What if the one thing you wanted most was the one thing you could never have? What If you’d done something so terrible that you could never go back?
Delia Reynolds has it all—money, social status, a husband that loves her. Then why is she so miserable? Why is she haunted by her past?
Delia tries to mold her daughter, Sybil, into her debutante life, but it’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Needing a new life, Sybil flees the fast-paced life of Atlanta and takes her daughter to, of all places, Delia’s hometown, nearly sending Delia over the edge. Faced with the trauma of losing her daughter to the place she spent a lifetime trying to escape, Delia is forced to relive the trauma of the past—trauma that began when her younger sister fell for the son of a snake handler.
Sybil takes a job at a real estate office and unwittingly becomes entangled in an explosive battle that escalates to murder. She becomes involved in a tempestuous relationship with Kade Langston who’s everything she ever wanted in a man and more. She starts to suspect there may be more to him than meets the eye when one of the partners in the real estate group turns up dead.
Will Delia and Sybil get the second chances they so desperately seek, or will the secrets of the past destroy them?
