Its a wonder to behold what happens when love moves in . . .
Former child star Fiona Hume deserted the movie biz a decade ago--right after she left rehab. She landed in Baltimore, bought a dilapidated old mansion downtown, and hatched dreams of restoring it into a masterpiece, complete with a studio for herself. She would disappear from public view and live an artists life.
That was the plan.
Ten years later, Fionas huge house is filled with junk purchased at thrift stores, haggled over at yard sales, or picked up from the side of the road. Each piece was destined for an art project . . . but all shes got so far is a piece of twine with some antique buttons threaded down its length.
Shes thirty-two years old and still recognizable, but Fionas money has finally run out. Shes gotten pretty desperate, too, and in her desperation shes willing to do almost anything for money. Almost. So it is that she comes to rent out the maids quarters to a local blacksmith named Josia Yeu.
Josia is everything Fiona isnt: gregarious, peaceful, in control without controlling . . . in short, happy. As the light from the maids quarters begins to permeate the dank rooms of Fionas world, something else begins to transform as wellsomething inside Fiona. Something even she can see is beautiful.
