When he loses his wife in childbirth, Robert’s life is destroyed, and he follows his beloved into the abyss, leaving behind their daughter, Veronica. As she grows, Veronica—“Ronnie”—is haunted by her past and feelings for her father.
The Husting legacy is split between Ronnie and Ware Treallor, an estate worker who won the admiration of Robert for his wholesome, honest, and dedicated character. Seeking to build her own life, Ronnie moves away, marries for riches, and plans never to return. When Ronnie’s life falls apart, she returns to Delaware.
The family’s secrets, once unveiled, bring Ronnie home where she belongs. However, continued tragedy leads to disaster for both Ronnie’s daughter and grandchildren. Good and evil mix as the remaining Hustings navigate a family web filled with more secrets than they could have expected.
