What price will Eliza be willing to pay for love, when love seems to only bring grief? Just when the twenty-four-year-old finally feels ready to move beyond the pain of losing her mother, Eliza receives an odd phone call from the attorney of her deceased grandmother, propelling her into a deeper exploration of grief and love. As long-hidden secrets resurface, the legacy of her family could be at stake. Flung back into her grandmother's mysterious past at the time of the Mexican Revolution, Eliza must face the truth her beloved grandmother chose decades of silence to protect - until now. When past and present collide, can Eliza somehow come to terms with the intermingling of love and grief, for the sake of her family's legacy… and for the sake of her own heart?
