TheMoreWould you have the faith to do the right thing? The List is the first in the Wallis Jones series about a happy family that gets caught between two old political powers that have always existed behind the scenes, invisible to most of the public. The two sides have battled over control for hundreds of years actively recruiting new members at a young age to groom them for politics, Wall Street, Corporate corner offices and the military. Wallis Jones is the wife of Norman, mother to Ned and a successful attorney living the good life but shes about to find out that shes also a pawn in the deadly games of two powerful global secret societies at war with each other and her loved ones are the ultimate prize.Nothing is as it seems. People you thought you knew arent what you thought. There really is a Good Old Boys network, at every level of society, except they arent good at all. There really is a (not-so) grand conspiracy shaping the path of the world, and its been in force for hundreds of years in evil ways. The bad guys are gaining, but there is another network recruiting members to oppose the evil.Carr has roots in the DC area, the Richmond, Va. area, and in the Episcopal church (her father was a minister). All that knowledge is woven into the plot, as is her expertise about orphanages in the U.S. (See her book: A Place to Call Home: The Amazing Success Story of Modern Orphanages)The greatest force against evil is love, and fierce love prevails again and again in this book. Wallis is flung into the melee against her will, but realizes she must fill her prodigious place in the fight, for the sake of her son and other boys his age, not to mention the fate of the world.
