DAUGHTER AM I—PAT BERTRAM-KINDLE EDTION.
Mary Stuart has grandparents or had grandparents, but they were murdered and she has inherited their farm. It seems that due to family politics her dad disowned his parents’ years before. Mary discovers a little black book in her grandfather’s possessions and finds a ragtag bunch of former mobsters who Mary takes on and makes friends with –Sounds like a trip down the yellow brick road at first but turns into a rousing adventure to find the hidden gold from a long ago robbery. Their prime nemesis in this case is a gold obsessed murderer following them. The long and short of the story is they find the gold and dispense with the bad guy and end up turning the farm into a working retirement haven for old mobsters.
I found this book to have a really neat concept to it. Most people boo anything to do with mafia or anything criminal. In this case these characters are lovable octogenarians on a last adventure for buried gold and who provide our heroine with insight to what her grandfather was like. Ms. Bertram has written characters you can cheer on and hope the best for. There is a little bit of everything for everyone in DAUGHTER AM I; humor, adventure, insight and a love story when Mary meets Tim. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good road trip story. I GIVE DAUGHTER AM I FIVE GOLD BARS.
