Fleeing an abusive husband, Hayley returns to her childhood home, an old farmhouse with an ugly past. Alone and penniless, she fights memories of her brother's death and of the boy she loved and never forgot. Even the land itself—hostile, thorny, unforgiving—seems against her. Then she realizes someone else is on the land, someone who doesn't belong, with secrets to protect and murder on his mind.
