Some secrets are worth dying for...Sarah's are worth fighting for...
When you grow up on a small farm in Cottonwood, Arkansas, you expect your life to be uncomplicated. That’s the way it was for Sarah, a down-to-earth girl, satisfied to live in the shadow of her brilliant brother Ben. She was simply the lanky girl who played basketball. But when Sarah visited Ben in Lubbock during spring break and met Tim Randall—life’s simplicities were forever changed. Now, fifteen years later, Sarah’s bond with her brother is gone and the sudden death of her husband has turned her world upside down. When Sarah receives word that her brother, now a renowned cottonseed breeder and research professor at Texas Tech University, is missing and his graduate assistant has been murdered, Sarah responds with a vengeance. She is confused and a little worried when a package arrives addressed to her brother and immediately heads to Texas to unravel the mystery. Sarah faces more confusion when she is reunited with Tim Randall—now an FBI agent investigating the case. Their quest for answers reveals Ben’s involvement in high stakes developments that could impact farming worldwide and potentially cost billions to current patent holders in seed and chemical markets. With so much at stake, Sarah fears for her brother’s life and ultimately her own. The search for her brother takes Sarah across the ocean to her father's homeland of Sweden—forcing her to face skeletons and feelings from her past while hesitantly trying to determine her future course. Sarah must learn to deal with grief and loss as she forges ahead in a life suddenly full of adventure and danger. Can she protect those she loves most without causing more hurt in the process? As the cotton grows and blossoms, can Sarah let go of the past to overcome her sorrow and guilt and finally reap her own personal harvest?
