Parker climbed her way out of poverty by marrying into one of
Philadelphia’s oldest, wealthiest families. Now
seventy-two years old, she has always felt that her son married
beneath him and has had no contact with her daughter-in-law,
Zoe, since her son, a test pilot, was killed.
Parker lives alone on twenty-eight acres of land she inherited
from her parents in rural Oconee County in SC. Determined to
preserve her property when faced with threat of foreclosure,
Zoe, now in her fifties, has no choice but to turn to her wealthy,
estranged mother-in-law. Katie Parker is Zoe’s only child
and is divorced. Katie’s young daughter has recently
passed away, and she returns to her mother’s home to
heal. She knows enough about her family to be surprised to
find her grandmother living there, too.
old grievances stand between the three women, new challenges
and grave danger cause them to forge a new path together, and
they soon find unexpected bonds forming.
Medlicott had created an entirely new group of characters you’ll
want to spend time with in this warm and powerful novel about
family, acceptance, and forgiveness.
