For the last book in Mason's saga, the author effortlessly leaves no stone unturned in the lives of these tormented characters. Mason will take your breath away with this emotional roller coaster -- it's definitely worth the ride.

In 1976 Charlotte abandons two daughters, Connie and Reesy, to
follow Sam, who sells her to the devil to save his own life. After years of leading separate lives, Reesy and Connie reconnect, but while Reesy is eager to find their mother, Connie is still bitter about their abandonment. Reesy eventually finds Charlotte, but will the reunion cost her her husband and sister? Memories and reality collide when the sisters and Charlotte come together. (St. Martin's, Apr., 384 pp., $21.95)
