Where there's a will...there's a beneficiary
After a lifetime spent scrubbing and mending for others, Ana Mae Futrell passes away. Her two sisters and brother return to bury the older sister they haven't thought about in years. They didn't know she'd won big on a lottery ticket. Or that she had a son. But back to the money--Ana Mae's millions will go only to the person who can interpret the clues she's left behind in a quilt. Should they all fail, the fortune goes to Ana Mae's cats--and a reverend with whom she shared a special relationship. Now, with bills to pay, marriages on the line, and secrets ready to spill, the race to win begins. And Ana Mae's siblings find there's more at stake than money, as they learn a little something about Ana Mae--and about each other!
"Ana Mae’s kin offered some much-needed entertainment in the town. While many who showed up at the wake wondered about Ana Mae’s brother, the homosexual who lived in San Francisco and had the nerve to put it in the newspaper so everybody would know, just as many others wanted to know whatever happened to the two sisters. Nobody had seen skin or teeth of either of them for nigh on about twenty years, though Ana Mae always talked about them like they just ran out to get a pack of cigarettes or some milk from the Day-Ree Mart.
And as at wakes all over the place, some people just wanted to see who all else was there.
Ana Mae was so good at keeping secrets, not even her best friend knew about that Howard thing.
Though she was one of the biggest gossips in town, Rosalee Jenkins prided herself on being able to keep a secret when it mattered. It hurt her that Ana Mae hadn’t confided in her about this son of hers. So at Ana Mae’s wake, Rosaless stood near the casket and fussed at her friend.
'I’m mad at you for dying, Ana Mae. And I’m mad at you for not telling me about that boy.'
'She can’t hear you, you know Sister Rosalee.'
