Book Description

28 Sep 2009
For most of us, our family tree is a definite lineage, tracing back into history many generations. And so too was Michael Kingsbury's. Or at least he thought. That was until he received a letter his grandmother had written nearly fifty years earlier. That letter, and a bit of insight from a local historian, sets Michael on a quest to discover just why his true grandfather was murdered. What he finds, however, is not simply an answer to a two-generation old mystery, but a horrendous injustice that put an innocent man to death. Underlying this story is a tale of love taken away and an affair a woman wanted so much to keep hidden that she withheld evidence to protect her secret - even if it meant someone would die. What Michael discovers will shed new light on his own family and ultimately liberate another from three generations of pain and suffering.

3.0 out of 5 stars Family History set in Humbolt, Kansas 31 Dec 2011
By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has all the makings of a good family history mystery. There is a letter, a diary and a murder to investigate. Michael is the eldest son of Andrew Kingsbury and receives a letter written more than 50 years before that changes who he thought he was.

This book is good although I found it took too long to get to the main part of the story after intially setting the scene. There is a lot of information held in the book but I wanted to know what the letter said and what had happened in those depression years back in the 1930's in a quiet community outside Kansas. However the pace of the book really picks up and the second half of the book had me engaged with the farming community in Humbolt, gave me a picture of what it was like for those threatened with the loss of their livelihood's and gave some indication of how a woman under strain could bring about changes in her life.

Emily Kingsbury's story is a complex one, one which tells us about the emotional upheaval but leaves it up to the reader to join the dots to connect her actions to them. Michael Kingsbury uses the archived newspapers and local people including long-forgotton cousins to discover what happened all those years ago.
