‘Goodwin Girls’ follows one woman’s search for knowledge and closure following her grandmother’s death.

A young psychologist embarks on a quest to uncover the mystery of her grandmother’s past in Diane Craig’s new novel, “Goodwin Girls” (published by iUniverse).

Olivia Crenshaw had always been close to her grandmother, Mercedes, and when she is offered a position as a temporary counselor at the nursing home in the town where Mercedes once lived, Olivia welcomes the opportunity.

Mercedes’ troubled spirit visits Olivia nightly in her dreams, and the young woman becomes determined to find out more about her grandmother’s life. Rubee, a resident at the nursing home and Mercedes’ former roommate, is haunted by her own memories, and as Olivia gets to know the old woman, she realizes that Rubee might have important information about Mercedes’ mysterious life.

Drawing on her skills as a psychologist, Olivia delves into Rubee’s fragile, fragmented mind, knowing that she holds the key to unlock the door to Mercedes’ past. As Olivia delves into her grandmother’s former life with Rubee guiding her, she unearths the details of a tragic event. Will this new knowledge bring both women the closure they so desperately seek?
