An up and coming young attorney, a soft hearted social worker, and a grumpy old detective help solve the mystery of a twenty-seven year prison term of a seemingly innocent man.
Jeff Galloway, the attorney and prisoner’s son, pieces together the incident surrounding the missing funds from a new bank his father was about to manage. Jeff is having trouble forgiving his father for what he’s done.
When Jeff’s boss asks him to take Melanie home from an office Christmas party, he’s taken with his passenger. Both hurt by past relationships, they tread lightly into a friendship. Her heart melts as Jeff interacts with one of her young clients and Jeff softens to his father as she helps him unravel the past.
Ms. Havel delivers a heartwarming and touching story. The characters have depth and the piece brings a deep message of forgiveness. The ending will put a smile on your face and a sigh to your heart.
