Tessa Ramsey has always yearned for a wise and loving father, someone like Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird. Her father's career as a surgeon left little time for her. Then after serving as an army doctor in Vietnam, the two are even farther apart. It takes a chilling confrontation with an older boy to bring father and daughter together again.
