Forgiveness is one thing, but who really forgets?Ivy Griffith has been released from jail after serving time for covering up the strangulation death of a high school classmate ten years earlier. She's paid her debt to society. Kicked her drug habit. She's making a fresh start.Problem is, everyone in her hometown of Jacob's Ear, Colorado, knows what she did. And her seven-year-old son, Montana, won't stop probing about the father he has never met-the man Ivy was too stoned to even remember. Plagued by her own shame and her little boy's cries for male affirmation, Ivy is thrilled when Rue Kessler takes an interest in Montana and her. Maybe, just maybe, he's the answer to prayer she's been waiting for.
