“The novels of Phaedra Patrick are good for what ails you! Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone is a charming novel about a dull British jeweler who finds new light in his life when his American niece springs a surprise visit on him. Gemma may only be 16 years old, but she is a catalyst for some much-needed change in Benedict's life and for the entire village. Readers would need a heart of stone to miss the joys of this delightful, feel-good novel. Book clubs are going to be taking a 'shine' to Benedict Stone.”

Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List

“A moving, honest story of friends and family, mistakes that shape our lives, and family bonds broken, with a reminder that forgiveness and restoration is possible through love and binding memories. The characters and the small town of Noon Sun are charming. The rich descriptions made me want to book travel plans and visit immediately, to seek them out and befriend them all.”
— Renee Clark, Book-ish, Cashiers, NC

His life is in desperate need of a jump start--and then a surprise arrives at his door in the form of his audacious teenage niece, Gemma. Reckless and stubborn, she invites herself into Benedict's world and turns his orderly life upside down. But she might just be exactly what he needs to get his life back on track.Filled with colorful characters and irresistible charm, Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone is a luminous reminder of the unbreakable bonds of family, and shows that having someone to embrace life with is always better than standing on your own.
