Inn In Abingdon by Donnie Stevens
Spencer Aubrey finds more than inspiration. While attempting to write his second novel at the Martha Washington Inn in Abingdon, Virginia, Spencer desperately seeks a way to put his life back together after being separated from the love of his life and losing his career job as a successful newspaper columnist. At the inn, Spencer meets Katherine Broadwater, a young girl he believes to be from a local theater because of her old-fashioned dress and southern dialect. He becomes captivated by the story she weaves about herself and a boy named Sam that took place during the Civil War when the inn was used as a hospital for wounded soldiers. While seeking to learn the outcome of the passionate love story she shares, doubt and confrontation challenge Spencer as he tries to convince everyone that the elusive Katherine does exist. Or has his troubled past burdened his sanity to separate truth from fantasy?
