Raymond Lee Bennett is coming home from Mississippi’s Parchman Penitentiary after serving 15 years for a crime that he can't remember. All he wants is to live in peace, revive his late grandfather's custom farming business, get to know the daughter, Emmy, he has never seen, and learn the truth.
None of this will be easy. In fact, none of it will happen if Carl Sullivan has his way. And Carl is a man used to having his way. Carl had his way 15 years ago when he had Ray sent to prison. He had his way when Ray's former best friend married Laura, Carl's daughter and the mother of Ray's child. He had his way when Ray signed away any claim he could ever make on Emmy. He sees Ray's parole as an opportunity to have his way again.
Faith brought Ray through an unjust prison sentence, and it will help him fight old, untrustworthy equipment, the elements, the worst kind of reputation and his own demons. But will it hold Ray together in the face of a powerful enemy who will stop at nothing to take everything Ray has or ever hopes to have?
The land is in good shape. Crops are ripe for harvest. This is the story of lives affected when one man's greed collides with another man's search for truth, peace, and redemption, these troubled fields.Old loves, complicated new relationships, manipulation, sabotage and a battle between revenge and ambition fuel the flames that bring it all to a tragic climax. Who will remain to carry on when treachery veers beyond control and threatens the lives of those most innocent? Will faith remain when all seems lost? And when the choice is his to make, amid the havoc brought into his life, who will Ray chose to be?
