The letter waits in a book, in a box, in an attic, in an old house in Lambert, South Carolina. It's waiting for Candice Miller. When Candice finds the letter, she isn't sure she should read it. It's addressed to her grandmother, after all, who left Lambert in a cloud of shame. But the letter describes a young woman named Siobhan Washington. An injustice that happened decades ago. A mystery enfolding the letter-writer. And the fortune that awaits the person who solves the puzzle. Grandma tried and failed. But now Candice has another chance.

It’s interesting that there are 21 reviews of this book, but I could only access two. It’s an excellent historical fiction story about civil rights, BUT, to piggyback a gay perspective on civil rights is just wrong. I will be returning the book.

This is a wonderful love story. Very heart touching. Suggest how families should be intentional with legacy.

I love the strength of family in the Dare series. I would like to see fewer thoughts regarding sexual encounters.
