“Beware of a man named Frederick and his offer of marriage.”
Rose’s granddaughters, Rebecca, Leia and Naomi, have never taken her prophecies seriously. But now that Rose is dead, and Naomi has a new man in her life, should they take heed of this mysterious warning?
Naomi needs to master the art of performing. Rebecca rarely ventures out of her house. She’s afraid of what she might see. As for Rebecca’s twin, everyone admires Leia’s giant brain, but now the genius is on the verge of a breakdown.
Rebecca suspects Naomi’s new boyfriend is hiding something. She begs Leia, now living in the US, to investigate.
Leia’s search takes her to a remote farm in Ohio on the trail of the truth behind a tragic death.
Just who is Ethan? And what isn’t he telling Naomi?
In a story full of drama and mystery, the sisters discover there is more that connects them than they realise, and that only together can they discover exactly what’s behind Rose’s prophecy.
Review The last thing she said by Fany Van Hemelen:
What a well-written story about three sisters who are special, but have difficulties to accept their gifts. Rebecca and Leia are twins, but are completely different. Rebecca left her job as a lawyer for taking care of her family and it looks like she has a bit of a dull life. Leia, on the contrary is an academic with great brains, but is fighting with the high expectations of everybody. Naomi, the youngest one, is an outsider and is searching for her destiny in life. She can touch people with her music. Her two sisters try to protect her from the moment their parents moved to The United States.
In the beginning you read about their grandmother Rose. When it’s her birthday, every year again, the granddaughters have to eat cake and Rose blows a candle and says a prophecy. After her dead the sisters try to connect the dots.
The book shows the life of the three women with their ups and downs. I can tell you a lot about the drama they meet or their loved ones, but I think you just have to read this book so you get the joy of getting lost in their lives. It’s a book about making choices and stand for what you want. The paranormal touch is an extra asset for a lover of magic like me. The mystery in the book is not the most important, but how the relationship between the sisters develop is why you love this story. The last thing she said is a book that you didn’t read for the mystery, but for the wonderful family connection. When you close this book you could be smiling.
