A simple box of mementos, hidden in a farmhouse in Wales for nearly seventy years, is enough to set Nara Blake on a search for the truth about her great-grandparents, and to put her own life in danger. As she begins to learn the truth, two members of a family who lost everything in World War II blame Nara and her family for their lost wealth, which includes a priceless Cézanne painting. The two families are put on a collision course that can only end in the destruction of long-held beliefs, and ultimately one must pay the price for the losses of the past.
