Back cover copy

"I have to tell you something . . . something that happened a long time ago."

When Ursula Lyman Rowe speaks these words to Faith Fair-child from her sickbed in Aleford, Massachusetts, Faith has no idea what lies in store for her.

It all starts when Ursula's daughter, Pix Miller, Faith's best friend and neighbor, leaves town for her son's wedding. Pix knows Faith and her husband, the Reverend Thomas Fairchild, will keep an eye on the slowly recovering Ursula. But what she and Faith don't know is that the tale Ursula spins over the course of several weeks will reveal an unsolved crime dating back to 1929 and the Great Depression.

Meanwhile, more current mysteries are brewing. The dis-cretionary fund at the church has been pilfered and the Reverend Fairchild is the only person with access to it. And, when Pix meets her in-laws-to-be for the first time, she's in for the surprise of her life. . . .
