""Tucker, I want to tell you a secret." Miss Ella curled my hand into a fist and showed it to me."
""Life is a battle, but you can't fight it with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart.""
An internationally famous photographer, Tucker Mason has traveled the world, capturing things other people don't see. But what Tucker himself can't see is how to let go of the past and forgive his father.
On a sprawling Southern estate, Tucker and his younger brother, Mutt, were raised by their housekeeper, Miss Ella Rain, who loved the motherless boys like her own. Hiring her to take care of Waverly Hall and the boys was the only good thing their father ever did.
When his brother escapes from a mental hospital and an old girlfriend appears with her son and a black eye, Tucker is forced to return home and face the agony of his own tragic past.
Though Miss Ella has been gone for many years, Tuck can still hear her voice--and her prayers. But finding peace and starting anew will take a measure of grace that Tucker scarcely believes in.
