Agnes Makepeace has always been courageous and strong-minded and on the surface, she couldn’t be more unlike the chilly, reserved Helen Spencer. Agnes knows there is a mystery to her own background and is determined to discover the truth about her past. She believes the key to unlock the secret is held with husband’s employer, Judge Zachary Spencer of Lambert House - a mean-spirited widower and solitary man. Judge Spencer has long neglected his daughter, Helen and notices her even less when he takes a new wife. But he has underestimated both the extent of his daughter’s misery and her determination to enact her revenge. Helen’s new-found confidence causes her to behave in a way that will have a lasting, and shocking impact on both families and, surprisingly, leads to a lifelong friendship with Agnes. Yet it is only when the broodingly silent house on Skirlaugh Rise ceases to hold its breath and deliver the answers that Agnes has been seeking that she can finally find the peace of mind she has always longed for.

We all make many choices in our lives and none of them should be considered wrong choices. At the time we chose our journey's direction with all the knowledge we have at hand. Sometimes that direction ultimately turns out to not be something that we want, so we consider ourselves failures.This book, The Judge's Daughter, shows us through the characters that the choices weren't a mistake, but what you do with those choices is what counts. Wallowing in pity is not a positive step forward for the more difficult choices if acted upon will make us even stronger in the future.How important is heredity when you don't know what yours is? Is it important enough to kill for? Such was the case with the Prescott and McCauley families. They had it all. Infidelity, abortions, drugs, hitmen, spousal abuse, billions of dollars, pedophilia and enough lawyers, judges and politicians to really mix up the gene pool.The Judge's Daughter is an intriguing murder mystery that has more layers than a royal wedding cake including more family skeletons than a Halloween Fun House. Pepper it with a lot dry humor and it makes for an entertaining read. It is a mystery that makes you turn the last page before you discover who is behind the murders and who is whose father and mother.

Before the frenzied modern era of superhighways, television, and the internet, American life was lived in small towns, in places where families knew every neighbor; where the bonds of love and hatred, friendship and feud, were tightly woven across generations. In such a town lived Robert Wheelock. He was soft-spoken, intelligent, Harvard-educated, and seemingly destined from birth for great things. His father, the county judge and owner of the local railroad and electric company, was wealthy and respected. So Robert's own success appeared assured ... until the judge's sudden death dealt a blow to his expectations. In this kaleidoscopic book spanning three decades of American life, Robert Wheelock falls in love with his beautiful cousin and takes on his first clients as a lawyer with his own practice. He fights a series of bitter skirmishes with his stepmother, suffers personal tragedy and loss, and starts down the path of public life and civic duty first blazed by the judge. And then Robert commits an indiscretion that will haunt him for twenty years-an indiscretion that will jeopardize his marriage and his place in the community. The Judge's Daughter is the story of a man's conscience and his capacity for love, set in a time and place that will never exist again, but that will live forever in the American imagination.
