It had taken fifteen years for the small town of Morey's Falls, in the Montana foothills, to come to terms with a tragedy that had touched all their lives. Now, Tanner, the son of the man who had been the cause of it all, had returned. His arrival stirred up old memories, feelings... and for Ellie Johnson Lundquist, it changed her life.
