A well paced story about Destiny, discrimination, love, murder, revenge and the ultimate understanding between people in small town America. Houlton, Maine, doesn't afford many opportunities to members of the Maliseet tribe of Native Americans-including young Padgett Harvey, who is half Maliseet, half white. After her parents are murdered and her grandparents die in a fire, twelve-year-old Padgett is unceremoniously thrust into the foster care system. But despite her rough beginnings, she excels in school, goes to college, and enjoys a meteoric rise through the world of finance in New York City. Like Padgett, Sean Patrick McGuinness had a rocky start in Houlton-albeit in the poor Irish part of town. And like Padgett, he relied on his wits and his charm to get out of town and never look back. But destiny has a way of calling people home, and Padgett and Sean Patrick can't escape Houlton forever-especially when their friends at home need them the most. With money on the line, old rivalries from Padgett's and Sean Patrick's childhood rear their heads-and things get ugly. Will returning to Houlton undo everything Padgett and Sean Patrick worked so hard to achieve? Or does destiny have something surprising in store?
