It was a smooth read with some great unexpected turns along the way. Teaches the importance of motherhood and the special role a mother has in a child's life, no matter what. Also a little brutal in parts.

This book was based on an adopted child that searches for his biological mother as an adult. It was unexpected to the Californian Veterinarian to find back in Oklahoma, that his mother was murdered, the adoption clearly beyond her control. Get to know the town personalities while you investigate this murder mystery of an orphan. In the end she was murdered by an unexpected character in the book. Just when it seems so obvious who the killer seems to be-a confession gives light to the true killer. There actually is a lot of death in this book, but that is not what I took from it. Topics include: Small Towns, Murders, suicides, The Good-Ol-Boy-Network, adoption, love and motherhood.
