The Three Miss Margarets
A NovelBook - 2003
An irresistible page-turner in the tradition of Pat Conroy's The Prince of Tieds: Beneath a town's placid surface, and the irreproachable facade of its three leading doyennes, lies an explosive, decades-old secret. Miss Peggy, Dr. Maggie, and Miss Li'l Bit have become icons in Charles Valley, Georgia, a fact they find funny and bewildering Thirty-odd years ago they did something extraordinary, clandestine, and very illegal. That night haunts them still, but they staunchly believe they were the only ones who could right a horrible wrong. Then a stranger's arrival in town and a tragic death open the floodgate of memories for all three women. And Laurel Silence, a young woman who has spent most of her life nursing her alcoholic mother and a huge grudge, is about to put the pieces of the puzzle together and demand to know what happened the night the three Miss Margarets swore their oath of secrecy. Laurel must decide whether to reveal the truth about the three women she was raised to despise, or face her own troubled history and put the dark legacy of the past behind them.
