Restoration of Celia Fairchild: Virtual Author Event with Marie Bostwick

Wednesday, March 10 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick needs no introduction—she is the author of fifteen novels and three novellas, several of which have  gone on to be New York Times and USA Today bestsellers. Her 2015 novel, The Second Sister, was adapted in 2018 into a  Hallmark Hall of Fame film, Christmas Everlasting, and starred Patti LaBelle. This March, William Morrow is proud to  present THE RESTORATION OF CELIA FAIRCHILD.

Celia Fairchild is the writer behind the immensely popular “Dear Calpurnia” advice  column, a brand that she has built an identity and a life on. It is, despite her divorcee and single woman status, the reason an adoption agency agrees to move forward  with her application after she is shortlisted as a potential placement. In one  afternoon, however, this last ditch hope for motherhood hangs in the balance when  she loses her column to a media conglomerate and receives news she has inherited  her aunt’s estate in Charleston. With nothing left for her in New York, Celia says goodbye to her former life. When she  arrives, the grand house she once remembered has fallen into disrepair, but the community of Charleston is more than  ready to welcome her home. With a cast of colorful characters and forgotten figures from her distant past, Celia begins  to restore the historical house to its stately prime, and with it, dares to imagine a different future for herself, her new  found family, and the child she so desperately wants.  

Filled with hope, wit, and quiet wisdom, THE RESTORATION OF CELIA FAIRCHILD is a balm for the soul,  and the perfect read for fans of The Lost and Found Bookshop, The Oysterville Sewing Circle, and Evie Drake Starts Over. Watch the book trailer here
