"Journalist Gemma Hendricks is sure that scoring an interview with Colin Firth will save her lagging career and rocky marriage. Yet with her bittersweet secret, a heart-tugging local story about women, family ties, love, and loss, captures her heart and changes everything. The story concerns Bea Crane, a floundering twenty-two-year old who learns in a deathbed confession letter that she was adopted at birth. Bea is in Boothbay Harbor to surreptitiously observe her biological mother, Veronica Russo, something of a legend in town, who Bea might not be ready to meet, after all. Veronica, a thirty-eight-year-old diner waitress famous for her healing pies, has come home to Maine to face her past. But when she's hired as an extra on the bustling movie set, she wonders if she hiding from the truth and perhaps the opportunity of a real life Mr. Darcy. These three women will discover more than they ever imagined in this coastal Maine town, buzzing with hopes of Colin Firth. Even the conjecture of his arrival inspires daydreams, amplifies complicated lives, and gives incentive to find their own romantic endings."--Publisher website.
