from the back of the book:

One beautiful summer afternoon, Jody Linder receives shocking news: The man convicted of murdering her father is being released from prison and returning to the small town of Rose, Kansas. It has been twenty-three years since that stormy night when her father was shot and killed and her mother disappeared, presumed dead. Neither the protective embrace of Jody's three uncles nor the safe haven of her grandparent's ranch could erase the pain caused by Billy Crosby on the catastrophic night.

Now Billy Crosby is free, thanks to the efforts of his son, Collin, a lawyer who has spent most of his life trying to provide his father's innocence. Despite their long history of carefully avoiding each other in such an insular community, Jody and Colling find that they share an exclusive sense of loss.

As Jody revisits old wounds, startling truths emerge about her family's tragic past. But even through struggle and hardship, she still dares to hope for a better future - and maybe even love.

From page one of this novel, I got sucked into the Linder family and the mystery of what happened to Hugh-Jay and Laurie.

The story begin with Jody, Hugh-Jay and Laurie's daughter, finding out the man who murdered her parents has been released from jail. As the story starts to unfold, small details start to take on significance and everything the Linder's have believed to be true for twenty-three years start to slowly unravel.

Journal Entry 4 by wingQueen72wing at Hobbs, New Mexico USA on Wednesday, June 29, 2022
This book was in the "Books I've Read and Journaled Bookbox," which I read many years ago. Here is my review:

The Linder family is a powerful ranching family and one day Jody's father is killed and her mother goes missing. Twenty three years later the convicted killer, Billy Crosby, is released from prison and returns to the small town they live in. There are some people who believe Billy was innocent and his son, who is a lawyer, gets Billy a new trial. This story kept me hooked the whole time.
