My New Novel, Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County, to be Pub'd Sept. 8 by Simon & Schuster's Atria Books


“Radiating southern grace and charm in the manner of Fannie Flagg and Mary Kay Andrews, Hearth’s uplifting novel, a sequel to Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society (2012), is a story of how several very different women learn to navigate the shifting mores and niceties of southern society on their own terms.” - Booklist magazine (American Library Association)
