Charlotte ‘Charley’ Jeffreys lives for her son, Owen. Certainly not for her husband, Kyle; he's far too liberal with his fists. But when Owen becomes Kyle's target, Charley has to protect him. Together they flee to her grandfather's farm. A place Kyle doesn't know; a place where they can be safe.
But Kyle is not her only problem. She soon finds that her grandfather has enemies--people like Annie Farrell, who blames Charley’s grandfather for her family’s woes and who wants revenge. She will stop at nothing, not even murder, to get it.
As the problems and pressures mount, once again threatening both her and her son, Charley learns that the worst of her fears has become a reality.
Kyle has found her and intends to teach her a lesson she may not survive.
Their final conflict will be a fight to the death.
