Granddaughter Sara Jenkins returns to the homestead in Sweet Bay, Alabama following the death of her grandmother, Mags. Sara was raised from about age 10 by Mags after the accidental death of Sara’s parents. Sara couldn’t wait to escape her eccentric grandmother and found herself as a small business owner in New Orleans as a 20- and 30-something. Mags, though, left the Hideaway homestead to Sara to be restored and either sold or loved.
During the restoration, Sara finds details of her grandmother’s life and open a whole new perspective for her on the real story behind the eccentric Mags.
I thought the story was interesting. I was fine with how the chapters jumped around from Mags’ story to Sara’s story.
Thanks to Thomas Nelson for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
