Lawyer-turned-herbalist China Bayles returns to the Deep South, where her family's legacy of silence is at last broken--and the past finally, unforgettably, speaks the truth…


A frantic phone call from her mother brings China back to her family's Mississippi plantation--a place she'd forsaken long ago. But the late-spring air is thick with fear--and from the moment of her arrival, China knows that something has gone desperately wrong at Jordan's Crossing. An ancient property deed has surfaced--and the man who uncovered it has mysteriously vanished. And as the fates and fortunes of two very different families collide in frightening, unpredictable ways, China must face disturbing new questions about her family's past--and her own future…

My favorite book of the China Bayles mystery series so far. China travels with her mother and uncovers her family history.
