New Arrivals...

When Arthur Rook learns that his vital, creative wife, Amy, has been killed in an accident, he realizes to his horror that he has no idea what her last wishes would have been. Blindsided by the sudden loss and delirious grief, he flees his home and job in Los Angeles, guided only by a pink shoebox full of Amy's keepsakes. Among the contents, he finds an unmailed postcard written sixteen years earlier, addressed to a woman he's never heard of. Arthur follows it to the Darby-Jones boardinghouse in the sleepy town of Ruby Falls, New York.
There, he finds more answers than he bargained for in Mona Jones, Amy's best friend from childhhod, now the proprietor of the Darby-Jones and a professional baker of wedding cakes. It turns out that Mona and her daughter, Oneida, two quirky kindred spirits, have a lot to learn from Artur as well. As the three gradually unveil one another's secrets, they are forced to choose whether the truth will ruin them or teach them about love: how deeply it runs, how strong it makes us, and, even when all seems lost, how it brings us together and gives our lives meaning.
