Chapter 6: Loose Family Ties
Who knew Peggy Biggs was such a party animal in her youth? Certainly not Molly… or Mike! From committing petty crimes to living like an outlaw, 16-year-old Peggy got herself into all sorts of trouble when she ran away from home with an older man.
Interested to learn everything about Peggy’s childhood, Molly convinced the former wildchild to take a trip back to her hometown, so they hopped in the car and headed out to Mudlick, Missouri.
Unbeknownst to Peggy, Molly had other ideas in mind for their trip, aside from drinking malts and talking about young love. Frozen desserts hit the fan—literally—when Molly arranged for a meeting between Peggy and her estranged sister, Rosemary, and we learned just why the women hadn’t seen each other in 50 years. Turns out Peggy’s Romeo was actually her sister’s fiance.
Can you say, “Drama?”
After a heartfelt conversation, Peggy and Rose were able to put the past behind them and focus on fostering a healthy relationship—but not before Molly was able to jot down all of the juicy details from their past. This next book is off to a great start!
