This is a story about three generations of women who find their way past old hurts and losses to understanding, forgiveness, and love. Winifred Parker climbed out of poverty by marrying into one of Philadelphia's oldest, wealthiest families. Now 72 years old, she always felt that her son married beneath him and has had no contact with her daughter-in-law, Zoe, since her son was killed in Korea. Zoe lives alone on twenty-eight acres of rural Carolina land that she inherited from her parents. Faced with the threat of foreclosure, Zoe, now in her fifties, has no choice but to turn to her wealthy, estranged mother-in-law. Katie Parker is a young divorcée whose daughter recently passed away. When she returns home to Zoe's land to heal, she knows enough about her mother's history to be surprised to find her grandmother living there, too. Though old grievances stand between the three, new challenges and grave danger cause them to forge a new path together.--From publisher description
