Hazel Hartabout this book: FAMILY HISTORY is a story of small town rivalries that blossom when Crystal Sands Marshall, forty, finds her older sister unconscious with rope burns on her neck in her locked home. Iris Sands, fifty-seven, has not stepped foot off the family property in five years.
The townspeople of Sands City, Kansas, don't care much for the last survivors of one of the town's founding families. Gossips say Iris Sands, who hasn't left the family home since her mother's death in a fire five years before, probably murdered her mother, and the sheriff let her get away with it. They detest the younger sister, Crystal Sands Marshall, an aloof divorcee who has always acted like she was better than everyone. When Crystal finds Iris unconscious with rope burns on her neck, lifelong rival Melissa Tarp, fuels the rumor that Crystal must have done it. Who else would risk getting close to Iris and the shotgun she aims at uninvited visitors while ordering them to skedaddle? Crystal, who fears her sister has attempted suicide, is shocked when she realizes people are insisting the sheriff arrest her. Can she prove her innocence to people who have already passed judgment on her? Can the truth set Crystal free?
