In the Massachusetts countryside, family secrets run deep, until an outside influence threatens to tear apart a close-knit community.
Felicity O'Brien hopes the warning shot fired from her porch is enough to scare off the intruder who's been snooping around her family's farm. Days later, when two young women are found dead nearby, Felicity can't figure out how the deaths are related, and even her inherited healing touch isn't enough to ease the community's pain over the tragic loss.
Felicity only knows that somebody wants something bad enough to kill for it, but all she has is the worn out property her parents passed down to her. Joining forces with her friend Jeremy Colson, Felicity tries to uncover the truth and save herself and her land from those who would do her harm.
