Unemployed and frustrated in 1932, Addie Sumner stumbles across a scheme to get rich-or less poor-quickly. If she can just locate a lost painting by renowned but reclusive artist Armstrong Perzie, she'll be able to sell it for enough profit to make her money problems a distant memory. But once Addie and her friend, Zep Decker, find Perzie and learn of his tragic history, the search for the painting proves to be more challenging-and potentially more rewarding-than either of them had expected. Can Addie and Zep reunite a broken family and give the drunken old artist a renewed will to create, all while making a tidy profit for themselves? Addie Sumner is a witty, fast-paced ride that packs an unexpected emotional wallop.
