This Fine Life by Eva Marie Everson

I had previously read the Potluck series of books by this author and was excited to read the newest of her novels. I was not disappointed. It was a great read that really made me think about the time period that this book was centered around. There are not many books that discuss the 1950-60's and this book really gave me a new vision about what life might have been like for me if I had lived then and gave me a new look at how my grandmother may have lived. It had a great meaning as well. If you are looking for a book to add to your summer reading list, this one is it!

This Fine Life is a stand-alone novel by popular author Eva Marie Everson that transports readers to small-town Georgia in 1959: Mariette Puttnam has just graduated from boarding school during the summer of 1959. When she returns to her privileged life at home, she isn't sure where life will take her. More schooling? A job? Marriage? Nothing feels right. How could she know that the answer is waiting for her within the narrow stairwell of her father's apparel factory, exactly between the third and fourth floors?

In this unique and tender story of an unlikely romance, Everson takes readers on a journey through the heart of a young woman bound for the unknown. Readers will experience the joys of new love, the perseverance of true friendship, and the gift of forgiveness that comes from a truly fine life.

Eva Marie Everson is a successful speaker, a popular radio personality, and the award-winning author of Things Left Unspoken. She is coauthor of The Potluck Club series and The Potluck Catering Club series. She lives in Florida.
