Carson is dying. Elaine brings her husband home to die and comes face to face with her estranged mother-in-law, a woman who has refused to speak to her for twenty years.I should have known what I was going to get with a cover like this one. The cover shows two pairs of women’s legs in rolled-up pants, hanging out of a canoe, with a book in their laps. The story, of course, has absolutely nothing to do with canoes or reading at all, but the cover photo does foretell that the story inside will be a comfortable tale of women’s fiction, a story you might like to read with your pants rolled up and your legs hanging over the edge of a canoe.I did know what I was going to get after reading nothing more than chapter one. It is that predictable.Nothing wrong with that. Just don’t go into this book expecting anything more.
