|Summary, etc.:||North Carolina, 2018: Morgan Christopher's life has been derailed. Taking the fall for a crime she did not commit, she finds herself serving a three-year stint in the North Carolina Women's Correctional Center. Her dream of a career in art is put on hold-until a mysterious visitor makes her an offer that will see her released immediately. Her assignment: restore an old post office mural in a sleepy southern town. Morgan knows nothing about art restoration, but desperate to leave prison, she accepts. What she finds under the layers of grime is a painting that tells the story of madness, violence, and a conspiracy of small town secrets. North Carolina, 1940: Anna Dale, an artist from New Jersey, wins a national contest to paint a mural for the post office in Edenton, North Carolina. Alone in the world and desperate for work, she accepts. But what she doesn't expect is to find herself immersed in a town where prejudices run deep, where people are hiding secrets behind closed doors, and where the price of being different might just end in murder. What happened to Anna Dale? Are the clues hidden in the decrepit mural? Can Morgan overcome her own demons to discover what exists beneath the layers of lies?|

In 2018, Morgan has just been released from jail and is approached by an unknown woman asking her to go to the small town of Edenton, North Carolina to restore an old mural painted by a woman who disappeared shortly after finishing the piece. In 1940, Anna Dale is an artist who has just moved to Edenton after being selected to paint this mysterious mural. Through both time lines, the reader unravels the secrets behind what happened to Anna all those years ago and why Morgan was specifically selected to restore the mural. Bennett has the tricky job of bouncing between two protagonists in two different eras. She executes this feat with such ease with her changes in dialect and accent-work that it truly feels like Anna and Morgan are telling the story themselves. The slight mystery is so compelling and the characters are filled with such heart, that this will keep the listener on their toes and incapable of pausing the story before getting to the end.
