BACK OF THE BOOK BLURB
(copied from Amazon.com)Gloria Larsen knows only three things about her birth mother: she was over forty, she lived in Rosewood, Nebraska, and she was accused of murder in 1974.
When Gloria is offered a job as a newspaper editor in the small town, she jumps at the opportunity to discover the identity of her birth mother. Digging into the past, she finds a story of the disappearance of a judge's wife and four friends accused of murder. Gloria tracks the now-elderly women to an assisted-living facility. This is Gloria's chance to write the story of a lifetime and finally know her heritage. Even if she can't learn the truth of her origins, she must find out what really happened to Naomi Waterman Talbot.
MY REVIEWSit down, get a good grip, and hang on!!! You are going on one wild ride! This is a first book for me written by G. M. Barlean but I am DEFINITELY in line for more. Gina does a wonderful job of weaving this story and makes you want to keep reading, forget about sleep, housework, cooking meals, etc., just get through this book. There are some very interesting characters, the thorns, mystery and loyalty to friends. Oh, and you know how there is always that one girl who thinks she's the Queen of the school and even her 'friends' in her little 'elite clique' don't like her, well she's in this story too! Highly recommended by me.
