Publisher's Summary

Darcy Campbell might have expected life in a small Oklahoma town nestled in the beautiful Ozark foothills to be as idyllic as the scenery. That, however, is not what she finds when she returns to her hometown of Levi after the death of her husband.
One autumn morning, Darcy and her mother, Flora Tucker, are enjoying a cup of coffee in their hundred-year old farmhouse when Darcy gets an urgent telephone call. The contractor who is digging the foundation for their new home insists that Darcy drop everything and come to the building site as quickly as she can. He has found a mysterious object deep in a hand-dug well and he needs Darcy's help in retrieving it.
The ancient, crumbling package pulled from the well contains two items that are as shocking as they are inscrutable. In trying to decipher the meaning of these long-buried objects, Darcy and Flora discover a dark secret from their family's past.
A kidnapping, a brush with death, and a stranger's greed add to the mix. The era of World War I becomes enmeshed with the present day as Darcy and Flora unravel a tangled web of deceit that has ensnared their family.
Volume 3 of the Darcy & Flora cozy mystery series.

Great Listen!

I so love these characters. This is the 3rd book in the series by Blanche Day Manos. It can be listened as a standalone, but has references to events from the previous stories and characters. Michelle Babb did a great job with the various voices and was able to get great emotion into the characters. I found the subtle humor a plus. This story was great, and I loved some of the unexpected twists. Also, I liked that the author kept the details consistent from previous stories. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.
