A MILLION DOLLARS IS MISSING. THE NEPHEW IS GREEDY. THE FRIEND IS A SUSPECT. ABIGAIL KNOWS THE TRUTH, BUT SHE'LL NEVER GET THE CHANCE TO TELL... In a story of trust, love and friendship, two unforgettable women find what they've been searching for all their life. This heartwarming May-December friendship is reminiscent of Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes. Abigail Anne Lannigan is at the tail end of her years when she teams up with a free-spirited young woman who moves in across the street. Their unusual friendship comes under suspicion when a million dollars goes missing and a distant relative, claims embezzlement. Abigail knows the truth about the handwritten note but, unfortunately, she'll never get the chance to tell. Told in the timeless tradition of Southern Fiction, The Twelfth Child is rich with emotion, humor and tenderness. 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.
Every time I read a book by Bette Lee Crosby I always wonder why I waited so long to read it. She is a gifted storyteller and has a way of evoking every emotion. I cried, and laughed, and hoped, and got really mad... throughout this novel. I absolutely loved Abigail. She didn't have an easy life, but she was fiesty and strong. And Destiny, bless her heart, she was so sweet and naive. The 2 of them together were perfect "partners in crime." Beautiful story. :)
