Abstract:

When celebrated and respected agent Fritz Hudson passes away, he leaves a trail of Hollywood glory in his wake and two separate families who never knew the other existed. Allie and Des Hudson are products of Fritz's first marriage to Honora, a beautiful but troubled starlet whose life ended tragically. As his relationship with Honora unraveled, Fritz was falling in love on the Delaware Bay with New Age hippie Susa Prattbut -- but while Fritz loved Susa with everything he had and fathered daughter Cara with her, he never quite managed to come clean about his West Coast family.Now Fritz is gone, and the three sisters are brought together under strange circumstances: there's a large inheritance to be had, one that could save Allie from her ever-deepening debt following a disastrous divorce; allow Des to open a rescue shelter for abused and wounded animals; and give Cara a fresh start after her husband left her for her best friend; but only if the sisters upend their lives and work together to restore an old theater that was Fritz's obsession growing up in his small hometown in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains. Will the sisters come together to turn their fathers dream into a reality and will they come away with far more than they bargained for?
