Cassie Simon is a struggling artist living in New York City. When she receives a call from a magistrate telling her she has inherited 60 acres of land in Sweetwater, Tennessee, from her grandfather, whom she never knew, she takes it as a sign: it's time for a change. She moves to the small Southern town where her mother, Ellen, grew up - and where she died tragically when Cassie was three.

Would you try another book from Christina Baker Kline and/or Suzanne Toren and Amy Rubinate ?

The author's story was ruined by the reader...i have never had a hard time listening to a book before...I listen to at least 2 books a month. The narator for the older grandmother was fine. It was the younger reader that almost made me not finish the book.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Great man...good story...but I read and thouroughly enjoyed the first autobiography. Not really worth a second book. Fantastic narration (: !
