Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Orphan Train comes a novel about buried secrets and the redemptive power of forgiveness.
Cassie Simon is a struggling artist living in New York City. When she receives a call from a magistrate telling her she has inherited 60 acres of land in Sweetwater, Tennessee, from her grandfather, whom she never knew, she takes it as a sign: it's time for a change. She moves to the small Southern town where her mother, Ellen, grew up - and where she died tragically when Cassie was three.
From the moment she arrives in Sweetwater, Cassie is overwhelmed by the indelible mark her mother's memory left behind. As she delves into the thicket of mystery that surrounds her mother's death, Cassie begins to discover the desperate measures of which the human heart is capable.

Story ok. But.

I probably would have enjoyed the story much more if the person narrating "Cassy's" part was someone else. This person has a very strange affectation in her enunciation of words that is mechanical and depressing. It was so odd and distracting I found myself loosing track of the story line

It was a good story but the narrator was difficult for me to listen to.
