This is a story of the renovation of a house, a home, and many hearts. The turns the book takes are not at all predictable and the ties to history and the changes in our generations and the way we view history and current world issues is awesome. My only complaint was that the end seemed to be tied to much in a "nice little bow" but it is a very good story despite this. ( )

Jo Lynn Hunter is married and at a crossroads in her life. She made a pact with her husband that they would not have children, but she has been wanting one, as well as a change in her life. She is called to her Aunt's and browbeat into renovating the old victorian mansion in her family. The mansion holds many secrets that begin to come out as the renovating begins. Not only is the house being renovated, but Jo Lynn as well. Very well written, with many characters that each has a story or secret to tell, and all are interconnected. I lost sleep staying up to finish it!! ( )

NCLA Review - Jo-Lynn is going through a mid-life crisis. Her marriage is faltering and she’s lost her identity as a woman of value. When her uncle dies, great-aunt Stella asks her to come back to restore the old family homestead in Georgia. As she peels back the old layers of the home, Jo-Lynn discovers family secrets hidden for decades. When she starts asking questions, she is threatened. Along the way, she rediscovers the value of family and belonging to a community. The author clearly has a personal understanding of the culture and history of the south and has developed a story with an interesting plot, captivating mystery and the discovery of God’s purpose for the main character.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800732731, Paperback)

Jo-Lynn Hunter is at a crossroads in life when her great-aunt Stella insists that she return home to restore the old family house in sleepy Cottonwood, Georgia. Seeing the project as the perfect excuse for some therapeutic time away from her self-absorbed husband and his snobby Atlanta friends, Jo-Lynn longs to get her teeth into a noteworthy and satisfying project. But things are not what they seem, both in the house and within the complex history of her family. Was her great-grandfather the pillar of the community she thought he was? What is Aunt Stella hiding? And will Jo-Lynn's marriage survive the renovation? Jo-Lynn isn't sure she wants to know the truth--but sometimes the truth has a way of making itself known.

The past comes alive in this well-written and thoughtful novel full of secrets, drama, and family with a hint of Southern drawl.
