…and the final installment…

Description: It’s springtime in Cherryvale, and when Cupid says, “make it a double,” town organizer Grace Harkins is busier than ever planning not one but two weddings. Threatening her joy though, a newcomer stirs up long-buried fears, and when a very public meltdown exposes her emotions, everyone in town wonders if Grace has finally taken on too much. Welcome to Cherryvale, where neighbors share, gardeners care, and God allows do-overs. The trees along the CherryPath are blooming, the weather’s glorious, and life is about to become exciting for folks in the town everyone wants to come home to.

Mary McDonough’s bestselling, compelling memoir about growing up on the classic television series, The Waltons, and her life after the series ended. 

UPDATE! Here’s what Mary’s been up to since “Lessons” came out. From her bio at  The Bigger Game speakers bureau: “Perhaps the result of the many years she spent working in and successfully navigating her place in a difficult and highly visible industry, it seemed only natural for Mary McDonough to reach out to others. Thus, her work began as a life coach, public speaker and activist. In fact, she spent 10 years lobbying congress on behalf of women’s health. After experiencing and overcoming her own health crisis, she began performing hands-on work to help others heal their health, spirits and lives. As a sought-after speaker and workshop leader, Mary helps individuals with personal change, create life balance, and return to a sense of self. Her workshop, “Body Branding, Getting Comfortable with the Skin You’re In” examines how we can undo the negativity about ourselves and change the picture you offer of yourself to the world.”

And please check out my blog, BEV SAID WHAT? where I reveal way too much about myself (so far, no real harm done, right, honey?) links to fun things I find, host tours and giveaways, and explore new worlds.
