* Bed & Breakfast was a Selection of the Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club. It's Christmas time in Beaufort, South Carolina. Josie Tatternall--a military widow turned B&B proprietor--has just witnessed her best friend's narrow brush with ooks at the far end of her life's arc and feels the urgent need to reevaluate what she has done. A major retrospective of her sculpture in a New York gallery offers a daunting but exhilarating chance for the work to be considered anew. Meanwhile, a forced retirement from her teaching position leads her to examine her own vulnerability. In lambent and affecting prose, Truitt muses on the mingling of art an life, celebrates the love of family, and envisions the possibilities that the future yet holds.
