Look inside Bitzy and Beau Smith's romance as they dive deep into teenage passion and sex, trying to figure out how to love each other. A Home for Wayward Husbands is a quick humorous read about the fantasy of going home. Going back to the home where you felt safe, secure and content, where you felt loved for the first time, but there's an old saying…"You can't go home again…" Can tormented Beau Smith go home? Don't tell Beau that because he shows up out of the blue to set life with Bitzy, his one true love, back on track. He's going to try to come home no matter what everyone thinks. But he doesn't come alone, bringing his best buddy, Spec, who he loves, trusts and understands more than any other person, home with him. Beau and Spec's relationship confounds Bitzy, Dot, and Stormie, as they try to figure out what to do with the two unexpected guests. Mistakes, misdemeanors, and high crimes in Atlanta, Texas are like watching a candle burn in the window as you drive by, it glows pretty, and inviting, but you get a false glimpse of what is happening in the house. The real nightmares lie behind sparkling clean windows and perfected driveways that shield the inhabitants from their own truths. Growing up with the small-town ideas and small-minded beliefs in the Southern East Texas town of Atlanta, Texas, the two young lovers fall into a storm of passion that is held together by wishes on stars and pulled apart by a universe that is out to get them. Can you really return to the love, to the romance, to the passion you had in your youth, and set all your mistakes right? Bitzy is rattled and confused when Beau arrives sick, worn-out, and tired of life. She's shocked beyond belief that her heartthrob has returned. As the ghosts of their past haunt them like the passion that brought Bitzy and Beau together, once again chaos ensues for Bitzy and Beau. Beau rips and tears at the boards and screens of their lives exposing raw sensitive nerves underneath their worn and calloused exteriors bringing out their deepest desires. He wants to rebuild, remodel, and start fresh, but do they have what it takes to start over? Too much trauma, too much time, too much heartache has passed under the Smith's bridge to cross over to normal lives where everyone lives happily ever after. Dot, Bitzy's sister, adds her tilted sense of humor to the situation trying to make sense out of Bitzy's decision-making. Bitzy works through life knowing nothing ever changes and everything always changes, an oxymoron of truths in her world. And of course, there's Wes, Bitzy's best-guy friend, and Opal Anne, one of her few friends from high school, dragging their problems through Bitzy's teapot like used up tea leaves. Wes comes face-to-face with Beau Smith, the one person he hoped he would never see again, and Wes's lack of sensitivities boil over in a display that defies his logical mind and he makes a move that changes everyone's idea of who Wes is, including Bitzy. With Leon Smith's heavy-handed influence and Phillipa Foreshaw's hippie dope-smoking devil-may-care attitude the Smith-Jeter soup gets mixed up in a tangled affair of romance, murder, sex, and some rowdy religious antics. Poor damaged Stormie thinks she has overcome her childhood traumas of having Beau and Bitzy for parents, but real life comes rushing back at her when she sees her Daddy once again. Beau and Bitzy, and Stormie, as well as Dot and Wes, have to face who they were in the beginning, what they became, and where they are headed in their dysfunctional lives. Do they live happily ever after? Can Bitzy revive the most talked about and hottest romance in Atlanta's small-town history? Does she love Beau enough want to what he wants?
