The Rabbit's Foot: The Compelling Tale of an Old Man's Search for his Missing Son (Hartford Manor Book 3) Kindle Edition
Mr Edward Snell was more than a little curious when Robert Fellwood, the heir to Hartford Manor and his elderly aunt, the Lady Margery, begged an audience on a Saturday morning. However, being such valued clients, the solicitor was happy to oblige. As his clerk showed the visitors in, he was intrigued to see them followed by an old man who, though respectably dressed, had something of a vagrant about him. The crisp suit in which he was attired could not disguise his weather-beaten face or his missing teeth.
Robert introduced his Uncle Sam and explained he had come to claim his inheritance. The solicitor was old enough to remember the extensive search for Thomas Fellwood when his father, Ephraim, died in 1840. However, that was some forty-five years ago and the young man had never been found. Yet, here was Sam, who claimed to be Thomas Fellwood’s son and, even more surprising, was the fact that the Fellwood family appeared to have accepted him as such.
“The Rabbit’s Foot” is an intriguing and compelling novel with many unexpected twists and turns. Set in the small seaside village of Hartford, it tells the tale of how an old man, who has spent his life with barely a penny to his name, suddenly finds himself rich beyond his wildest dreams. However, there is only one thing that Sam Fellwood truly wants and that is to be reunited with his son, Marrok, whom he abandoned at the age of five. Will Sam find the happiness that has eluded him for so many lonely years?

About the author
Top reviews from other countries
But the story continues and, while I am glad to see that a lot of it revolves around Annie and her extended family, I was delighted to see the author has introduced a new threat revolving around Theresa, the daughter of George carter, and a new mystery in the history of the old tramp, Sam.
I loved these two new elements because they took the saga in a slightly different direction. The danger Theresa finds herself in is terrible and I could hardly turn the pages, worrying what fate would befall her.
The story of Sam the tramp is wonderful. I love these old codgers – Sam, Peter and Lady Margery. Despite the difference in their stations in life, the three are firm friends and the affection they each share for one another is true.
So, the Hartford Manor series has come to an end and I hope it is only a temporary ending. I would love to read more – to see the babies grown up and discover how their lives pan out and I will definitely be keeping my fingers crossed for another book.
Health issues come to the fore, together with social attitudes to disabilities that many in the Victorian era preferred to ignore. Robert Fellwood, the heir to the Hartford Estate, and his wife Annie, from the working classes tackle the problems head-on.
Sam, a newly discovered member of the Fellwood family, inherits wealth; but having spent most of his life in obscurity, all he wants is to find his missing son. Although not all his family accept him, those that do help him to adjust to his new life.
It will be interesting to see where the next part of the story will go.
Now I've come to the end, there is a spin off tale somewhere, so I'm going off to find it!
