As her once close-knit family grew apart, Julie’s mother obsessively searched for the girl, and when her mother died, Julie took up the search. Even as she went on with life, discovering a love for art that she attributed to her painter grandfather, she never let go of the hope that she might find her sister.

When real life imitates fiction....reader Bretta Chapman sent me this photo of the Vanderhorst mausoleum at the Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston---just like I'd described it in RETURN TO TRADD STREET. Except I've never been to the cemetery and didn't know this existed!! #placesoftradd

You should definitely visit Magnolia. It's really beautiful. Some of the funerary art is truly amazing.

Just shows you what a talented writer you are, next book 📚, please. Dreams of falling was superior. 📖📖📚📚

Don’t go alone to Magnolia Cemetery. Take a gang. If you need me to drive down, I will.

I have got to do another reread!

If you go and you find a penny there . . . . .
