In the future she would be called Rose Franklin. She feels an even stronger connection with him when she learns that his last name, Franklin, is the same one that she has chosen to use after her divorce — her mother's maiden name. When her husband leaves her for a younger woman, Rose Franklin buys a camper and sets off--away from her heartache and anger. It was a man by the name of Ledford Pickering who told me about the Shady Grove Campground, down past the oil rigs and the horse pastures, across the railroad tracks and out into the tree-lined path that opened out on the river like the dreams of some boat captain. Of course, at the time of my arrival I knew nothing of a dead man bearing the same last name as my mother, the same name I would claim for myself.

I knew nothing at all of life and death in West Memphis, Arkansas. Bad luck for campground, she added. From south side, he added, as if I should know what that meant. The format presents a different route than the classic mystery genre. The characters are intriguing, but Lynn plays around racial issues.

Lynn displays in her story that not all stereotypes are correct. He said something to one of the deputies who had joined him, and the two of them laughed quietly while they glanced around nervously. I was on my way southwest, to New Mexico or Arizona, to work as a traveling nurse or maybe even something completely out of my profession like a museum director or a manicurist. Me staring through the window like some hungry orphan. That doesn't affect my rating though. I had taken an extra job on the weekends working a shift in the emergency room and sold some of our furniture to buy our little vacation house on wheels.

Could his death somehow be connected to the ancient slave burial ground that he was researching?

Lucas Boyd and his wife, Rhonda, own the campground, but they got an Asian woman running it. Ledford Pickering was standing close enough to weigh out the details of my situation and was interested enough to think of some solution. It's a book about the ups and downs of life, trust, hope, healing, and second chances. It is a very rare occasion that I start with the first book in a series because I like to get hooked by well-developed characters, history, and writing style. I had no knowledge of a funeral director whose lungs filled with river water and whose heart had just been satisfied. A man offers to pull her camper to Shady Grove, a local campground on the banks of the Mississippi.

Could it somehow be connected to the ancient slave burial ground that he was researching? These are light mysteries with colorful characters. The journey is not to solve the mystery, but to find spiritual freedom. The distinctive setting and eccentric cast of characters who call Shady Grove home are the setup for a great series. The characters are intriguing, but Lynn plays around racial issues. With beautifully crafted prose, Jackie Lynn weaves a tale of outcasts living along a riverbank, who while seeking the truth about a drowning, ultimately find both love and redemption. The two emergency medical technicians were standing at the ambulance taking out what they needed when Ledford walked over to where I was waiting. The mystery itself was somewhat lacking.
