Althea Bell is still heartbroken by her mother's tragic, premature death - and tormented by the last, frantic words she whispered into young Althea's ear: Wait for her. For the honeysuckle girl. She'll find you, I think, but if she doesn't, you find her.
Adrift ever since, Althea is now fresh out of rehab and returning to her family home in Mobile, Alabama, determined to reconnect with her estranged, ailing father. While Althea doesn't expect him, or her politically ambitious brother, to welcome her with open arms, she's not prepared for the chilling revelation of a grim, long-buried family secret. Fragile and desperate, Althea escapes with an old flame to uncover the truth about her lineage. Drawn deeper into her ancestors' lives, Althea begins to unearth their disturbing history...and the part she's meant to play in it.
Gripping and visceral, this unforgettable debut delves straight into the heart of dark family secrets and into one woman's emotional journey to save herself from a sinister inheritance.

Wow! What a great story. It was perfect!
The writing, the story, storylines, the pacing....the narration (if you listen the audiobook)...everything is just perfect about this book. If you love Where the Crawdads Sing, you'll love this book. Both are into my All-Time-Favorite Books. I couldn't stop listening and reading this book. It's like joining the journey of finding the treasure in a treasure map. I join in putting the pieces of the story and mystery. And it's a race against time. The story is heartbreakingly emotional as the main character digs deeper into the mystery. The truth was a heartbreaking one. This book is a great find for me. A MUST READ!
