RAINE MOSS was losing her mind, and only her sister, Dorsey, suspected it was due to something other than a diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer's. However, Raine's charming husband, Hartley, is a master at deception. When Raine suddenly inherits the family's ancestral home in North Georgia, Hartley shows his true colors and threatens to sell it to care for his wife in Atlanta at her assisted-living facility, Waterhaven. Dorsey knows it's to settle gambling debts.
Dorsey and the Dudley women battle him in court to gain control of Raine and their beloved farm, Thimbleberry. Eventually, when Hartley feels backed into a corner, he blackmails Dorsey's husband, Blue, for quick cash. He assumes Blue is an easy target, but Blue shows him that kindness doesn't equate to weakness.
Raine's health improves at Waterhaven due to the friendship she rekindles with another resident, her cousin, Etta DeRenne. Etta and her family have installed a magnificent garden that is a soothing balm for Raine's harried soul. She and Etta grow close, and when blind Dr. Broadmoor arrives on site, the three form a unique friendship, and an unconventional love story unfolds.
At last, it was time for Hartley's fiendish business plan to unfold, and he is told to clean up any loose ends. His handler knows that Raine witnessed something she shouldn't have, and though she has dementia, Hartley and his sinister cohorts can't risk a moment of her lucidity.
