This is a character study mystery. Lisa Newberry is recently widowed and a victim of mugging. She is struggling with depression. She finds what she thinks is going to be a universal panacea. That is when her real troubles begin.
Lisa Newberry’s depression is well portrayed. Sadly depression (no pun intended) afflicts an enormous number of people and is often mis-diagnosed or ignored. Lisa’s trials with hope are in themselves depressing. This is not a light hearted book.
Ms. Collins does a nice job depicting the conflicted relationship Lisa has with her mother. The mystery is well done and the characters are clearly portrayed.
