About the Book:

Lily Higgins Beausoleil, respected mother, grandmother, bank employee and upstanding citizen of bucolic Gold Flume, has passed. A suicide no one will mention. Now the grieving family and town is turned upside down as her secret life is slowly uncovered.

Joanne Greenberg, renowned author of the classic, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, spins an intriguing tale of family, betrayal, false appearances, and a stained family legacy in this, her 20th novel.
