As I've shared several times in the past - I love Door County, Wisconsin. It's location is nearly the entire length of the peninsula that sticks out into Lake Michigan, north of Green Bay. I've vacationed there since 2000, when I took my first-ever vacation alone, just 2 weeks after my younger sister passed away of cancer. It was such a relaxing place to visit - yet plenty to do if you really want to. I rented a condo, with a view of the water in Fish Creek.
Before I planned that vacation, as I have each time I've been there, I researched Door County and found out about The Thorpe House Inn, a B&B in Fish Creek. While browsing their site, I read about an author, LaVyrle Spencer and a book she wrote while she stayed in Fish Creek at the Thorpe House Inn. It was called Bittersweet. I made sure that I had that book with me, so I could sit, relax and read it while on my mini-vacation. I'm going to share the information about Thorpe House Inn and LaVyrle and her book with you, and I hope you enjoy it.

How do you teach a heart to love again? Maggie Pearson. Shattered by the loss of her husband, she struggled each day to put her grief behind her. To be there for her teenage daughter. And to face life again. When she returned to her Wisconsin home town, she never expected to feel a spark of longing-for her old high school sweetheart ... Eric Severson. His marriage to a driven career woman had left him childless and unhappy-he knew there had to be more to life than always wanting what you couldn't have. Seeing Maggie again filled him with hope. Maybe the answer to his dreams had just come to town.... Their memory of young love blossomed into an affair that would shake both their lives-and would challenge everything; they believed about loving each other. Could they follow a dream from the past? Or had they missed the chance of a lifetime?
