Anita Sanchez doesn't know who to trust.
Some in her family were killed by Colombian drug lords. Her husband hid his own life of crime from her until he was sent to prison - where he died in a riot. Now one of her husband's old partners claims Anita has money that belongs to him - and he'll stop at nothing to get it back. Terrified, she flees Texas with her young daughter.
When a minor accident forces Anita and her daughter to wait for car repairs in Rockdale, Alabama, Anita wonders if God wants them to make the town their permanent home. But as she feels her heart drawn to local deputy Hawk Henson, Anita becomes fearful.
Can she trust Hawk with her deepest secrets, or will telling him who she really is endanger them all?
