Now, happily married to Kobai Morrissette, a fine semi professional basketball player she met in San Vito, Italy, she’s remarkably happy.

But, before he can complete the work on his third lucrative contract and realize the company’s full potential, tragedy strikes. A search for resolve thrusts family secrets and passions to surface, and a staggering betrayal that just might upstage a love affair built on quiet hostility.
