This book touches the reader in so many ways. It is about forgiveness, understanding, family, and friendship. Author Marie Bostwick connects you with her character’s feelings ranging from despair to hope and from loneliness to belonging. For me, references to real locations in this story brought back long-ago memories of time spent in Charleston, South Carolina.

Popular advice columnist Celia Fairchild longs for a child. It is only after she is divorced and no longer working that she learns a pregnant teen is considering her “Dear Birthmother” letter to adopt the unborn child. At the same time Celia is contacted and told that her Aunt Calpernia died and that she has inherited the family home in Charleston. What a surprise it is to find that her aunt had become a hoarder and that the lovely property she remembered was now in deplorable condition.

With encouragement from her best friend, Calvin, it is decided that she will leave New York and remain in Charleston to restore, clean out, and move into the home. Getting the work done before a planned home visit from the adoption attorney is a challenge, but Celia finds unexpected help from her new friends and neighbors.

Every person in this book has a reason for being there. Each has a distinct personality and a role to fill in making The Restoration of Celia Fairchild a complete story.

I won an advance copy through the Early Reviewers at LibraryThing.com with no promise of a positive review. This is the first time I have read one of this author’s books and look forward to reading more of her work. ( )

The Restoration of Celia Fairchild
By Marie Bostwick

A Perfect Blend of Characters, Setting and Story


When Celia Fairchild, a NYC advice columnist of the Dear Capurnia column receives a late night phone call, her life changes forever. Celia is one of three “couples” being considered by a young birth mother to adopt her baby. She throws herself into proving that despite her recent divorce she’s still perfect adoptive mother material. But when she loses her big city job, her only option might be to sell old family Charleston home left to her by her recently departed, Aunt Calpurnia. But Celia soon learns the house is a wreck and needs a fast makeover. Is it even possible to have a renovation done in time for a meeting with the birth mother and her parents?

The Restoration of Celia Fairchild is a delightful uplifting novel of friendship, family and resilience. It is both hilarious and poignant. Author Marie Bostwick’s writing is delightfully fresh and she has woven a perfect blend of characters, setting and story. It is a light, fast and enjoyable read, ideal for the reading during the pandemic and beyond.

Celia Fairchild’s character, the new bonds she forms, and her fortitude in the face of adversity were just a few of the story elements that made this book captivating. Ceila Fairchild comes to life on the pages of this soulful story of courage and hopefulness.

Marie Bostwick is a NYT and USA Today best-selling author of eighteen uplifting works of historical and contemporary fiction. Most recently, Hope on the Inside was published in March 2019 and chosen as a Reder’s Digest “Select Edition” book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
