Eve Weldon is living her fantasy life. She grew up in the Midwest, and her mother's early death left Eve lonely and longing for more. She has worked in her fatherís law office for several years but has now decided to follow in her motherís footsteps. Her mother had a mysterious past that centered around the time she lived in Greenwich Village as a young woman before she married and had a family. Eveís fondest memories of her mother center on the stories she told of her time there and the wonderful writing community she was a part of.

Gathering her courage, Eve takes off for New York. She is lucky enough to find an apartment she can afford, and soon she worms her way into a writing job. The apartment, unfortunately, is haunted by the ghost of a Beat writer, but Eve tries to ignore the downside and takes pride in being the only one who can experience Donaldís existence. He is full of stories about the same group that Eveís mother was a part of, and she delves into his life to discover more about her mother. The job is also an issue. Eve tries several things to shine, but each seems to backfire. Can she make a secure life in this new environment, or will it prove to be too much for her, leaving her to head back home to a more routine existence?

Lorna Graham has written a charming, inspiring tale that will delight readers. Eve is hard not to love. Her ingenuity, resourcefulness, and determination to make her dreams a reality draw the reader into her world. Along the way, the Greenwich Village lifestyle of the 1960s is lovingly portrayed. This book is recommended for readers ready to be entertained and left cheerful and inspired.
