Follow one charming New York couple – glamorous interior designer Olivia Ritchie and her husband Nicholas, a true southern gentleman from Charleston – as they are swept up into the world of the ultra-rich and travel the globe with a cast of zany eccentrics over one tumultuous, hot summer, and find themselves pondering the next step of their lives. This is a story of how plans evolve and lives change in unexpected ways, how even those who have everything are looking for something more to fulfill them and even the most successful can often struggle to get things together. It asks the ultimate question: can money buy happiness?
Litchfield Books and CLASS are also hosting a sold-out Moveable Feast at the Ocean Club, Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach from 11 AM-1 PM; and a book signing at Litchfield Books in Fresh Market Commons from 3-4:30 PM.
