This is one of my favorite of the MacPherson mysteries! It has it all. Elizabeth is back from England and attempting to save her long-suffering brother from jail, while at the same time, trying to stop her parents from divorcing. Now, that's all well and good, but the real story, the fun, comes with the group of charming old ladies who live in the Home for Confederate Women take over the story.
Not great literature, folks, but a darn funny break from all the heavy reading. I wish this series had gone on for many more years.
