Alchemy -- Christmas 1972 

Alchemy is told in alternating points of view. Both Jeffery, Eve's youngest son and Eve recount the events leading up to a family drama that plays out over the Christmas Holiday. This will be the first time all of the children have been home together in a very long time. More than anything Eve wants to make the holiday special for everyone. That proves an impossible task as problems in Eve and Jeff's marriage escalate out of control. Neither Eve nor Jeff have insight into how these family patterns effect their children's' lives. Jeffery provides a contrasting point of view as he navigates the choices he makes in his own life.

Alchemy  is the fourth of five books exploring the lives of Eve and Jeff Lambert.

I am in love with Jeffrey!! But sweet potatoes, I thought her and Clara had kinda got on a decent foot. I'm so sorry. I don't know what to feel. All in all, I love the chapter

Maybe it's a sign of me being a bad or vengeful person but I'm so glad she told him and hurt him.

So excited, I can't wait to see what happens next. I feel sorry for Eve though her relationship with Charlie and Clara seems so complicated.

So much wonderful subtext and dramatic irony to this chapter. But what really stood out to me right from the beginning was the beautiful  description of the cabin in winter and the description of jeffrey's attraction toward Charlotte.
