Katherine Caine feels like a fish out of water in the Philadelphia neighborhood where she is the only single in a world of families. In the e-book by Jane Kelly, author of the Meg Daniels mysteries, she solves a mystery and proves that there is much more to the woman the neighbors describe as "The Widow Lady."
