A Thorney issueIn My Dearest Enemy by Connie Brockway, an adventurer returns to his home to confront the upstart woman who has usurped his heritage.
Avery Thorne feels that he is entitled to his uncle's estate. The terms of the will, however, give Lily Bede the opportunity to acquire Horatio Thorne's estate if she can turn a profit. Lily and Avery are established adversaries, embroiled in a battle of wits. Yet Avery, the adventurer, and Lily, the suffragist, discover that their very competitiveness just might help Uncle Horatio's bequest reaches its rightful resolution. Brockway, like her characters, is gifted in the spirited gamesmanship of quick-witted and beguiling storytelling.
