Forgiveness is one thing, but who really forgets?
Ivy Griffith has been released from jail after serving time for covering up the strangulation death of a high school classmate ten years earlier. She s paid her debt to society. Kicked her drug habit. She s making a fresh start.
Problem is, everyone in her hometown of Jacob s Ear, Colorado, knows what she did. And her seven-year-old son, Montana, won t stop probing about the father he has never met the man Ivy was too stoned to even remember.
Plagued by her own shame and her little boy s cries for male affirmation, Ivy is thrilled when Rue Kessler takes an interest in Montana and her. Maybe, just maybe, he s the answer to prayer she s been waiting for.
But Rue has a shadow hanging over his past and is suspected in a rash of bizarre, brutal beatings. He denies any involvement, and Ivy believes him until she discovers he and Montana have kept a secret from her.
At a loss for what to believe or where to turn, Ivy s on the verge of despair and wonders if even God has given up on her. Or is something bigger at play here something being orchestrated outside of her control that s about to bring down the curtain on everything including her past?"
