This is an emotional present that is tied to a mysterious past. Millie's Grandmother in a moment of lucid thought drops a hint about her Mother and her ties to a wealth family. Ben feels responsible for his Mother's mistakes and wants to make amends, both set off on a journey to make things right.
I think this book is set in a perfect place where Southern charm and old money play a big part to this story. Millie is a devoted Granddaughter determined to find out who her Grandmother's father is and if there really is a diary with a treasure map. Ben is a responsible honest man who is paying for his Mother's faults. Both of them are strong characters with good qualities.
This is a good story of family, faith, mystery and intrique.
