All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start. But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever?
Convicted of a crime she didn’t commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows.
But Allie’s return to Brunswick, Georgia, sends earthquakes through the small, coastal community. Even her daughter Caroline, now a teenager, challenges Allie’s claims of innocence.
Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a campaign for the truth, digging deep into the past. Her investigation threatens her parole status, her own safety, and the already-fragile bond with her family. What Allie uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret—one that holds the key to Allie’s freedom.

She has a daughter she barely knows so she returns home to Brunswick, Georgia to get to know her daughter, clear her name and make a new life . That's a tall order for anyone.

When she gets home, she finds out that no one really believes she didn't commit the crime she was accused of. Allie isn't a quitter.  She goes on a mission to find out the truth.  That may mean she will have to go against her parole. She may never find out the truth but she's willing to go to her past to find the truth.
