A hilarious and touching love story about an unlikely but, on the other hand, perfectly suited couple. As Colleen and Gabriel play out tensions between Yankees and Texans, haves and have-nots, and women and men, a Texas sexual revolution threatens to break out... Colleen Sweeney takes one step closer to commitment when she stores most of her belongings in a mini-warehouse and moves into Gabriel's Houston condo complex, God's Country Club. Gabriel Benedict, a freshly divorced emergency room doctor with wealthy parents in Fort Worth and a name-sake two-year-old son, is definitely Mr. Right, but can Colleen leave her past behind and start a future? Then again, can Gabriel accept her as she is: still on the run from a kinky relationship with a cruise director; responsible for her "residentially challenged" father in Boston; and about to be downsized from her job as a librarian? With a compelling cast of characters, God's Country Club is a sendup of political correctness, class, debutantes, self-improvement strategies, do-gooders, networking, and bachelorette parties-"written with great élan" (Rosellen Brown).
