Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Judith Kratt inherited all the Kratt family had to offer - the pie safe, the copper clock, the murder that no one talks about - and she knows in her old bones that it's time to make an inventory of her household and its valuables. But she finds that cataloging the family heirlooms can't contain their misfortunes, not when her wayward sister suddenly returns, determined to expose secrets that the Kratts had hoped to take to their grave. Interweaving the present with chilling flashbacks from one fateful evening in 1929, Judith pieces together the influence of her family on their small South Carolina cotton town, learning that the effects of dark family secrets can last for decades." -- Provided by publisher.

    The town of Bound, South Carolina, has a long memory. As does Judith Kratt, an elderly woman who lives in the house where she grew up. There, she's surrounded by the legacy of her once-feared and -revered father, who built and lost a business empire. But as this contemplative novel illuminates, legacy can take a number of forms. Judith's brother, Quincy, skilled at ferreting out people's secrets, was shot and killed when they were both teenagers, and the narrative bounces from the young to the old Judith, as long-held truths about Quincy's murder are revealed to be fiction. And when Judith's sister returns after a decades-long absence from the town she fled after their brother's death, more family secrets begin to come to light. Through this process, Judith remains obsessed with listing and categorizing the family's heirlooms, which, when pieced together, form a larger story. Judith's straitlaced yet forthright nature can be irksome, but her frankness also results in moments of surprising courage and compassion. The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt adeptly catalogs loss, hope, and redemption. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
