Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Nine people have gathered for the reading of Aurore Gerritsen's will. Some are family, others are strangers. But all will have their futures changed forever when a lifetime of secrets is finally revealed.
Aurore Gerritsen left clear instructions: her will is to be read over a four-day period at her summer cottage on a small Louisiana island. Those who don't stay will forfeit their inheritance. With the vast fortune of Gulf Coast Shipping at stake, no one will take that risk.
Tensions rise as Aurore's lawyer dispenses small bequests, each designed to expose the matriarch's well-kept secrets. Longtime loyalties are jeopardized and shocking new alliances are formed as the family feels the sands of belief shifting beneath their feet.
As a hurricane approaches and survival itself is threatened, the fourth day dawns and everyone waits for the final truth to be revealed.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1997-05-15)

This sequel to Iron Lace (Mira, 1996) begins as Aurore Gerritsen's family is called together for the reading of her will. Generations of prejudice and discrimination committed by and against this unlikely assortment of characters is brought out into the open during the four days they're forced to spend together. More a family saga than a romance, this novel features a multilayered plot, vivid descriptions, and a keen sense of place and time. Although this is a stand-alone story, read Iron Lace first. Richards's Woman Without a Name (Silhouette, 1996) is a 1997 Rita finalist in the Romantic Suspense category. She lives in Ohio. (SM)
