Eveline Weaver is returning to Richmond for her uncle's funeral. It's a service she'd prefer to miss. Uncle Neville was not the kind, old uncle the rest of the public deemed him to be and remembering his life is not what she wants to do.
Throughout the service, she's counting down the minutes until she's back on the plane returning home to Atlanta. Only when she spots a familiar face from her past after the service, she reconsiders going back so soon. Dodge Mallory. The one every girl in high school wanted, including Eveline. One embarrassing afternoon with him changed her life. Did he remember her? Did she really want him to?
Eveline is forced to face all of her demons at once. Past and present. Will it all knock her down? Or will she be able to savor the future by salvaging the past?
