Growing up, Annette Goode thought all men were as low-down
as the father who deserted her and her mother for another
woman. And she saw little to prove otherwise. There was Mr.
Boatwright, the boarder who abused her for yearsâ€”until her
best friend Rhoda murdered him. And what about the men she
slept with to earn the money she needed to run away from her
life? None of them was exactly the picture of chivalry. But
now, after decades of soul searchingâ€”and mountains of
heartacheâ€”Annette has reunited with the father she never
really knew. Sheâ€™s severed all ties with the dangerously
unstable Rhoda. And finally her real life has started to
take shape. Or so she thinksâ€¦
Things start to fall apart atâ€”of all placesâ€”Annetteâ€™s own
pre-wedding celebration, where a guest reveals that the
beautiful bride-to-be once turned tricks for a living. When
her fiancĂ© pulls a disappearing act, Annette reunites with
Pee Wee Davisâ€”the man who has been her on-again, off-again
sweetheart since childhood. Itâ€™s not a great life, but itâ€™s
a pretty good one.
Yet for years, Annette has been holding the secret of her
ex-friend Rhodaâ€™s murderous past deep in her heart. She
knows itâ€™s a burden that will torment her until she can put
the past to rest. So when Rhoda suddenly walks back into her
life, Annette must decide what she should believeâ€”and what
she can forgiveâ€”as she tries to salvage the one relationship
that she just canâ€™t seem to let goâ€¦
