About the Author

Terri-Lynne DeFino was born and raised in New Jersey, but escaped to the wilds of Connecticut, where she still lives with her husband and her cats. She spends most days in her loft, in her woodland cabin along the river, writing about people she's never met. Other days, she can be found slaying monsters with her grandchildren. If you knock on her door, she'll most likely be wearing a tiara. She'll also invite you in and feed you, because you can take the Italian girl out of Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey Italian out of the girl.


"A solid hit, perfect for book clubs and readers who love to read about writers, writing, and books; why we love them; and how they make life worth living"--Library Journal (starred review)
"DeFino's latest novel is a tale that emphasizes that second chances, artistic redemption and true love -- in all its forms -- can come at any time and any age. DeFino has a unique gift for language that captures the nostalgia and still-sharp wit of her aging artists perfectly."--RT Book Reviews
"Rediscover the sheer joy of writing...intriguing characters help keep the reader engaged."--Booklist
"This is a book to feel as much as to intense texture of enchantment and reality."--Historical Novel Society
"[A] charming story about the power of love and the power of reading."
