ABOUT THE BOOK (from the publisher):
It is the summer of 1959 and Mariette Puttnam has just graduated from boarding school. When she returns to her privileged life at home, she isn't sure where life will take her. More schooling? A job? Marriage? Nothing feels right. How could she know that she would find the answer waiting for her in the narrow stairwell of her father's apparel factory, exactly between the third and fourth floors?

In this unique and tender romance, popular author Eva Marie Everson takes you on a journey through the heart of a young woman bound for the unknown. Discover the joys of new love, the perseverance of deep friendship, and the gift of forgiveness that comes from a truly fine life.

Eva Marie Everson is a successful speaker, a popular radio personality, and the award-winning author of Things Left Unspoken. She is coauthor of The Potluck Club series and The Potluck Catering Club series. She lives in Florida.

This Fine Life captures the essence of the late 1950's and early 1960's and a young couple trying to find their way in life and in love. Romance and roses give way to discouragement and dishes as Mariette and Thayne find themselves transplanted to a a tiny town in the deep South where everyone knows everyone else's business. Tender and poignant, this book is an apt depiction of marital tenacity in an age when folks took marriage vows seriously and stuck it out "for better or for worse." Mariette's struggles -- to find friends, to meet expectations, and to understand her husband's passion for God -- are expertly portrayed. What she discovers about herself, about God, and about friendship just might change how she defines This Fine Life.

This fine book can be purchased directly from the publisher or from Amazon and other booksellers.
