In her late fifties, former championship jockey Nealy Clay Littletree visits her daughter Emmie Coleman at Blue Diamond Farms. Seeing that things are not quite up to snuff, Nealy tries rejuvenating the farm, of which she and her daughter each own half. But when a debilitating illness strikes Emmie, Nealy and her husband Hatch begin managing the farm on their own.
Fans of Ms. Michaels will enjoy this final chapter in the tale of these enigmatic family members. Deep-seated emotional angst highlights the depth of the main characters as they seek to reestablish their relationships with one another. The only drawback is that those unfamiliar with the previous novels in this series may be slightly confused. (Oct., 304 pp., $24.00)
