Life isn't always easy, especially for Elizabeth Reed. Elizabeth recalls refusing to marry the man she thought was her dream. Her father cast her out and pushed her away.
Growing up believing that it would always be fun in the California sun is what guided her to become an M.D. with a private practice in Anaheim—supporting her husband through a troubled marriage, waiting for his startup company to flourish. Mix that with unruly teenagers makes her miss family in Tender Springs, Colorado, more than ever!
Life is stressful but, this was her normal.
This life she could handle. Spoiled rotten kids, a husband that leaves her disappointed, and a career she adores, until an unfamiliar number, appears on her phone with an all too familiar voice attached at the other end. That's when trouble digs even deeper, and Elizabeth's world is rocked upside down. The passing of her Momma brings her back to Tender Springs. After she returns to Anaheim, life throws the biggest curveball of all. All the secrets begin to unfold; her husband kicks her out and nearly strips everything she's worked for away. Elizabeth's children reveal why they went from happy-go-lucky teenagers to miserable outcasts in a short amount of time.
Piece by piece, she begins to regain control of her life and her sense of independence in the one place she thought she left in the rearview mirror. Until a deadly part of the past returns to destroy everything that makes her happy and pushes Elizabeth to the edge to hang on for dear life.
