The Swindler's Daughter


As a child Lillian Doyle always thought her father was dead. At least that is what her mother had told her. So when she receives word that her father has died and left her his legacy, she travels to Georgia to claim what he has left her. With the intention to sell the house and the business her father has left to her, she is confronted with a family she did not know she had. 

Stephania McGee has written such an interesting story about rural life in 1912. Not only is Lillian surprised by the fact that her father had only just died, but the implications concerning her inheritance. Taking her life in a direction she never could have dreamed of. The characters and dialogue were well developed and the faith element was so enlightening, believing that God knows the plan He wishes us to follow. Even when we sometimes resist.

An intriguing mystery with a romance that blossoms with Jonah. There is life and faith, a bit of danger, family and a realization of independence as one matures.
