Yancey Riggs was desperate to fulfill the promises he had made—promises to provide his wife Eleanor the finer things in life, promises to leave his children a legacy. But all Eleanor wanted was Yancey, and when she lost him and their home in a tragic fire, she wasn’t sure how she would go on. In an ill-fated turn of events, Eleanor is challenged to provide for her children and come to terms with the mysterious reappearance of her husband during the most difficult of circumstances.
