Tristan has an impossible task to complete. For the first time in her life, she will not had in a writing assignment a teacher has assigned to her. Now, the teacher’s at Steeplechase Academy expect that from her brothers and cousins, but not from the straight A student Tristan. How can she possible complete the paper, a biography about someone she never knew, who no one talks about. A paper that needs to be written about her own mother, who went missing the day she was born.
Tristan is being raised in a large home with her father, brothers, aunt, uncle and cousins all under the same roof. When she is given this assignment, she tries in vain to remember any tidbits of information she can recall. Trying to remember anything that has been told to her through the years about her mother. She comes up with nothing, but she senses people know what happened. Murmurs from the people in town, the lack of eye contact and maybe even pity or fear in people’s eyes. Someone knows something, that leads Tristan to a startling discovery and maybe even triggers a mystery of its own about Tristan.
Great mystery, the author did a brilliant job of drawing the reader into the story and I felt sorry for Tristan growing up with all those boys in the house. However, the author helps you realize how important family really is for support and comfort not only in difficult times but every day too. 4 stars.
