Her kind doctor husband was struck down by a senseless act of violence at his inner-city clinic in Chicago on August 4, 1964. The killer has not yet been found. Now she and her daughter seek to start a fresh life by moving to her grandparents’ long-abandoned estate, nestled in the lovely Ozark region of Arkansas. Elizabeth’s daughter, Alexandria, misses her father terribly, and now she must face extreme culture shock as she’s thrown from modern Chicago society to the slower pace of Carterville. She misses her friends, and she misses the life she’s had to leave behind, the only life she’s ever known.
Her mother cannot let go of the blinding hatred she feels for the person who killed her husband. When the police finally catch the killer, she wants to make sure he’s punished to the maximum for what he did, and most Chicagoans agree with her.
Read how, little by little, the hand of God works in these people’s lives and heals them completely. But don’t skip to the ending, because there are unexpected events that will keep the reader in suspense to the very last page.
