Will Travers left Hope Springs ten years ago, accused of a crime he didn't commit. He tried to make a life for himself and his young wife far, far away. But his wife wanted more, and left him for greener pastures. Now he's raising his son on his own, and he realizes there's no better place to do that than Hope Springs. Even if it means facing Libby Jefferies again. Especially if it means facing Libby Jefferies. She was the only "witness" to his alleged crime.
But Libby is not at all pleased to see him. Particularly when a series of "accidents" begins to occur. But this time Will needs her on his side. She's the only person who can help him make enough sense of the past to allow him to give his son a future. And, ironically, that future now includes Libby.
2nd in the Hope Springs series
A little mystery, a little romance, some major conflict, an elderly lady who can't talk, and a cute little boy - - I love Peg Sutherland, her characters are lifelike and you really feel like you know them. The setting is small-town, one of my favorites. This is a really good story, I couldn't put it down!
