Selected by Indie Booksellers for the August 2010 Indie Notables
“This is one of the most engaging books I have read in a while. A quirky cast of characters come together to make up a highly entertaining, touching book. Chief among them are: Oneida Jones, a self-described freak who has embraced her oddness; her mother Mona, wedding cake baker and proprietress of the Darby-Jones boardinghouse; and Arthur Rook, a recently widowed photographer who believes he can 'see' the real essence of a person. You will come to love these characters and this book!”
-- Avery Dickey, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL


Description

A sudden death, a never-mailed postcard, and a long-buried secret set the stage for a luminous and heartbreakingly real novel about lost souls finding one another.
