The three Miss Margarets: a novel
An irresistible page-turner in the tradition of Pat Conroy's The Prince of Tieds: Beneath a town's placid surface, and the irreproachable facade of its three leading doyennes, lies an explosive, decades-old secret. Miss Peggy, Dr. Maggie, and Miss Li'l Bit have become icons in Charles Valley, Georgia, a fact they find funny and bewildering Thirty-odd years ago they did something extraordinary, clandestine, and very illegal. That night haunts them still, but they staunchly believe they were the only ones who could right a horrible wrong. Then a stranger's arrival in town and a tragic death open the floodgate of memories for all three women. And Laurel Silence, a young woman who has spent most of her life nursing her alcoholic mother and a huge grudge, is about to put the pieces of the puzzle together and demand to know what happened the night the three Miss Margarets swore their oath of secrecy. Laurel must decide whether to reveal the truth about the three women she was raised to despise, or face her own troubled history and put the dark legacy of the past behind them.

Miss Peggy, Dr. Maggie, and Miss Li'l Bit, friends and confidantes for nearly a lifetime, find it funny and bewildering that they have become icons in Charles Valley, Georgia. Little does the rest of the town know that beneath the irreproachable façades of its three doyennes lies an explosive decades-old secret that is about to be revealed.
Thirty-odd years ago the three Miss Margarets did something extraordinary, clandestine, and very illegal. Although they are haunted by the night that changed their lives, they believe that their crime was simply a matter of righting an egregious wrong. But when a stranger's arrival in town and a tragic death open the floodgate of memory, their loyalty, friendship, and honor are tested in ways they could never have imagined--particularly when they have to contend with Laurel Selene, a young woman who has spent her life nursing an alcoholic mother and a huge grudge. Now Laurel is on the verge of discovering what happened the night the three Miss Margarets swore their oath of secrecy. Once she knows, will she reveal the truth about the three women she was raised to despise? Or will she face her own troubled history and put the dark legacy they all share behind them?
The Three Miss Margarets is an irresistible, page-turning exploration of the past and the myriad ways it exerts a hold on the present.
