Some bury their secrets close to home, others scatter them to the wind and hope they land somewhere far away
Judith Kratt inherited all the Kratt family had to offer-the pie safe, the copper clock, the murder that no one talks about-and she knows in her old bones that it's time to make an inventory of her household and its valuables. But she finds that cataloging the family belongings-as well as their misfortunes-won't contain her family's secrets, not when her wayward sister suddenly returns, determined to expose skeletons that the Kratts had hoped to take to their grave.
Interweaving the present with chilling flashbacks from one fateful evening in 1929, Judith pieces together the influence of her family on their small South Carolina cotton town, learning that the devastating effects of dark family secrets can last a lifetime and beyond.
