“He’s a gambler at best.
A con artist at worst,” her aunt had said of the handlebar-mustached
man who snatched Ella Wallace away from her dreams of studying art in
France. Eighteen years later, that man has disappeared, leaving Ella
alone and struggling to support her three sons.
While the world is
embroiled in World War I, Ella fights her own personal battle to keep
the mystical Florida land that has been in her family for generations
from the hands of an unscrupulous banker. When a mysterious man arrives
at Ella’s door in an unconventional way, he convinces her he can help
her avoid foreclosure, and a tenuous trust begins.
But as the fight for Ella’s land intensifies, it becomes evident that things are not as they appear. Hypocrisy and murder soon shake the coastal town of Apalachicola and jeopardize Ella’s family.
