Everyone has a family history, those little stories that include grandma's recipes for chocolate pie and the sad truth that Aunt Helen embezzled the church building fund. That is everyone but Annabelle Bruster. She has no family recipes or funny stories. Instead she has a momma, daddy, brother, and a secret.

Her fiance, Marc Hutchens, has a family tree that stretches back generations. When he finally asks the fateful question of "where are you from," she decides it's time to finally uncover the answers. But you should always be careful what you ask for.

Instead of rich relatives and sweet memories she finds mystery and murder. Sometimes the past is best left behind, especially when there is a question of guilt and innocence. Can Annabelle let go of what she learns to navigate a new path with Marc or will the past destroy her future?
