In 1940, a man accused of attempted rape was allowed to walk free while his victim was virtually imprisoned in her home in terror of her attacker. A few months after the attack, the man was ambushed and murdered. The killing was never solved and soon forgotten. In 1951, an alcoholic wife abuser was murdered in his barn. Three weeks later, a well-known rancher’s wife was found murdered with her lover in the loft of a hay barn. These killings bore an eerie resemblance to the 1940 slaying. Deputy sheriff Leonard Cranford was tasked with following the few leads that existed in an attempt to bring the killer to justice. As his investigation proceeds, the evidence begins to point to beautiful Ann Parsons, a young woman Cranford loves and respects. Trapped in a loveless marriage to a greedy, money-grubbing, older man, Ann has dedicated her life to helping the many poor and unfortunate people in her community. Unknown to Ann, events are about to transpire that will change her life forever. The only question is, will they transpire in time to save Ann from herself?
