Longtime local journalist Andrea Weir Estrada has written her first novel, A Foolish Consistency, crafting a rich, compelling love story that is anything but foolish.

Weir’s complex romance for literate grown ups tells the story of long ago lovers Callie Winwood and Will Tremaine, whose chance meeting in an emergency room re-ignites a 25-year-old passion.

Of course, no one makes the journey into their 40s without carrying along some baggage, and these two are no exception. Will has devoted himself to his two young children, whose mother died tragically two years earlier. Callie’s divorce has left her vulnerable as well.

Their journey toward one another is anything but simple. Just when it seems like they’ll finally earn a happily ever after, they are forced to split when a scandal threatens to unravel their respective families.

A Foolish Consistency is a passionate love story with depth, exploring the emotional damage that grief can cause, as well as the importance of forgiveness, and, ultimately, the joy of redemption.

The book will be available at local stores on September 15. Weir will be signing books at Tecolote Book Shop (1470 E. Valley Rd., Montecito) on September 27 from 3-5 p.m.
