Publisher's Description

Four headstrong siblings must satisfy their father's dying demands--or risk losing his fortune. Let the clash of wills begin.

Charleston blue blood Clayton Wilcott "got religion" late in life; so late, it turns out his kids never took to it. So he's left a provisional will delivered in a highly unorthodox way.

Now they're going to have to honor Daddy's commandments from beyond the grave--for a full year--or be cut off from their substantial inheritances.

The scent of wisteria lingers in the air as the four spoiled Wilcotts battle for their birthright. Told in Denise Hildreth's trademark blend of humor and heart, this Southern tale is about learning to love, learning to live, and learning to bend.

    LOVED IT!! I haven't been this excited about a book in a long time. This was a book that told a story about four siblings that must follow their fathers wishes if they want to inherit all his riches. We can see throughout the story that this is a decision that all humans must make in regards to following God's desire for salvation for us.
    I love books like this because it doesn't just tell a entertaining story, it makes the reader think.
    This would wonderful for a book club discussion group.

    Four self absorbed and spoiled rich siblings are waiting to find out what their father has left them in their will. When they hear the stipulations that he has placed on their inheritance, they are all outraged to find that they will have to completely change their lives for an entire year and do as instructed if they want to be eligible to find out what he has left them. With the stakes being so high, they plunge into this new year of their lives and in the process enormous changes take place. How will the year end?

    This book has been out for several years but I just finished reading it. I must say that I am completely impressed. If you have read many of my recent reviews you will know that I have been somewhat disappointed with several of the new offerings in the Christian fiction market. They just seem to be making lip service to God and do not make a real impact for Christianity at all. This book is different.

    Here you have a fantastic tale of pain, remorse, greed, desire, selfishness, heartache and redemption that will keep you captivated and intrigued from page one. All four siblings are spotlighted with a close-up description of their choices and actions throughout that year. The ending will keep you glued to your seat and is completely satisfying. The story is great—the spiritual lessons are even greater. This is one book that truly provides a great story while teaching a valuable spiritual lesson as well. If, like me, you find yourself tired of the contrived and false plots of so many of the new books, do yourself a favor and read this one. You won’t be disappointed.

    I started this book one Saturday morning as I sat in the doctors office awaiting the opportunity to be seen. This book made the three hours that I had to wait with people coughing and sniffling all around me rather painless. The plot could be compared to that of the Ultimate Gift as the book is about four siblings who have to complete a task in order to inherit their fathers 1 billion dollar fortune. The journey draws you into the life of four self-centered people, whom you will immediately find similarities with, as they begin to experience life change. I ended up finishing this book late Saturday night and Im pretty sure from a little over halfway through till the end of the book, there must have been something in my eyes because I couldnt seem to keep them from watering. This is one of the few books that Ive ever read that I consumed the entire thing in one day.

    Life as Elizabeth, Jeffery, Mary Catherine and Will know it is about to be over after they are read the terms of their fathers will. Elijah Clayton Wilcott wants them to do the unthinkable for a while year!! All the children think he has got to be kidding. This had to be some extreme joke. Not!! No money for any of the children that do not comply with their late fathers wishes. They cant believe their father would do this to them. Who else could they talk to? There had to be a way around these demands so they could get the money now. Each one was determined to find that way on their own.Denise says this about herself The one thing I believe the Lord has gifted me to do is to take the human relationship and strip it down to the place we all live:. She does this so well. Its very true with this book and the others I have read by her. One the surface this seems like a light hearted fun book a no brainer. But after reading a few chapters I felt that Denise had a way of pirecing my heart and mind as I read parts of this story I started to feel uncomfortable as the Wilcott children struggled with the situations they found themselves in. I found myself searching my soul, my motives, hurts in my life and the lives of others around me. I walked away from this book knowing that in the middle of the stuff of life, (the good, bad, and the ugly). God sets us up for victory. Denise says He surrounds each of us with everything necessary to winEach of us will taste life. Its inevitable. But each of us has been given every necessary tool for our refining, our taming, our potential:. In the end its a matter of our will. Will we trust God with our whole life, our dreams, our heart or not?? This is a powerfully moving book!! It will change your life and the way you look at people and yourself if you let it. I highly recommend this book and the other books that Denise has written.Nora St.Laurentwww.psalm516.blogspot.com
