Hoping for a fresh start in thesmall mountain town of Asheville, North Carolina, she vows to keep her past a secret as she leaves her Missouri home. Though she finds support from the city’s imposing Chief of Police, it’s only a matter of time before the tragic incident she left behind resurfaces, threatening to destroy her new life.
