Here, take a gander, then tell me you aren’t rattled."
After adjusting his spectacles, Paul unfolded the pale blue stationary and read aloud:
"My name is Ophelia Harrington. For twenty-one years, I have denied my birth daughter, known as Veezie, her rightful place as a member of the Harrington family."
Paul stopped. His gaze locked with the executor’s. "Veezie? Who is this Veezie?"
The executor made a slight motion of the wrist. "Keep going. You’ve only begun."
Advised by a quack doctor in 1915 that her unborn child is at risk for lunacy, a wealthy woman pays a midwife to secretly switch her baby with the newborn daughter of a penniless couple. Twenty-one years later, when the horrifying truth is revealed in a Last Will and Testament, Harper Harrington is forced to swap places with Veezie, the rightful heir. The backwoodsy Veezie wastes no time booting Harper out of palatial Nine Gables. With no funds and nowhere to go, Harper moves into the rundown shanty that Veezie previously called home, in Goose Hollow, Alabama.
And so begins the Switched Trilogy.
