In the 1940s, Alice Murphy, successful editor of the Asheville Southern Journal, meets a promising young soldier and writer just returned from the war in Europe, whom she agrees to take under her wing. Meeting him awakens thoughts of the child she lost years ago as a young girl in rural Zebulon, North Carolina. Her journey to rediscover her past reveals truths long hidden and promises for a brighter future.
