The delightful holiday tale of Josie Taternall and her South Carolina bed and breakfast from ”born storyteller” (The Washington Post) and New York Times bestselling author Lois Battle
After her best friend’s narrow brush with death, Josie decides that life is too short to let old grievances stand in the way of family togetherness. This year, she resolves, her three grown daughters – the girls she raised so carefully yet with such mixed results – will come home for Christmas. With her uncanny ear for Southern sensibility and her sharp-eyed wit, Battle gives us the perfect upstairs/downstairs comedy and a portrait of a family in all its tender, touching, and flawed glory that readers young and old will cherish.
“Full of warmth, humor, and characters I completely adore – as delicious as a weekend at your favorite inn.” -Dorothea Benton Frank, New York Times
