In this sequel to Amy Hill Hearth’s “funny and charming” (Publishers Weekly) debut novel, Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women’s Literary Society, the eponymous book club reunites one year later, in the late summer of 1964.

An old land deed, the discovery that one of the key characters has been using a false name, and a dramatic court hearing are just a few of the highlights.

This is the sequel to Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society which I haven't read (yet), but you need not read the first book to enjoy this one.
