Kate is like many people you know. She set out from her small home town to a booming prosperous city in the west to find a new life, only to find it wasn't there. With no prospects out west and the tragic news of her parents' death in a car accident, Kate goes back home. Like Michael Corleone, she thought she could get away but they pulled her back. She arrives to find the small town life she grew up in still pretty much intact. The same people, the same politics, the same relationships she knew in high school. Except much of it isn't, or wasn't really as she thought. Like a well ripened onion, this story peels away the layers and Kate is faced with a far different reality than she thought she knew.
This is an enjoyable and satisfying tale well written by a talented writer and editor. I highly recommend it.

Judith Millar is an accomplished, subtle writer whose first novel is a polished and beautifully constructed tale lightly hung on a mystery story that keeps the reader moving along from the first paragraph. Read it and keep turning the pages to find out how the intriguing plot unfolds, and then find yourself unwrapping more and more layers. It's pitch-perfect and I recommend it wholeheartedly.
