"A memorable tale"
As he lay in an El Salvador hospital in critical condition,
photographer Nick Proffit receives the letter that informs
him his brother Craig died. The letter from his sister-in-
law Jenna traveled around the world taking two years to
catch up to Nick. He plans to come home to learn what
happened to his beloved sibling.
Nick arrives in Harmony Hills, Georgia to learn how far his
brother's widow and his preadolescent boys have fallen by
their current address. He is shocked to also find out
Jenna rents rooms to two borders needing a place to start
fresh. Nick revises his charter as he must know why his
brother's family have been ostracized and where did his now
deceased father's wealth go, a task made easier because he
is falling in love with Craig's widow and two sons.
This is an interesting character study and contemporary
romance that focuses on the key cast members' reactions to
the death of a loved one. The heroine keeps on moving in
spite of the condemnation of the community because she
knows she must provide a nurturing environment for her two
children. Nick is more enigmatic because he never seemed
concerned with life back home even when he didn't receive
letters from Craig, but that still doesn't lessen his need
to know now. Fans of small town dramas will enjoy a visit
to 317 BEULAH STREET.
