Mary could feel the tears prickling at the corner of her eyes.
Her once magnificent family home was in ruins.
As she gingerly walked through what was left of the house it was evident by the smell that there had been squatters living there at some stage.
After her father’s bankruptcy years before, Mary had vowed that she would one day get her Family’s heritage back.
After twenty years she now had just managed to reacquire the once grand property.
Mary was determined; that what this place once was with her tender love and care it would be again.
