Fifty Minus Six

Randall W. Anderson

The old aristocrat, Vera McMichael, has two terrible quandaries in her last decade of life. First, there is the teen pregnancy of her granddaughter, Clara. For the 1940s, a baby out of wedlock would foil the family's reputation, especially living in Smut near Vidalia, GA. However, Big Mama, the staunch matriarch, manages to save face by concealing the truth. Secondly, her daughter's death presents a bigger dilemma. Obviously waiting like a vulture for Big Mama's demise, Clara is a vixen. The problem is the will of Vera's late father. All her property, a life estate from him, is destined to belong to the undeserving granddaughter. Determined, Vera schemes and lies again to obtain her goal in a devious plan called 'The Fifty.' The family lawyer tries in vain to advise Vera against this crazy idea. However, the two new employees, too naïve to understand the deep ramifications and potential consequences, accept her offer. In a stupendously twisted irony, 'The Fifty' eventually entangles the lives of two people yet to be born when it was incubated. Novelist Randall W. Anderson spins a tall, tantalizing tale. You will chuckle at what it took to bury Vera, abhor Clara's odious words, feel Andrew's agonizing pain, taste Jelly's sweet success, and whiff Vera's fragrant roses. Every mounting lie and discovered truth is absolutely appalling. Forget rattling. For ages the skeletons in Vera McMichael's closet jangled!
