From Joan Medlicott, the nationally bestselling author who created the wonderful world of Covington, comes a heartwarming story about three generations of women who find their way past old hurts and losses to understanding, forgiveness, and love. Winifred 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 she has had no contact with her daughter-in-law, Zoe, since her son was killed in Korea. Zoe Parker lives alone on twenty-eight acres of rural Carolina land that she inherited from her parents. Determined to preserve her property when faced with the threat of foreclosure, Zoe, now in her fifties, has no choice but to turn to her wealthy, estranged mother-in-law. Katie Parker is a young divorcée whose daughter recently passed away. When she returns home to Zoe's land to heal, she knows enough about her mother's history to be surprised to find her grandmother living there, too. Though 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 along the way. Joan Medlicott has created an entirely new group of characters you'll want to spend time with in this warm, rich novel about family, friendship, and where the two meet.… (mere)

rabck from bookstogive; light women's fiction. The three Parkers are elderly Winifred, her son Stephen's widow Zoe and Zoe's divorced daughter Katie, who disabled daughter just died. Due to Winifred's declining health, she moves in with Zoe, although she's been estranged for years. Katie and her grandmother bond, starting to fill in the gaps the estrangement has caused. ( )

It was a little hard to follow for me; I personally felt a little distracted at times. It felt like it was a bit about the color of small-town life, which is a funny thing to talk about. It was, on the whole, calming, though. Sometimes it even made me feel better.

Ingredients:
1 aging widow with hidden illness and secrets aplenty
1 middle-aged widow (daughter-in-law to the aging widow) with plenty of secrets of her own
1 young widow (daughter and granddaughter of the first two widows)with a tragic background

Mix together until a lumpy dough forms. Add a token male hero, a few well-intentioned neighbors, a heinous villain, an I-could-see-it-coming climactic moment. Place in a rural southern US setting, and voila!

This generational story tells of three women, each a product of her upbringing, and what they bring to the lives of each other. Secrets aplenty abound but they aren't given depth. For three women to overcome their stubborness and meld as one family it takes a lot more than these three give to the plot.

I thought Maudie was the best character in the book and she's just a nurse. We learn more about her, her Irish upbringing, and her mam than should be needed for a secondary character.

I think this story has possibilities that needed to be fleshed out and broadened. The writing was okay, the story okay (easy to read but leaving one with a 'so what?' attitude), and that's why I've given it three stars. Okay? ( )
