The Curiosities by Susan Gloss Nell Parker has a PhD in Art History, a loving husband named Josh, and a home in Madison, Wisconsin. Nell's heart is still reeling from the tragic way they lost the one baby they managed to conceive. Josh urges Nell to apply for jobs, believing his wife needs something else to focus on. Nell finds an ad seeking a director for a new non-profit called the Mansion Hill Artists' Colony. The colony is the brainchild of the late, unconventional society dame Betsy Barrett, who left behind her vast fortune to establish an artist-in-residency program to be run out of her lakeside mansion. Despite the drama that soon erupts, Nell finds something akin to a family among the members of the creative community at the mansion. And when her attraction to one of the artists begins to heat up, Nell is forced to decide what will bring her greater joy - the creative, inspired wold she's created, or the familiar but increasingly fragile one of her marriage.
