When Jenna was eighteen, a horrible event occurred that plagued every moment of happiness throughout her life. Even after being married to a wonderful man and raising two children, the secret has eaten away at her. But now, with her beloved husband gone, and the children married and starting their own lives, it's just her and a big empty house.That is until the prodigal son returns, and threatens to reveal her secret and destroy her with his own misguided version of the truth. Jenna must now face her demons and loosen the binds that have clenched her heart before the lies rip her heart in two.
