For over a century, the legend of the Lonely Hart Ranch defined the Hart family members, goading them to the high standards of founder, Maggie Hart. The current family matriarch, 93-year-old Belle Hart, shined that legend to a sparkle and kept a tight rein on the members of the family. But now, Belle's world is changing.

After a neighbor's attempted assault, Belle's granddaughter, Chrysanthemum Hart, fled from the ranch and her alcoholic mother. But she did not leave penniless: she stole her sister’s college savings. Fifteen years and many burned bridges later, she returns to Northern New Mexico to attend her mother’s funeral believing this will put her own guilt to rest and help rebuild her ruined family relationships. Instead, she steps into a snare of complications as she and her sister work together to sell the family ranch -- what’s left of it.

As the past and the present intertwine, Chrysanthemum uncovers a secret about the family’s buried history. And she finds herself head-to-head with Belle, the caretaker of the legend and the gatekeeper of the secret.
