    Story
    "Earlier book by writer of Southern Sisters series."

    This is a book by an author much more famous for her five-book series, The Southern Sisters mysteries, now available through audible.com as well. This book may have been written earlier. It involves a family coming together for the funeral and burial of one of its own. The family has many secrets involving several generations of the family, with the current members able at times to see deceased family members as if they are still there, commenting on the current events. This book is rich in southern ambiance, seemingly influenced by such writers as Carson McCullers. An interesting book, but the Southern Sisters mysteries are much better.
