Penny Ambrose is a convicted felon, sent to prison after allowing herself to get mixed up in a fraud orchestrated by her husband. Even though she spent two years behind bars, society will forever label her as yet another Black “ex-con.”
Nevertheless, Penny is determined to walk the straight and narrow, pay her court-ordered restitution, and rebuild her life as a law-abiding citizen. She needs money fast, but there’s few options available considering her record.
It’s not easy with no family and few friends. Penny is barely keeping her head above water. When her former lover, a powerful business attorney, is found dead in a field outside downtown Fort Worth, and she inherits his fortune, all eyes turn toward her.
Once again Penny gets swept up in another man’s drama that threatens to send her back to jail—if she’s lucky.
