Thanks to Cozy Mystery Review Crew for a copy of the book. This review is my own opinion.
When she arrives at the family inheritance, she is drawn back into memories of dreams and visions and voices that she had experienced since childhood. Memories exhorting her to find the truth; right a decades old wrong.
This tale fascinated and absorbed me. As Meg learns about her maternal family and its history, she also learns about and becomes comfortable with her familial gifts. It's a fascinating journey, that had me captivated. She's at first reluctant, but after a friend gives her a figurative head shake, she realizes and accepts that this is something she needs to embrace. Moore has written Meg's coming to terms with her abilities masterfully.
Moore's story takes her readers along many pathways and side roads before reaching destination. It includes a trip to a better understanding of her own mother by means of a journal. A letter. And an unresolved mystery. The experience was spell-binding; it made the book one that I was loathe to put down. I highly recommend it!
[Many thanks to the author for the opportunity to read an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is my honest review, the opinions expressed herein are entirely my own. ]
Meg Miller is a retired widow who finds out that she has inherited a ranch from an uncle she had never heard of. Her mother had died many years before but had never talked about her family. Meg, with the encouragement of her daughter and friend, decides to visit the ranch in hopes of finding out more about her mother. While there, she meets the caretakers of the ranch, Petra and Javier, who immediately become friends.
The mystery referred to in the title happened before Meg was born but had never been addressed by the family. Ophelia, a relative of Petra’s, died from what was thought to be an accident and buried before anyone knew she was dead. By reading her mother’s journal, which she found on the ranch, Meg was able to find out what really happened to Ophelia as well as what caused her mother’s estrangement from her family.
I read this book in two days; it was hard to put down! I liked the characters and the setting was easy to picture through the author’s description. Besides the mystery, there is also Meg’s emotional journey into her mother’s history. Meg carried guilt about her resentment of her mother and is able, through the journal, to understand her mother and comes to term with her mother’s suicide.
I have not read any of Ms. Moore’s books, but I intend to. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read!
