Summary
"It's a wonder to behold what happens when love moves in. Former child star Fiona Hume left the biz a decade ago, after she left rehab. She retreated to Baltimore and bought an old mansion downtown with dreams of restoring it into a masterpiece--maybe creating an artist's studio for herself. And living an artist's life. That was the plan. Ten years later, Fiona's huge house is filled with junk purchased at thrift stores, yard sales, or picked up from the side of the road. Each piece was destined for a project, but all she's got so far is a piece of twine with some antique buttons threaded down its length. Her money has almost run out. She will soon lose her house and will be forced back into acting. So it is that Fiona comes to rent out a room to a local blacksmith, Josiah. Little by little, Josiah magically transforms Fiona's home into something beautiful. She comes to life again. Her relationships heal and she experiences, perhaps for the first time, what it means to be human, what it means to be loved, and what it means when we let go and allow the wondrous workings of forces far bigger than we are to take over"--
Summary
When former child star and failed artist Fiona Humes money finally begins to run out, she must rent out part of the dilapidated mansion she never got around to renovating to happy and outgoing blacksmith Josia Yeu, who inspires a change in her
