Faith Bass Darling's Last Garage Sale

Description

When a wealthy woman decides to sell all of her worldly possessions, she unearths the secrets of her family’s past in this charming debut—soon to be a major motion picture starring Catherine Deneuve!

On the last day of the millennium, sassy Faith Bass Darling, the richest old lady in Bass, Texas, decides to have a garage sale. With help from a couple of neighborhood boys, Faith lugs her priceless Louis XV elephant clock, countless Tiffany lamps, and everything else in her nineteenth-century mansion out onto her long, sloping lawn.

Why is a recluse of twenty years suddenly selling off her dearest possessions? Because God told her to.

As the townspeople grab up five generations of heirlooms, everyone drawn to the sale—including Faith’s long-lost daughter—finds that the antiques not only hold family secrets but also inspire some of life’s most important 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?

READERS GUIDE INCLUDED

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 12, 2012 – When Faith Bass Darling hears the voice of God telling her to sell all her possessions because she will die that night, the reclusive heiress drags everything onto the lawn for a garage sale. Her sanity is questionable, but her neighbors opportunism is not. Local antiques dealer Bobbie Blankenship hears about the goings on and calls Faith s estranged daughter, Claudia Jean, to alert her to her mother s strange behavior. Claudia reluctantly returns home and reconnects with deputy sheriff John Jasper Johnson, who tries to help her end the sale and deal with the mother she hasn t seen in 20 years. Faith reflects on her life and her values, from her troubling marriage to Claude, a violent man who married her for her money, to her falling out with Claudia Jean, and the death of her son, Mike, in an accident that changed John Jasper s life. Rutledge, a fifth-generation Texan, paints a colorful portrait of a larger than life Texas matron, but her debut offers nothing new on the story s well-trod themes of Southern racism, old money, and materialism.
