Growing up in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Laura Atwood endured terrifying abuse at the hands of her alcoholic father. Too many times she felt the brunt of his anger, and at the age of sixteen she ran away, determined to try and make a decent life for herself. Even so, the ghosts of the past aren’t so easily shaken.

Laura meets and marries Jim McBane, a wealthy and successful businessman who sets her up in style. She lives in a ritzy townhouse, drives a BMW, and loves her role as his elegant, beautiful wife. But the modern fairy tale has a dark underbelly. Jim’s overbearing nature begins to tarnish the golden dream Laura has built; even worse, when his criminal business dealings put her in danger, she narrowly escapes with her life.

Starting over again isn’t what she wants, but she has no choice. Laura moves in with her aunt Gracie and begins to rebuild her life. Living in the Blue Ridge Mountains again, though, means her ghosts insist on being confronted. Each day brings a new struggle. But when love turns up again in the form of a kind country veterinarian, Laura finds she must finally face her past, even if it will be her undoing.
