Sara Jenkins couldn't wait to move from hometown of Sweet Bay, Alabama. She moves to New Orleans to open her own antique shop, Bits and Pieces. However, Sara's last living relative, her grandmother passes away and Sara inherits her childhood home, The Hideaway. When Sara arrives she hopes to finish the renovation of The Hideaway and quickly return back to her life in New Orleans. But she discovers a side of her grandmother she never knew before and she feels more at home at Sweet Bay than she ever did. Will Sara be able to see passed her grandmother's quirky persona? Will Sara find somewhere she belongs? What secrets are hidden away at the Hideaway?
The novel was a quick and interesting read. I like how the novel alternated between the past (the grandmother's past) and the present (Sara's present). It made the story multi-faceted and different. After reading this story I thought about all the stories the older generations of my family and how they always wanted to have someone to share their story with. Sometimes, it hard to appreciate what you have in life until it's gone. A touching novel and I can't wait to read other books from the author.
