Throughout her childhood, Grace Morrissey, the oldest in a family of six girls, had been known as the reliable and dependable one.  But when she got the opportunity to get hitched and leave Atlanta, she fled and didn’t think twice.  Now a divorcee with two teenage kids, she is struggling to find answers for the emptiness she has felt her entire life.

A phone call beckoning her home for the funeral of her beloved uncle Byron leaves her reeling.  For years she has resisted gong back to face the memories of an unhappy childhood filled with dark secrets.  But Grace soon finds herself back on her hometown soil and quickly embroiled in sibling drama.

Although Grace has run from the past her entire life, she learns that long buried family incidents have a way of coming to light, and that confrontation can bring healing.  Now it will be up to her to decide whether the truth will be her final undoing, or if this long journey home can be her saving grace.
