    Great read! Highly recommended!!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Even though the book is filled with tragedies and heartbreak, it's a compelling story of the consequences of life choices and overcoming them. The author does a great job developing each character, so you can see the point of view through each characters' eyes. I cared so much for the characters, I was sorry to see the book end. I wanted the story extended to see how the generations of charaters completed their life story. I highly recommend this book. It's a great gift to give to book lovers!!

    I do not consider this a good book

    Set in modern day, the family plantation located in Bloodroot, an imaginary location near the "real origins of the Choctaw and Chickasaw delta country" of Jordan Mississippi. China hates her connection to the Old South and its injustices, her memories of childhood summers there still haunt her, so she hasn't been back in years. She wouldn't have agreed to go now, except her mother told her that her legal expertise was needed to keep Great Aunt Tullie out of jail. Tullie Coldwell is a difficult old woman at best, due to a degenerative, progressive, ultimately fatal neurological disease that is hereditary. China must determine if her Great Aunt Tullie is guilty of homicide. The plantation manager has been found dead after receiving a blow to the head from Tullie's cane, the investigation leads to disappearances, deaths, family secrets, and property disputes.both present and past.
    A mystery written by a woman for women to read, I say this because of peppered recipes, and majority of characters are women with only a few evil men to hate. Each chapter begins with a recipe or quotation from herbalist note of local plant and it history.
