“A moving, honest story of friends and family, mistakes that shape our lives, and family bonds broken, with a reminder that forgiveness and restoration is possible through love and binding memories. The characters and the small town of Noon Sun are charming. The rich descriptions made me want to book travel plans and visit immediately, to seek them out and befriend them all.”

Description

"A perfect read for lovers of Antoine Laurain's The Red Notebook, Gabrielle Zevin's The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, and Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove." --Library Journal, starred review

"Phaedra Patrick understands the soul." --Nina George, New York Times bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop

A delightful gem of a novel about family, forgiveness and finding your way from the bestselling author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

Benedict Stone has settled into a complacent and predictable routine. Business at his jewelry shop has dried up; his marriage is on the rocks. His life is in desperate need of a jump start--and then a surprise arrives at his door in the form of his audacious teenage niece, Gemma. Reckless and stubborn, she invites herself into Benedict's world and turns his orderly life upside down. But she might just be exactly what he needs to get his life back on track.

Filled with colorful characters and irresistible charm, Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone is a luminous reminder of the unbreakable bonds of family, and shows that having someone to embrace life with is always better than standing on your own.
