Sanctuary introduces newly retired publishing executive, Theo Phillips, and his wife, Liddy, to the time-lost South Georgia town of Shiloh. They leave the shadows of Atlanta and move into a quaint home of notoriety. While making new friends, they discover twenty-first-century challenges threaten the town’s laid-back lifestyle. Theo’s interest in a memorial launches him into investigating tragic events that have left Shiloh unsettled. Theo and Liddy’s retirement dreams take a turn that could unravel both them and the idyllic life they and many others look for in Shiloh.
Theo and Liddy Phillips are newcomers to the nostalgic small town of Shiloh. Met with honest, relaxed warmth by most, this newly retired couple have arrived at just the right time. Mystery shrouds the town as the truth about a tragic fire sent a beloved coach to his death, and unsettled many. The strands of truth beg to be unraveled by Theo, a former journalist, and as he and his wife settle in, the story unwraps itself like a gift into their welcoming and compassionate lives.
Idyllic small town life and a bevy of believable and lovable characters left me wanting more as I finished the last chapter. Reading Sanctuary is like coming home to well-worn slippers and comfortable friends. A fantastic first novel by author and life coach TM Brown. I’m ready for the sequel.
