Emily Leland does not grieve when she learns that her abusive husband was killed in a bar fight. She is more than happy to leave the nightmare of her life behind and return to her childhood home. But the homecoming is far different from what she expected.
First, she discovers that her father has died under mysterious circumstances. Then she learns that the house where the new schoolteacher and his son were planning to live has burned to the ground, leaving them homeless. To add to the mix, her family is facing financial ruin. As a last effort, Emily proposes that she and her sister turn their family home into a boardinghouse. But her sister wants no part of this venture and leaves town.
Alone and broke, Emily moves forward with her plans for the boardinghouse, taking on the schoolmaster, Craig Ferguson, and his son as boarders. The widowed father proves to be an unexpected ally. Not only is he a devoted father and an innovative teacher, but as their friendship grows, Craig is determined to help her get to the bottom of her father’s death.
Can they work together to unmask a killer and escape the shadows of their own past in order to forge a brighter future?
