Publisher's Summary

A Southern novel of family and antiques from the bestselling author of the beloved Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
Beth Hoffman's best-selling debut, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, won admirers and acclaim with its heartwarming story and cast of unforgettable characters. Now her unique flair for evocative settings and richly drawn Southern personalities shines in her compelling new novel, Looking for Me.
Teddi Overman found her life's passion for furniture in a broken-down chair left on the side of the road in rural Kentucky. She learns to turn other people's castoffs into beautifully restored antiques, and eventually finds a way to open her own shop in Charleston. There, Teddi builds a life for herself as unexpected and quirky as the customers who visit her shop. Though Teddi is surrounded by remarkable friends and finds love in the most surprising way, nothing can alleviate the haunting uncertainty she's felt in the years since her brother Josh's mysterious disappearance. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi is drawn home to Kentucky. It's a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family - and to find herself at last. But first she must decide what to let go of and what to keep.
Looking for Me brilliantly melds together themes of family, hope, loss, and a mature once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. The result is a tremendously moving story that is destined to make bestselling author Beth Hoffman a novelist to whom readers will return again and again as they have with Adriana Trigiani, Fannie Flagg, and Joshilyn Jackson.

Beautiful book

Any additional comments?

This is such a beautiful book to listen to. The narrator is excellent. From the first word to the last she has you captivated in the story. I loved all of the characters. It's heartwarming, touching and at times heartbreaking. The book is beautifully written. Although, I think I enjoyed listening to it more than I would have if I had read it. It is one of those rare occasions when the author and the narrator come together in perfect harmony. Jenna Lamia tells the story rather than some narrators that just read the book - there's a big difference ! I am very sad to have finished it.

A wonderful saga

I enjoyed this story immensely. I hadn't read any previous books by this author and didn't know what to expect but what I found was a wonderful long story full of likeable, real characters. I looked forward to hearing the next chapter and lingered over chores so I could hear just a little bit more!
I love Jenna Lamias narration...I could listen to her voice for hours, it is the perfect voice for the story.
Well worth a listen.
