Description
Only the most peculiar, heartfelt fate could link the star-crossed Ricconni family of New York with the dirt-poor Powells of the Georgia mountains. Little do Ursula Powell and Quentin Ricconni know that a strange and abstract iron sculpture of a Bear will draw them together. They have nothing in common except the power that the sculpture has in both their lives.Commissioned from a then-struggling artist named Richard Ricconni, the sculpture, which now sits in the back yard of a secluded mountain farm, is worth a fortune. When Quentin leaves New York for the small Southern town to reclaim his father's sculpture, he discovers that when it comes to the heart, to destiny, and to fate, the price paid cannot be measured in millions.A page-turning, tear-jerking, and lyrical Southern love story about what happens when two worlds meet.

display_descriptionDirt-poor, sensitive as poets, and proud as kings, the Powell family has lived on a Georgia mountaintop for generations. Then, during the 1960's, young Ursula Powell's father convinces the Tiber family, owners everything in nearby Tiberville, to commission a huge iron sculpture of a bear for the town. Decades later the strange sculpture - rejected by the townspeople and left to rust on the Powell farm - symbolizes a family's failure and thwarted dreams. But, unknown to Ursula, it is now worth such a huge fortune that the artist's embittered son, Quentin Ricconni, is coming to reclaim it . . . and to change everything Ursula believes about the past, the choices that break a heart, and the redeeming powers of art and love.
