In Chicago, Leo, six years old, arrives on the last flight from Europe with his dying father. Orphaned, he grows up with his cruel relatives on a Minnesota farm, but where is his real home?
Adaeze’s happy village grows until Dot, her adopted daughter, finds the body of a murdered man outside their house. Dot turns detective and uncovers a secret that goes back a lifetime. Can she protect the ones she loves?
