Review; Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society By: Amy Hill Hearth

Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society: A NovelMiss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society: A Novel by Amy Hill Hearth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It's 1962 in Naples, FL - The people all know one another, from their secrets, their achievements, and their faults, but that all changes. The events are seen through the narrator looking back to that one summer.
Enter a new family in this tight knit town and new ideas begin. Jackie Hart has come with her husband and children to this tiny town and brought some flourish. The Women's Literary Society is born and within those members a deep understanding of love, friendship, truth, and possibilities occur. At first glance they appear as misfits looking for a way to fit in, including Dora (the narrator) - a divorced woman who works at the post office.
As time goes on they learn more about each other, uncovering some deep secrets that no one else would know... enter a new voice on the evening radio, Miss Dreamsville. The town has gone crazy over the speculation of who she could be, townspeople taking bets.. as Miss Dreamsville enters the scene so do the KKK and the unraveling of secrets and the possibilities of dreams coming true.
What an amazing feel good book, filled with great characters that fill the pages. You will find it irresistible to put this book down. Although it is an easy, quick read, the story and the people will stay with you long after you have finished. I can't wait for another story from Ms. Hearth.
