:

It's a wonder to behold what happens when love moves in ...

Former child star Fiona Hume left the biz a decade ago, after she left rehab. She retreated to Baltimore and bought an old mansion downtown with dreams of restoring it into a masterpiece?maybe creating an artist's studio for herself. And living an artist's life.

That was the plan.

Ten years later, Fiona's huge house is filled with junk purchased at thrift stores, yard sales, or picked up from the side of the road. Each piece was destined for a project, but all she's got so far is a piece of twine with some antique buttons threaded down its length.

Her money has almost run out. She will soon lose her house and will be forced back into acting.

So it is that Fiona comes to rent out a room to a local blacksmith, Josiah. Little by little, Josiah magically transforms Fiona's home into something beautiful. She comes to life again. Her relationships heal and she experiences, perhaps for the first time, what it means to be human, what it means to be loved, and what it means when we let go and allow the wondrous workings of forces far bigger than we are to take over.

Had more potential
3 stars By Scarlette, Jun 25 2015
This book, once I got into the author's style which at times could be disjointed, was an easy read but I was left wanting the author to delve deeper. I did thoroughly enjoy Fiona's quirks. There was no reference to God or Christianity in the story however one could argue that Josia represents this, I personally don't feel the way Fiona ultimately dealt with certain people in the story is in line with Christian values. I would have liked the book to have a little more closure, having said that I would give this author another read as I did enjoy her characters.
