(The Andersens Book 1) 

Livia Andersen was a woman who held her family together with a quiet smile and an iron will. Yet less than a week after her death only two of her four children are at the reading of her Will. Of those two her younger son is there primarily to learn what he can from his mother’s lawyer about the whereabouts of his youngest sister. She’s been missing since shortly after their mother’s funeral. He has little doubt as to the cause of her sudden departure. He also feels certain his mother’s long time lawyer is just as knowledgeable to the cause of her departure as he is to where she is.

Like the youngest of her children the eldest of Livia’s children is also missing from the reading of her Will. Though for far different reasons. Noah Andersen doesn’t trust himself near their other sister’s husband. It won’t be a secret much longer that he blames his brother-in-law for his current situation that has him much more up close and personal with the tax authorities than he cares to be. He doesn’t have anything concrete that points directly in his direction but has no doubt he’ll find it. And wonders what he’ll do with the evidence when he does.

Pamela Andersen is at the reading of her mother’s Will. She is also uncharacteristically stunned by what she learns. And not just by what is revealed in the unforeseen terms of her mother’s last wishes. In light of what she’s forced to confront will she continue to take everything she’s told at face value?

And in the midst of all that each of Livia Andersen’s children are dealing with will a totally unexpected gesture by their missing sister bring about the reconciliation their mother would not only want but demand…or will it instead deepen the widening chasm among them?

The Andersen Saga is a story of family. It is a story about joy and loss, hope and sorrow, betrayal and regrets, unconditional forgiveness, high expectations, and unwavering loyalty. It reminds that at the heart of who we are is the family we come from, the family who stands behind and beside us and at times against us. And who we become isn’t just a result of those still with us but those too that we’ve lost along the way. It is about the twists and turns every family deals with, the conflicts from within, and the never ending desire for acceptance and respect.

Betrayal is the first in the ongoing Andersen Family Saga. Other stories in the Andersen Family Saga include Resolute, Broken, Found, Choices, and Regrets.

The Andersen Family Saga is a series of novellas, classified by Amazon as Short Reads. If you love sitting down with a novella style book you will love the Andersen Family Saga. These books fall between the forty-five minute to two hours reading time category of Amazon "Short Reads."
