 The Butler family has been put through their fair share of trials but, when a family secret is exposed, the entire family is sent reeling. Althea is the oldest sister and mother figure to her siblings since their mother passed away. Althea is known for her strong will and her siblings both appreciate and fear her. However, the family is stunned when Althea and her husband, Proctor is arrested for committing fraud. Their family goes from being well-respected icons in the community to being treated as public enemy number one. 

Her sisters, Viola and Lillian, are still trying to come to terms with the scandal. They have to step in and help care for Althea's two teenage daughters. Will the Butler family be able to come to terms with Althea's crimes and begin to heal?

I thought this novel was going to be filled with drama and dramatic twists. Instead, it felt like a cozy read where nothing happened. Page after page, I felt like the story kept dragging with little to add to the story other than Althea is in prison, her daughters miss their family, and the sisters have no idea how to manage the situation. I wish the author spent more time explaining their crimes and their motivation behind it.
