THE POLICE SAY THE WOMAN WAS A MURDERER. EMILIE WESLEY KNOWS THEY CANT BE TALKING ABOUT HER CLIENT . . . CAN THEY?
To the world it seems obvious: Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story: Kaylene would never hurt anyone and was looking for a way out of a controlling, abusive relationship. Her death shakes Emilies belief that she can make a difference for women in violent marriages. Self-doubt plagues her as she struggles to continue her work in the wake of the tragedy.
Reid Billings thought he knew his sisterright up until he learned how she died. He discovers a letter from Kaylene begging him to fight for custody of her daughters if anything should happen to her.

Thrown together in a race to save Kaylenes surviving daughter, Emily and Reid pursue the constantly evasive truth. If they can hang on to hope together, can they save a young girland find a future for themselves in the process?
