They met as little kids in the DC Riggs Park area and have remained friends for over fifty years though Barbara Cohen lives in Wrightsville, North Carolina while Marilyn Waxman remained in the Washington area. Marilyn informs Barbara that she is back and she needs to see her to discuss what happened to another friend Penny when they were in college. Knowing that it is cancer Barbara agrees to visit her best friend although she is having personal problems with her lover Jon................ Marilyn shocks Barbara when she mentions she will undergo a facelift prior to the experimental cancer treatment. Even more stunning is the secret that Penny had a child before vanishing; the father is either Marilyn¿s famous singing brother Steve or an unknown she apparently met on the ¿Bus Ride to see Steve. Reluctantly Barbara agrees to search for clues that would lead to Penny¿s offspring. As she begins her quest in the old neighborhood she realizes you can never go home, but continues her elusive venture......................... This fine middle age amateur sleuth character study is a well written buddy tale with a cast that makes the ensemble cast especially the lead female friends seem real. The friendship between Marilyn and Barbara serves as the key foundation to an intriguing plot. Barbara¿s inquires begin somewhat late in the novel as she is not convinced she should follow the clues until she realizes her beloved buddy needs to know the truth. With a terrific final twist to the delightful RIGGS PARK, readers will look forward to what comes next from Ellyn Bache................. Harriet Klausner

The price of mental peace for one friend threatens to disrupt the lives of others. When her lifelong best friend asks her to find out what happened to a baby they aren't even sure existed, a woman goes back to their hometown on a quest to uncover long buried secrets. Told in first person with many flashbacks, the plot is quite depressing and unengaging.
