            Spring in the foothills of Tennessee offers a glimpse of what many of us would imagine heaven to look like.  In a small resort town, this halcyon portrait is framed in a safe, secure comfort that offers a temporary refuge to guests and a permanent retreat for retirees.  The quiet, peaceful town of Ridgeville, TN and its inhabitants are shaken when this calm setting serves as the backdrop for a dramatic series of murders with no obvious connection and no clear motive.  Affected by this disruption to the serene life they love are the couple who manage the resort, a local pastor who serves as spiritual harbinger for the town and the County Sheriff responsible for maintaining the peaceful climate they enjoy. 

            A middle-aged widow retires to Ridgeville in an attempt to rebuild a life shattered by the loss of her husband.  As she attempts to begin anew amidst this turmoil, she is welcomed into the group of friends and even begins to embrace the possibility of new love.  She develops a relationship with a previous co-worker that emerges without physical contact, an Internet affair that takes her on a rollercoaster ride of love and passion.  Her hopes are darkened when she finds herself in the eye of the storm of anger and death.
