About the Author:

Lynda Rutledge, a fifth-generation Texan, has petted baby rhinos, snorkeled with endangered turtles, and dodged hurricanes as a freelance journalist. Her work has appeared in national and international publications such as the Chicago Tribune and Poets & Writers. Her fiction has won fellowships and awards from the Illinois Arts Council, the Writers’ League of Texas, the Ragdale Foundation, and the Atlantic Center for the Arts, among others. She and her husband live outside Austin.  This is her debut novel.


On the last day of the millennium, sassy Faith Bass Darling decides to have a garage sale. Why is the richest lady in Bass, Texas, a recluse for twenty years, suddenly selling off her worldly possessions? As the townspeople grab up the heirlooms, and the antiques reveal their own secret stories, a cast of characters appears to witness the sale or try to stop it. Before the day is over, they'll all examine their roles in the Bass family saga, as well as some of life's most imponderable questions: Do our possessions possess us? What are we without our memories? Is there life after death or second chances here on earth? And is Faith "really "selling that Tiffany lamp for $1?
