A Passion for Paulina: A Climax Creek Prequel
"Built on Tradition, Moving Toward the Future"
Climax Creek is a small, quaint town situated between Greensboro and Sanford in North Carolina. Bordered by I-85 and three North Carolina state highways, it's occupied by less than sixteen hundred people. Climax Creek is the kind of town where you won't find a Starbucks, but you can get a great cup of coffee from Paulina down at Cool Beans. Watch out for Paulina- she'll talk your ear off if you let her. Down at Phipps Pharmacy, Quinn Phipps has got a cure for whatever might be ailing you. Say the wrong thing to your significant other? Minnie Hughes has got an "apology special" running down at her flower shop- she'll fix you up. Feel the need for some spiritual guidance? Climax Creek has four churches- take you pick. If you're looking for something fancy and pretentious, this isn't the place. But if you're looking for a little Southern comfort, the kind that you can't get out of a bottle, then stop on by.
Coffee shop owner Paulina Gray is the keeper of all the secrets in Climax Creek.. sort of. Famous for her conversational skills, she's a mother figure, friend, and confidante to many of the town's residents. Yet few know how she came to occupy her very special role. She may be well into her sixties, but she's known a love as deep as anyone could imagine. Take a trip back to Christmas 1980, and find out about the life Paulina once lived. As they say, everybody was young once, and Paulina is no exception.
