Sheriff Spencer Arrowood keeps the peace in his small Tennessee town most of the time. Every once in a while, though, something goes wrong.
When 1960s folksinger Peggy Muryan moves to town seeking solitude and a career comeback, and she receives a postcard with a threatening message, her idyll is shattered. Then a local girl who looks like Peggy vanishes without a trace.
Although she was once famous, Peggy has no fondness for the old times. Those days are best left forgotten for Spencer Arrowood, too. But sometimes the past can’t rest, and those who try to forget it are doomed to relive it….

About Sharyn McCrumb
Sharyn McCrumb lives and writes in the Virginia Blue Ridge less than a hundred miles from where her family settled in 1790 in the Smoky Mountains.
This was a book that sat on my boss’s windowsill beckoning me with its silent and irresistible title and cover. I picked it up, looked at the description of its contents — and didn’t stop reading till I finished it. Ms. McCrumb hooked me from the first paragraph and right on through to her last, ultimately satisfying page. Now, I have the happy prospect of being able to go back and read all her work.
