Nina Avery is taking a break from her acting "career" (she survives on bit parts in soaps and the occasional commercial) so that she can help her father adjust to life on the outside. Nina was only 16 when she found her mother dead, stabbed with a kitchen knife. But Nina's father, Duncan, a doctor, found her first, and he was implicated, charged, and eventually convicted of murdering his wife. Nina never thought he was guilty, unlike her older brother, Patrick. Nina's other brother, Jimmy, is only now recovering from the drug and alcohol abuse that gave him solace after losing his mother to death and his father to jail. Duncan insists on returning home, but the small town isn't ready to forgive and forget. Then more tragedy forces Nina to dig further into the death of her mother. MacDonald, the master of the small-town tragedy, delivers another sure winner. Mary Frances Wilkens
