Frances Schultz taps into what she learned during her renovations of her East Hampton house, Bee Cottage --- determining how each area in the house and garden would be used and furnished --- to unravel the question of how a mature, intelligent, successful woman could have made such a mess of her personal life. As she figures out each room over a period of years, Frances finds a new path in life. She comes to learn that, like decorating a home, our lives must adapt to who we are and what we need at different points along the way.
