Publisher's Summary

Twenty-eight-year-old struggling San Francisco artist Anne McFarland is determined to get a one-woman show, even though no one, including herself, believes she can do it. But when she buys a coat at a thrift shop with a key in its pocket, strange, even magical, occurrences begin to unfold, and she is inspired to create her best work ever.

Fifty years earlier, it's 1963, and the coat's original owner, young heiress Sylvia Van Dam, is headed toward a disastrous marriage with a scoundrel. In a split-second reaction she does the unimaginable, which propels her on a trip of self-discovery to nature-filled northern Arizona. When Anne and Sylvia's lives intersect, they are both forced to face their fears - and, in the process, realize their true potential.

Story itself is simplistic and contrived. The plot is weak. But it is easy to follow if you’re looking for something simple to listen to.The performance is well done. There are so many good books out that your time may be better spent on those. Glad I used it just to listen to and pass the time I supposed to spending my time reading it

Not worth time

I only got a quarter way through then contacted customer service to return it. I found it choppy and hard to tell when the character change happened. I didnt find it engaging which was disappointing because the summary sounded fun and interesting.
