You won't put this one down until the very end: A wealthy, aging matriarch walks to the end of her lane and drops five sealed envelopes in to the mailbox. Thus begins the tale of a family alienated and embittered by past events. You will fall in love with this old gal, but her family is mess. They are brought together in an ill fated meeting that will have you up all night until you reach the shattering conclusion! One of this author's best, in my opinion!
