The Midwest Book Review Recommended Read Salina Graves, recently married to a man twice her age, faces an agonizing truth--the criminal betrayal of her father by her husband, Lyman. But the truth of that betrayal lies in her deceased father's journal. Her mother's posthumous cry for family vindication leads Salina on a desperate search for the mysteriously missing journal, but her search is thwarted when her tyrannical husband is critically injured. When her attractive, but errant stepson, Mick Graves, returns home to tend his comatose father, Salina and Mick are drawn to one another. Warring with her illicit feelings for her stepson who now shares the ancestral home in eastern Kentucky is Salina's determination to carry out her plan of vindication. Will she be able to find her father's journal, absolve her family name, and survive the metaphorical storm surrounding her relationship with her stepson?
