When a young woman returns to North Carolina after a
thirty-year absence, she finds that the once grand tobacco
plantation she called home holds more secrets than she ever
Though Peak Plantation has been in her family for
generations, Leslie Nichols can’t wait to rid herself of
the farm left to her by her estranged grandmother
Maggie—and with it the disturbing memories of her
mother’s death, her father’s disgrace, and her unhappy
childhood. But Leslie isn’t the only one with a claim to Peak.
Jay Davenport, Peak’s reclusive caretaker, has his own
reasons for holding onto the land bequeathed to him by
Leslie’s grandmother. Before she died, Maggie hinted at a
terrible secret surrounding Adele Laveau, a lady’s maid
who came to Peak during the 1930s and died under mysterious
circumstances. Jay is haunted by Maggie’s story, yet the
truth eludes him—until Leslie uncovers a cryptically
marked grave on the property.
As they delve into the mystery of Adele’s death, Leslie
and Jay discover shocking secrets that extend deep into the
roots of Leslie’s family tree—secrets that have the
power to alter her life forever.
