It can only take a moment to change your life and that is what happened to two young children, Lou Cardinal and her younger brother, Oz.
While in the car with their parents one day, they were involved in a car accident. Their father was killed and the mother left in a catatonic state. Their mother did everything she possibly could during the accident to protect the children from being injured.
Now the children and the mother were going to live with their great-grandmother on her farm in Virginia. Compared to living in New York, this was a drastic change. The nurse who accompanied them on the trip started to mention her "demands" to the great-grandmother. It did not take long for the great-grandmother to tell the nurse that she was not needed. It would surely take the children some getting "used to" and little by little, that is what they did. The cows had to be milked and the food came from the farm - not the local store.
When a corporation wanted to buy the great-grandmother's land, she wanted no part of it. It soon turns into an exciting court battle.
What happens to the land and the children?
David Baldacci is known for writing many mystery books. This one is not a mystery and is quite different compared to any other books he has written. When an author can "cross over" and write a book completely different from anything he has done in the past, it goes to show that he has the skill and expertise to be a versatile writer, which is something that many authors cannot do. Mr. Baldacci definitely shows his writing talent with this book. The one thing I became aware of while listening to this audio CD is how very descriptive his words come across. The listener really gets a good idea of how everything looked and could picture in their mind exactly what he was talking about. The reader, Nora Lana, does an excellent job in portraying all the emotion that is taking place throughout this audio CD. This is a captivating story and one that you will enjoy. Be prepared for a big surprise at the end!
