Margaret lost her husband and needed to find at least one of her many siblings to be added as a beneficiary for her estate.
Finding her siblings was quite difficult because they all were sent to different homes since their father abandoned them and their mother couldn’t take care of them.
While cleaning out her husband’s desk drawers, Margaret finds the name of an investigator, Tom Bateman, who did some work for Albert twenty-four years ago. Little did Margaret know that he had hired Mr. Bateman to look for Margaret's family.
Tom agrees to continue looking for Margaret’s family after all these years even though it is something Margaret is worried about.
Margaret is reluctant to go back to Coal Creek because of her horrible childhood and possible secrets that were never revealed.
Tom turned out to be a wonderful companion and investigator. Margaret had some hope that he would help her find her siblings especially since he found Caldonia who was like a second mother to Margaret and her siblings.
I couldn’t stop reading because I wanted to find out what Tom and Margaret would uncover and if they would find any of her siblings.
WHEN I LAST SAW YOU is another gem from Bette Lee Crosby.
It is a beautiful read filled with the love of family and hope, but some heartbreaking situations as well.
You will not be disappointed in Ms. Crosby’s WHEN I LAST SAW YOU.
If you need something cozy and comforting, make this book your next read.
The characters and the story stayed with me long after I was done reading. 5/5
