Driving late at night on a rural road in North Carolina in 1948, Billy Dalton sees a fiery car in the distance. He brakes, sprints to the burning vehicle, and rescues a beaten woman and a rope-bound child just before the gas tank explodes.
Later, awakening in a hospital and covered with burns, the sheriff tells Billy there was no woman, no child and no other vehicle found at the scene—only the scorched wreckage of Billy’s own car. Gradually and reluctantly, Billy accepts the story that he crashed his automobile into a tree and hallucinated the woman and the child in the trauma of the fire.
However, thirteen years later a surprise visit from a private investigator helps Billy unravel the mystery of what really happened on the night of the burning car.
A suspenseful tale of deceit, desperation, love, revenge, and redemption.

"An immersive and affecting story of injustice and an exemplification of the unbreakable human spirit... Lacey and Billy are vivid representatives of a historical period that was all too frequently characterized by gross injustice. Their respective plights will invest readers in their story, and their endurance and eventual flourishing cannot help but inspire." —Kirkus Reviews
