This book by Jean Reynolds Page is about family relationships. Roy Vines married Rosalind against his family's wishes, thus he severed his ties with them. He lived a simple, normal family life with daughters Lola and Janie Ray until Rosalind got diagnosed with a serious illness. Now he decided to go back to his family to ask for some money to help with the medical expenses. Lola and Janie Ray have always thought that they don't have any living paternal relatives.
Is it the right decision? What would his politically ambitious twin Mont ask in return for some money? What about his parents? Will his return stir up some family secrets?
The author will keep you reading to the end which leave us a little bit hanging. Otherwise, it is a good, clean book about family, appropriate for young readers as well.
