Maggie Delaney's world implodes one rainy afternoon when her husband Richard is murdered in a botched drug store robbery. To her horror, Maggie learns the shooting may not have been an accident.
An idealistic wife and mother, Maggie attempts to find out what really happened. Her search leads her back to her Carolina roots, through the streets of 1960s New York and modern-day Boston. She retraces the steps of a generation that came of age when the Vietnam War raged and the world was embroiled in conflict.
Then, as the murder trial draws near, disturbing questions will arise about Richard and his possible role in military atrocities. Finally, in the jungles of Southeast Asia, Maggie will uncover a legacy of secrets about the man she thought she knew - and the troubled world they shared.
