Travel writer Julia Sullivan lives life in fast-forward. She jet sets to Europe and the Caribbean with barely a moment to blink or sleep. But too many mishaps and missed deadlines have Julia on the verge of being fired.
With a stern warning, and unemployment looming, she’s offered one last chance to rescue her career. Julia embarks on an unlikely journey to the ‘Heart of Dixie’—Eufaula, Alabama—home to magnificent mansions, sweet tea, and the annual Pilgrimage.
Julia arrives, soon charmed by the lovely city and her handsome host, but her stay is marred by a shocking discovery. Can Julia’s story save her career, Eufaula, and the annual Pilgrimage?

From the Author
Ms. Clark uses her own experience to write her novels, and much like the main character Julia in ‘Dancing Naked in Dixie’ she was drawn to the charm of the Deep South and made the move from New York state to Mobile, Alabama 10 years ago.
“There is so much to love about my ‘new’ home. The people are friendly and welcoming, they are fiercely proud of their heritage and history, and have a long-standing belief in the importance of church, family, and community.
I wanted to take some of my own experiences, insert them into Julia’s life, and watch how she grows and changes as a result. The fun of this storyline involves Julia discovering how wrong she was about the Deep South. It’s a life-changing experience for her. It’s my hope that readers feel that Dixie honors and celebrates cultural differences.”
