The book cover is amazing. So is her likable character, 35 year old Tish McComb, who, on a whim, moves from Michigan to Alabama and buys the Civil War era home once owned by her ancestors. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to her, said ancestors have a nasty and still well-known reputation as carpetbaggers. Nobody except for the antique store owner is willing to give her a chance.
One thing I love about Tish is that her frosty "welcome" in town doesn't prevent her from taking in a very troubled homeless local girl who has been rejected by her family, even though it only makes everyone even more suspicious of her.
