Having gained critical acclaim for nonfiction works such as New York Times best-seller (and Broadway production) Having Our Say, Amy Hill Hearth bursts onto the fiction scene with a work that is as hilarious as it is heartbreakingly poignant. Opening in 1962, Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society features Jackie Hart, who unwittingly steps into a hotbed of societal issues when she launches a reading club while anonymously hosting a radio show.

"The author of the biography HAVING OUR SAY: The Delany Sisters First 100 Years has created her first novel. Dora Witherspoon recalls an unforgettable time in 1960s Florida when Yankee Jackie Hart descended on the town of Naples and changed everyone forever. Hearth as narrator is splendid. Each character is special--it's impossible to choose favorites. Jackie begins a literary society, which welcomes outsiders and encourages members to reach for their dreams. Hearth's deliberate pace, which is perfect for the time and setting, keeps the listener eager to hear what will happen next. The postscript ties things together--with a clever twist--but listeners will still want to hear more about these delightful new friends. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
