The Scrimshaw Set begins with Frances Favager's will. Frances was never allowed to see her granddaughter, Emma, but she left her estate to Emma with the stipulation that Emma had to spend time in Montana to claim it. Emma is a disillusioned family law attorney in Denver when Harold B. Lowe, the only attorney in Buffalo Jump, writes to her and offers his help so she can comply with Frances' wishes. Emma takes two weeks from her law practice, travels to Buffalo Jump, and meets Frances' old friends. As she does her best to fulfill Frances' demands, Emma confronts her own values and discovers why her parents kept Frances from her. The novel is a quick read at about 44,000 words. There are unexpected surprises and a satisfying conclusion. A reader in the United Kingdom gave the novel 5 stars and said, "I liked the book, it was genuine, different with twists and turns and not quite what I expected."
