The Coach House

By Florence Osmund

General fiction, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


1945 Chicago. Newlyweds Marie Marchetti and her husband Richard have the perfect life together. Or at least it seems until Marie discovers cryptic receipts hidden in their basement and a gun in Richard's desk drawer. When she learns he had secretly attended a notable mobster’s funeral, her suspicions of him being involved in illicit deeds are confirmed, and she decides to leave him. But before she can orchestrate her well-thought-out plan, she inadvertently interrupts a meeting in their home between Richard and his so-called business associates. Enraged at her untimely appearance, Richard causes her to fall down the basement steps, and Marie is compelled to run for her life. Fate draws Marie to Atchison, Kansas, where she rents a coach house apartment tucked away behind a three-story Victorian home that she believes is a safe refuge and refreshing place to start over. Thanks to Richard, her world has been turned upside down, but it is the discovery of her real father and his surprising heritage that changes Marie’s life more than Richard ever could.
