Forensic anthropologist Elizabeth MacPherson heads to Danville, Virginia, to save her brother Bill -- a novice lawyer -- from a charge that could send him to prison … and try to reconcile her parents, who are unaccountably ending their marriage of more than twenty-five years. A group of charming old ladies living in the Home for Confederate Women had hired Bill to sell the antebellum mansion in which they'd lived for decades, insisting that he put everything in his own name and handle the unpleasant business as quietly as possible. But after the sale, the dear ladies are nowhere to be found, the money has been deposited into a numbered account in the Cayman Islands, and, as it turns out, the mansion had already been sold to the Virginia Society for Art and Antiquities as a museum. As her parents demand divorce and the authorities aim for Bill's head, Elizabeth rallies to save the family honour. She follows a twisted trail of bitterness and resentment -- one that leads to a Civil War secret that may be the key to the ugly truth …

I was very busy two weeks ago when I returned this, and planned to get my comments in soon. Now I have a moment, and even after reading the description, I have no memory of this book. Not a real "stick in the mind" story.
