--- Janson Mancheski (author of The Chemist; Shoot For the Stars)
First of all, let me say that this is a suspenseful and thought provoking book. I mean, it is a generational book, that goes from Olivia to her Mother's secret tale, and usually I do not like this kind of book, but let me say Nancy nailed it, and I never felt lost, She always had her chapters show the date. The secret of her mother comes after she gets a will stating that her Mother left her a home on Lake Michigan and Emeralds. How and where did her mother who led a normal life get these items? So Olivia goes to the house and things begin to happen, that is negative for Olivia, and between her mother's secrets left in the home, the former owner's kin showing up and the grumpy caretaker, the story is a true mystery. If you love a suspense and a good mystery with plots then this is the book for you.
Will you love all of them? No, of course not. What conflict would there be in that? You will hate those you are supposed to hate and love those who deserve it. Nancy has a gift for developing character. Her writing is a thing of beauty, with touching descriptions of the settings that make you feel you are there with the characters. Find a copy. You won't regret it.
