The Twelfth Child
An uplifting tale of trust, love and friendship from a USA Today Bestselling Author of Women's Fiction...

Papa wasn't someone who'd flat out kill a person, but he surely knew how to destroy a woman from the inside...a slice of spirit, a piece of pride, a chunk of heart, until one day there's nothing left but a walking around shell to do the cooking and laundry...thus begins the story of Abigail Anne Lannigan, a willful daughter determined to overcome the past.

Leaving the Shenandoah Valley of the early 1900's behind, Abigail finds a way to survive in a world of joblessness and speakeasy's. Now, at the tail end of her years, her best friend is accused of embezzling one million dollars and Abigail is helpless to save her. She knows the truth of what happened, but will never have the chance to tell.

Reminiscent of Fannie Flagg's "Fried Green Tomatoes" the May-December friendship of these two unforgettable women is sure to settle in the soft spot of your heart.

The Twelfth Child, told in the timeless tradition of Southern Fiction, is a novel rich with emotion, humor and tenderness. A Historical Mystery set in the 20th Century, this is a story of love, friendship and one woman's struggle to survive America's Great Depression.

This Award-Winning book is the recipient of the FPA President's Book Award Silver Medal and the Royal Palm Literary Award for Women's Fiction.

About the Author

Bette Lee Crosby
USA Bestselling Author

USA Today Bestselling Author and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby brings the wit and wisdom of her Southern Mama to works of fiction—the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away.

“Storytelling is in my blood,” Crosby laughingly admits, “My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write.”

Crosby’s work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then-unpublished manuscript. Since then, she has gone on to win another twenty literary awards, including the Royal Palm Literary Award, The Reviewer’s Choice Award, the FPA President’s Book Award Gold Medal, and the Reader’s Favorite International Book Award Gold Medal. Her most recent release is “Beyond Betrayal”, the story of a woman who loses everything, including her will to live. Before she can move on, she has to accept that an unusual friendship can bring happiness and open the door to rebuilding her life.
