From USA Today bestselling author Curtiss Ann Matlock, comes this charming and warm-hearted story of a woman’s awakening to unexpected love.
A widow of ten years, Mary Lunsford lives a quiet, predictable life in the small town where she grew up. Her mother lives down the block in one direction, her eldest daughter just around the corner in the opposite direction. Two more grown daughters are preparing to take flight from the nest and into their own lives in the world. Mary is about to be alone and on her own for the first time in her life. She is far more ready to be on her own than the women of her life are ready to allow her.
Mary’s first indication of restlessness is to decide to make a small change--just a bit of color added to the rooms of her house. She has no idea that with this change of color her entire world will change, as will the lives of the women around her, because it brings to all their lives a colorful man.
Jim Pettijohn enters this household of women with his cans of paint, charming smile, and sunshine in his pockets. He soon sweeps Mary off her feet and causes the other women to get up in arms. Come along for the delightful time!
“This novel is about many things, but at its heart is the story of a woman who must learn her own worth and how to find her happiness again when her life has drastically changed.” ~ Ionia Martin, reviewer readfulthingsblog.com
