In the fourth and final book of The O’Shaughnessy Chronicles, septuagenarian Catherine O’Shaughnessy spends her days tending her English cottage garden and basking in memories of lost loved ones. If only her son, Bill, wouldn’t worry so much about her living alone. His concerns seem well-founded, however, when Catherine starts receiving mysterious late-night phone calls and a neighbor sees a shadowy figure stalking her property. Who is trying to frighten her? Adding to Catherine’s woes, she receives some troubling news about her sister, Ruby. Did a long-ago mean-spirited act by Ruby cause Catherine to lose her one chance at happiness? Some beloved friends re-enter Catherine’s life, and she is confronted with several choices for her future. Could she start a new life—even a new business—when most people have settled into retirement? And could a mutual love of rhubarb strawberry pie be the basis of a new friendship over a memorable Strawberry Summer?
