Four elderly southern women share a house, a history, and heartbreaking secrets. Baby girl, I hope you're listening real good to what I'm gonna tell you about that sure-enough miracle we got us. Had to be a miracle, because in all my born days, I didn't never think it could turn out like this. Didn't never think you'd be sitting right here on this very porch with me, hearing me talk about all us folks you don't know nothing much about yet.. . . Back then, I didn't really know that all the folks who came ahead of us are like the brown roots of a big old vine growing close to the porch, and even though those roots are way down deep in the ground where we can't see them, they're still there. And we grow from them, our whole lives, and then, if we're lucky, others grow from us. Well, I expect that the ones who came before us--black and white--had things they had to keep still about, too, just like me and Miss Cora. Things we had to do, whether we liked it or not. And then never speak of them again. Augusta Trobaugh is the acclaimed author of fine novels including PraiseJerusalem, Sophie and the Rising Sun, and coming soon, Music From Beyond the Moon.

Leaving his position in the king's army, Michael settled down with his wife in a small farmhouse in the woods, raising two children, and assuming his life of violence was behind him. When he wasn't helping his wife with the garden or doing chores, he would be in the woods with his 16-year-old son, Benny, teaching him everything he knew about woodcraft and hunting. Sophie, Benny's 12-year-old sister, would often tag along, watching from the shadows. A very small and quiet girl, Sophie always seemed happy to amuse herself. So often overlooked by her family, never noticing just how special she was—that was about to change. One day, when the two kids are out playing in the woods, Sophie inexplicably panics and runs for home. Confused, Benny follows and the two arrive just in time to witness a band of mercenaries attacking their farm, looting their possessions and taking their parents captive. There is no one they can call on for help―no one who can save their parents from whatever horrible fate awaits them. And so, that responsibility falls squarely on their own small shoulders ... assuming they can avoid capture themselves.

When Sophie Lawrence finds herself under suspicion of a vicious murder she has her already upside-down life turned inside-out. With so many changes in so short a time, she must decide who to turn to for help. Will it be her recently found brother, who might have secrets of his own, or the detective whom she just cannot seem to forget and who betrayed her in the worst possible way – or did he? With so many twists and turns she must learn to trust and perhaps she will find her happy-ever-after. Cam Doyle is a seasoned detective. He has seen it all and had to put up with those who would seek to find ways around the justice system. When the beautiful Sophie turns up, another woman trying to beat the system, he is bowled over by her, never truly able to put her out of his mind, and when she needs his help, like a white knight he finds himself sacrificing everything for her. But Cam is a realist. He understands that what they have is fleeting, that he is a cop and she a star.
