This book is a light but rewarding read. Celia Fairchild is a writer who loses her job as an advice columnist when the New York City-based newspaper she wrote for is sold. At first, she is devastated, but when she inherits a home in Charleston from her Aunt Calpurnia, she builds a new life for herself. She had been close to her aunt as a youngster but hadn’t been in touch for many years. Her advice column was named Dear Calpurnia in honor of this aunt who had provided so much love and guidance during her difficult childhood.

While cleaning and renovating the house and preparing for the adoption of a baby, and recovering from a recent divorce, Celia learns many lessons about life and relationships. Possibly the most remarkable growth is when she begins to consider her own advice. For a well-respected advice columnist, she had difficulty trusting her instincts upon which she based her column’s advice. Celia learns to open her heart to community members and give people second chances. She even overcame her distaste for dogs when she meets a long-lost relative who has canine friends. Through some interesting characters, Bostwick emphasizes that families can extend beyond blood relatives, and friends are the families we create for ourselves.

Bostwick also includes some interesting symbols in this seemingly simple book. Yarn is often a symbol of connection and creativity. It can also represent industriousness and happiness. Of course, spinning a yarn is used when building a story, especially one with curious adventures. Celia, the protagonist, is a writer and storyteller, and the discovery of her late aunt’s yarn cave represents a turning point in her life’s trajectory. Not only that, but she reconnects with a childhood friend, Polly, at a yarn store. The yarn allows the plot to develop in several ways, and the characters’ connections are generated based on yarn-related segments. Also, the rebuilding of Aunt Calpurnia’s house moves along at the pace of many percolating friendships. Windows become an essential part of the completion of the house restoration, and their installation coincides with the readers’ gaining a view into the windows of the main characters’ souls. I believe there was symbolism intended in some of the characters’ names. Calpurnia, the final wife of Julus Caesar, is often used in literature to denote a notable woman. Although misunderstood by some characters, Teddy is like a soft-cuddly teddy bear, and Celia has a variety of meanings: in Latin, it means blind one, and in Hebrew, it is a rock. So, Bostwick presents a novel worth reading and considering at a variety of levels.

I really enjoyed The Restoration of Celia Fairchild by Marie Bostwick. I love books set in the South. I love books about restoring historic homes. And I love books about starting over and reinventing yourself. So, this book was a win. Definitely a great summer read. Thanks to Library Reviewers for giving me a copy of this book to review. ( )

The Restoration of Celia Fairchild was well written with appealing characters. The story took turns I wasn't expecting, but that all were believable and moved the story forward. I enjoyed the descriptions of South Carolina and the people who lived there. I also liked the fact that all but one of the characters grew during the course of the book. (I react to characters that don't grow the same way I react to people in real life don't grow--I get sort of tired of them.) There is just a hint of religion in the book which accounts for the "everything came out fine for everybody" aspect, which can make for a happier book for people who enjoy that sort of thing. I'm tempted to read more by this author. ( )

I read several reviews of this book before I started reading (as women's fiction can be a little hit-or-miss for me) and decided to proceed once I saw words like "witty", "Charleston", and "knitting". It took a little while for me to engage with the characters but once I did, I really enjoyed it. There is so much to love about this book--especially as a southern woman. If you're looking for a cotton candy read (light, fluffy and sweet), I would give this one a shot. ( )

I really enjoyed this sweet tale of advice columnist Celia Fairchild. She is reeling from a divorce and a unwanted career change when she finds out she has inherited a house from her Aunt Calpurnia. In the meantime, she decides she wants to adopt a baby and have her very own family. Well, she gets her family...in the very best way possible! ( )
