This is the darkest story that I ever heard and all my life I have laboured not to tell it?` There is no love like your first love, and Ben Wade`s love for Kelli Troy should have lasted a lifetime. Until her battered body was found on Breakheart Hill. Three decades later, and the small town of Chocataw, Alabama is still living with the aftermath of that day`s shattering violence. Ben, in particular, has never been able to move on.
