She survived a traumatic childhood, but that was only the beginning...
elilah returns home to Venice, Kentucky, after separating herself from her family for years. Intent on rebuilding relationships, she's blindsided when she learns her abusive father is being released from prison—and heading back to Venice. Despite the emotional blow, she determines to stick it out for the sake of her grandmother.
Delilah's return has another purpose: digging into her difficult past and finding out the truth about her mother's disappearance. She never believed her father's story that Sloan Ramsey abandoned her family—leaving her children in a dangerous situation. Before she settles in or makes headway with the local sheriff about revisiting her mother’s unsolved case, Delilah becomes rattled by several encounters with people from her past. She begins to doubt that her homecoming was a good idea.
Her frustrations are compounded when her brother discourages her efforts to re-examine their mother’s case. The push-back from her family chips at her resolve, and unexpected revelations about her loved ones mount. Each new insight about her mother's life and disappearance forever changes Delilah's perceptions of the people she thought she knew.
As family ties become strained, she forges ahead—and risks her life to unearth her mother's horrifying fate. Ultimately, Delilah must decide if she will sacrifice the reputation and freedom of those she loves most to uncover the truth, because some people will do anything to keep long-buried secrets in their graves.
