Last Lessons of Summer (Audio Cassette) (Unabridged)
Last Lessons of Summer - Audio Cassette - Unabridged Author:Margaret Maron, Kate Forbes (Narrator) Amy Steadman is the young heiress of a prosperous children's book publishing franchise in New York. After her grandmother is murdered, apparently in a botched robbery, Amy goes to North Carolina to clean out the family home. But as she sorts through dusty files and boxes, she is haunted by the memory of her mother's suicide, which appare... more »ntly happened here when Amy was only three.
This is more of a character study than a real mystery, but I for one didn't fully anticipate all the twists and turns. It kept me up most of the night because I found the characters and their development compelling and credible. What really made this story was the complexity of the characters and relationships, especially Amy's slow realization of exactly who her grandparents really were. The way various characters changed and grew was believable. I have read all of Maron's novels and this is a worthy addition.
