On Bernadine Brown's fifty-second birthday she received an unexpected gift—she caught her husband, Leo, cheating with his secretary. She was hurt—angry, too—but she didn't cry woe is me. Nope, she hired herself a top-notch lawyer and ended up with a cool $275 million. Having been raised in the church, she knew that when much is given much is expected, so she asked God to send her a purpose.
The purpose turned out to be a town: Henry Adams, Kansas, one of the last surviving townships founded by freed slaves after the Civil War. The failing town had put itself up for sale on the Internet, so Bernadine bought it.
Trent July is the mayor, and watching the town of his birth slide into debt and foreclosure is about the hardest thing he's ever done. When the buyer comes to town, he's impressed by her vision, strength, and the hope she wants to offer not only to the town and its few remaining residents, but to a handful of kids in desperate need of a second chance.
Not everyone in town wants to get on board though; they don't want change. But Bernadine and Trent, along with his first love, Lily Fontaine, are determined to preserve the town's legacy while ushering in a new era with ties to its unique past and its promising future.

Loved the books! Great characters! Story highlights a great cause for readers with financial independence.
I really enjoyed this story. The characters were likable and I wanted to know more about them and their lives when I finished the book. I work with children in foster care and the juvenile court system so I guess it hit close to home. The only real issues I had with the storyline were: believability-come on, the chances if things happening this way are super slim (but I suppose that is why I read fiction to escape!) and the fact that the ending was so abrupt. I felt like the writer ran out of time suddenly and completed he story in a few lines instead of the few chapters it deserved. That being said, I am buying the next boom in the series and I expect it to be great too!
