For most of us, our family tree is a definite lineage, tracing back into history many generations. And so too was Michael Kingsbury's. Or at least he thought. That was until he received a letter his grandmother had written nearly fifty years earlier. That letter, and a bit of insight from a local historian, sets Michael on a quest to discover just why his true grandfather was murdered. What he finds, however, is not simply an answer to a two-generation old mystery, but a horrendous injustice that put an innocent man to death. Underlying this story is a tale of love taken away and an affair a woman wanted so much to keep hidden that she withheld evidence to protect her secret - even if it meant someone would die. What Michael discovers will shed new light on his own family and ultimately liberate another from three generations of pain and suffering.
