From the Publisher:
Willa is lucky. She has a happy family—Mom, Jack, her stepsisters Brooke and Alyssa, and Willa—all living together in peace and contentment. But a frantic phone call from her mother's best friend from her hometown of Pryor, Texas, shatters that calm and stability. Willa's birth father has murdered his second wife and two daughters and the police think he is on his way east to find Willa and her mother.| Questions abound as Willa realizes that her mother has held on to many secrets. When her murderous father is shot and killed by the police, the secrets begin to spill out. Willa knows she must search out the truth about the family she never knew existed. In dusty Pryor, away from the peaceful home life she’d always known, Willa begins to find her roots and question the meaning of blood ties. Only by looking at all of the pieces that make up her life can Willa discover her strength and independence—and realize what family ties really mean.
