Here is our book for September!   Should be a good one! 

Theodora Teddie Overman runs a successful antiques shop, filling her days with restoration projects and buying trips. But she’s having a hard time filling the hole in her heart left by her younger brother, who ran away from home and disappeared at age 17—now presumed dead—to live in the wilderness. Teddie was never close to her family, having left home shortly after high-school graduation, determined to make it in the antiques world rather than attend the boring secretarial school her mother had in mind. Now in her midthirties, Teddie misses the chance to reconcile with her estranged mother and becomes obsessed with finding her brother after all these years. Along the way, she finds love and comes to terms with her childhood. Hoffman has a good ear for dialogue, and Teddie and her friends are realistic, appealing characters. Perfect for fans of family-centered women’s fiction, this book will have special appeal to readers interested in antiques and shabby chic style
