Agree that it was very sweet but in such a good way. Light and hope balance the dark side of the book and I very much appreciated the strength of the protagonist to follow her passion. Some good lessons here and the reader is awesome.

This book is the story of a woman from her childhood, through to her thirties. Teddi grew up in rural Kentucky, on a small family farm with her parents and younger brother Josh. Very early on she developed an interest in making objects nice, and had an eye for furniture. She began finding pieces, doing work on them and selling them by the side of the road. She knew she wanted to find a way to do this for a living, and relying on the one contact she had in distant Charleston, she makes her way into a career that fits her.
Her younger brother has always been attuned to nature, and, following an incident with animal cruelty leaves home suddenly. Teddi's search for her brother has been a constant in her life for years, and despite everything she still lives in hope that he is out there somewhere. Meanwhile, though, her life in Charleston goes on, and she finds that if she wants happiness, she must let her brother go and live for herself.
A story with a strong female character, with a good storyline, and a bit of romance. Very enjoyable.

My teeth are aching from the sweetness of this book. It's 4 tsp of sugar in a cup of coffee sweet.....double chocolate cake with chocolate icing sweet....Southern sweet iced tea sweet.
The story of this book is a good one. The family saga and mystery intrigued me and the Southern charm was nice and made for a relaxing story. But as the book went on, there was more & more talk of dresses, fabrics, the right colour blush, pretty smiles & twinkling eyes. Yikes, I thought...the only thing missing is a romance. Boom....next chapter, the romance is introduced. From there, this is pure romance.
All in all, a decent audio for long commutes. It's nice. It's sweet....very, very sweet.

While this was a very quiet book, it is deceptively complex and kept me completely engaged from start to finish. It is well written and the characters are well developed. It’s a sweet, delicate book with a high emotional impact. Southern charm and grace at its best.

Never tie your happiness to the tail of someone else's kite
