Cilla McGowan - granddaughter of movie goddess Janet Hardy - has fled the cut-throat world of Hollywood for the peace and quiet of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Cilla restores houses for a living and has always dreamed of returning her grandmother's country retreat to its former glory. But a tragedy haunts the old farmhouse, and Cilla's restoration project is stirring up old scandals along with the dust and cobwebs.
As Cilla begins to dig deeper into her grandmother's mysterious death thirty years ago, events take a darker turn. Someone in town is determined to keep the truth buried - at any cost. Cilla's new neighbour Ford Sawyer wants to help - but Ford is exactly the kind of man Cilla is running from . . .
