I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. I love stories about the South; all of the food, history, culture and sweet tea that you could possibly want is at your fingertips. In this case, the story evolved by describing the past of the Woodburn's, a prominent family in Tennessee that the protagonist, Ava visits. Ava has been friends with Will Woodburn all through college and she receives the perfect opportunity to go down there and write, per Will's request. She stays at the Woodburn family estate, writing her novel and slowly unraveling all of the ghosts and skeletons in the Woodburn family closet. In between writing and playing Nancy Drew, Ava becomes interested in Jake, the blapasck sheep in the small town.
This book is about discovery, passion, heartbreak, disappointment, but most of all discovering the life you were born to lead.
