Peace at Toni Matthew's house is short lived after her father's murder is solved. With her sister, Melissa, home safely and a new romance budding with Abe, it looks like Toni's opportunity to put her life back together. But the moment's serenity is shattered when Carrie, Melissa's best friend, is crippled during a shooting at the local high school.
Not buying that the shooter, Tom Blevins, acted alone, Toni and Abe begin their own investigation, eventually befriending Tom and ministering to him in prison. Meanwhile, Melissa struggles with her budding faith as she watches her friend's efforts to walk again. But forgiveness is in Carrie's heart, and her act of reaching out to Tom begins a chain reaction of grace that eventually unravels the plot that led to the tragic shooting. Each character discovers the high price that love demands.
