K. T. Archerabout this book: Who brings a shopping cart to a funeral? The heartless and greedy!
Awarded Editor's and Reader's Choice, The Silver Spoon, book one of three in the Lizzy Wallace series, is a tale of how death effects family members in different ways. Lizzy is overwhelmed as she's caring for a mother who is dying of cancer and a grandmother with Alzheimer's. Unwilling to help, the rest of the family is using their time wisely, taking inventory of what they want to plunder once death arrives.
As life fades from her mother, so does the last ounce of loyalty of her family. Two days following the funeral, the will, which hasn't even been opened yet is being contested by the greedy and Lizzy is being sued for material possessions along with guardianship of her grandmother because she may have some monetary value.
What no one knows is Lizzy's mother had foreseen what her daughter was going to be facing and had already put an ally in her corner...her estranged father.
