On the Right Side of a Dream
by Sheila Williams

From the back cover of the 2005 trade paperback first edition (One World Books):

What are you supposed to do with a restored spirit? Eventually, I got some answers. I just didn’t expect to get so many.


When Juanita Lewis arrived in Paper Moon, Montana, courtesy of a Greyhound bus, she was just looking for a brief respite. Instead, she found a home, friends, and a man to love. But this leave-your-attitude-by-the-door woman made a promise to herself—one that she intends to keep. Now that she’s got a place to come back to, Juanita wants to see the world.

A trip out West with her eccentric trucker friend, Peaches, leads to a cooking stint at a new age spa for skinny celebrities. Crazy, but it’s here that Juanita decides to take her talent for cooking to a new level ... and make it her dream. She also learns something about life: It does turn out the way you planned it—just be ready to change the plan a few times along the way.

Just as Juanita’s journey begins, she’s called back to Paper Moon, having inherited an old, slightly haunted B&B, as well as a mountain of decisions. There’s her self-centered, irresponsible daughter, insisting that she get some sense and come back home to Columbus, and a son who’s doing things Juanita can’t bear to think about. So how does a middle-aged black woman from the projects follow her heart when it’s leading in so many different directions?

By asking the right questions, then listening with her soul.
