6/17/2003 Love for Sale for sale
June 17, 2003. This day saw the publication of Jill Churchill's novel Love For Sale. It is early 1933, with Roosevelt about to replace Hoover in the White House, and Lily Brewster has a corpse in her B-and-B. This is the fourth book in the "Grace and Favor" series in which Lily and her brother Robert, newly poor, try to survive the Depression.
" Churchill really does
pull all her subplots together, which is more than you can say for
President Hoover." - Kirkus Reviews.
