Set in Appalachia, this compelling suspense story centers on two totally different sisters, their shared history, and the turning point both women face at this particular juncture of their lives.

Elizabeth, the responsible sibling, lives in North Carolina and is planning her long-delayed wedding to her fiancÚ. Gloria, the free spirit, arrives at her sister's Great Smoky Mountains farm seeking refuge, claiming that she is running from her latest man who supposedly wants to kill her. At this time in her life Elizabeth doesn't want to get embroiled in Gloria's drama, plus she doesn't necessarily believe her sister anyhow.

Both women share a past that actually goes farther back than either of them realizes and, like it or not, they are going to have to rely on each other to get through what awaits them as this gripping story unfolds. They are also about to come to a new understanding of the mysterious powers of sisterhood and what it really means to be family.
