Audiobook Summary:Jane Langton returns with another mystery in her 30-year-spanning series about the frumpy but sagacious detective, Homer Kelly. Of the battlefield at Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln said, "The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract." Most of the Harvard men who were killed at Gettysburg died as valiant heroes. But according to Mary Kelly's family lore, one of her ancestors was a deserter, unworthy of the noble words in Lincoln's peroration. In setting out to clear her ancestor's name, Mary and her husband, the brilliant and lovable Professor Homer Kelly, uncover what may have been a very dastardly deed indeed. Through wit and scrupulous research, they illuminate this dark corner of Kelly family history.
