Abridged/2 Cassettes/Approx 3 hours. EBAY lists as unabridged, but is actually abridged.

A daughter holds clues to her father's shocking secrets and her mother would risk anything to protect those secrets. Grace Truscott, in the biography of her father - a great civil rights advocate and Senator - raises questions about a death. Was her own father guilty of killing Ned Emory, the husband of his African-American secretary?

Only one person, the secretary's daughter Nola, knows what really happened, but Nola is guarding a dark secret of her own. While Grace is struggling with a second marriage - melding his children and hers into a new family - the scandal breaks!

From New York to the gracious old mansions and fragrant gardens of Georgia, Eileen Goudge's new novel will touch the heart of every woman who has loved and lost. . . and who has found the courage to love again.
