Secrets, lies, blame and guilt. Only love and forgiveness can overcome the mistakes of the past.
Witt Matlock has carried around a bitter hatred for Hardy Wingate, the man he holds responsible for the death of his daughter. And now, 12 years later, the man he blames for the tragedy is back in his life -- and in that of his niece, Joni.
Widow Hannah Matlock has kept the truth about her daughter Joni's birth hidden for 27 years. Only she knows that Witt is Joni's father, and not her uncle. She and Witt have never spoken of the night she tried to get even with her philandering husband by seducing his brother.
But with Hardy coming between Witt and Joni, Hannah knows she must let go of her secret...whatever the consequences.
Anger, resentment, and deceit threaten to destroy a family that teeters on the verge of collapse, until four damaged souls can learn to forgive...and allow themselves to love.
