I looked up at her and stepped back because I couldn't believe this woman don killed somebody." Forgiveness is the key to the recovery of the soul, but Hattie Mae Wilson has to learn this the hard way. From the moment of her birth, she grows up fighting-for life, for air, and for survival.

Even though she changes, her sins haven't, and they've gone unforgiven for too long. How can she make things right after committing such horrendous acts? Hattie has to find out how to turn over her soul before she loses it all.
