Witt Matlock has long carried a bitter hatred for Hardy Wingate, the man he holds responsible for the death of his daughter. Now, twelve years later, the man to blame for the tragedy is back in his life and that of his niece, Joni.
Widow Hannah Matlock has kept the truth about her daughter Joni's birth hidden for twenty-seven years. Only she knows that Witt is actually Joni's father and not her uncle. She and Witt have never spoken of the night she tried to get even with her philandering husband by seducing his brother. But with Hardy coming between Witt and Joni, Hannah knows she must let go of her secret... whatever the consequences.
Anger, resentment and deceit threaten to destroy a family that teeters on the verge of collapse, until four damaged souls can learn to forgive and allow themselves to love.
