Read full description of the books:
A brilliant debut novel from a New York Times bestselling author about a transplanted wife from Boston who arrives in Florida in the 1960s, starts a literary salon, and shakes up the status quo.
In 1962, Jackie Hart moved to Naples, Florida, from Boston with her husband and children. Wanting something personally fulfilling to do with her time, she starts a reading club and anonymously hosts a radio show, calling herself Miss Dreamsville.
The racially segregated town falls in love with Miss Dreamsville, but doesn’t know what to make of Jackie, who welcomes everyone into her book club, including a woman who did prison time for allegedly killing her husband, a man of questionable sexual preference, a young divorcee, as well as a black woman.
By the end of this novel, you’ll be wiping away the tears of laugher and sadness, and you just may become a bit more hopeful that even the most hateful people can see the light of humanitarianism, if they just give themselves a chance.

Amy Hill Hearth (pronounced HARTH) is a Peabody Award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author. Her topics include women's history, forgotten stories, and elder wisdom. Her tenth book, STREETCAR TO JUSTICE: HOW ELIZABETH JENNINGS WON THE RIGHT TO RIDE IN NEW YORK, was published January 2, 2018 by Greenwillow/HarperCollins.

The book received a starred review by Publisher's Weekly magazine with this quote: "A book that belongs in any civil rights library collection." It is also a selection of the Junior Library Guild. Ms. Hearth's earlier books include HAVING OUR SAY: THE DELANY SISTERS' FIRST 100 YEARS, a New York Times bestseller for more than two years that was adapted for Broadway and for an award-winning film. HAVING OUR SAY, called a classic oral history by Newsweek magazine, is the story of two centenarian sisters whose father was born into slavery. Hearth's other nonfiction books include the story of a pair of married Holocaust survivors who masqueraded as Christians and worked for the Underground during World War II, and a rare oral history of a female Native American Elder whose name was 'Strong Medicine.' Ms. Hearth is also the author of two historical novels published by Atria Books/Simon & Schuster: MISS DREAMSVILLE AND THE COLLIER COUNTY WOMEN'S LITERARY SOCIETY (2012) and MISS DREAMSVILLE AND THE LOST HEIRESS OF COLLIER COUNTY (2015). The novels explore the tensions of life in a small, sleepy town in Florida in the early 1960s.
