Let whoever is without sin cast the first stone

Nobody believed that Pastor Matt raped her. The tight-knit religious community punished her when she spoke out, expected fifteen-year-old Mercy to repent for making false allegations. Instead, she ran. And somebody--her father?--beat Pastor Matt into a coma and left his wife for dead.

Twenty-three years later, Iris has put a life together, transformed herself from runaway teen Mercy Asher to sought-after jewelry designer Iris Dashwood. But now that Pastor Matt's awake, she's sliding back, losing ground to the painful memories she's barely kept at bay. Iris has no choice but to return to Lone Pine--to confront the man who tore her life apart and recover the truth from a community that protects its own.
