Marcher Mills, an imaginary town set in southern Ontario, keeps welcoming the new characters in Marilyn Temmer’s books.

The latest to arrive are three sisters endeavouring to escape a threat of blackmail. Each has a business. Lavinia’s is making scented products such as perfumes, colognes, etc. Many of the flowers are grown by her youngest sister, Prudence, and Sophy, the middle sister, features them in her milliner’s establishment.

These young ladies also bring their enthusiasm for cycling—a sport horrifying to the majority of the older generation. Really—who is chaperoning the various activities, held at some distance from the nearest town or village?

Another new arrival will appear before the end of 2019. Keep visiting this site to see who. And when!

Feature Book



"With equal measures of humour and heart, Marilyn Temmer skilfully writes a world from a bygone era. Her characters spring from the page and make us long for a simpler time when dancing meant a waltz." Terry Fallis

Lavinia and her two sisters have changed their names and left their home town in an effort to escape the clutches of their guardian's brother, Cyrus.

Sam Blake recognizes "his lady" at first sight. But he has no idea that the Spencer sisters are independent, business-owning, bicycle-riding modern women.

See what happens when Sam dons sword and shield and endeavors to save his lady from certain ruin.
