#7 of the Miss Julia series. Just when Miss Julia's life appears settled, a conniving liar shows up with a man who claims to be the real father of Little Lloyd, her first husband's illegitimate son. Since the boy has a sizeable inheritance from his deceased father, the claim is important. Miss Julia tries to find something with DNA to prove that the imposter is not the boy's real father, and she also has to deal with the possibility of being the first woman to stand for election in the church hierarchy. Each book has several doses of subtle humor.
