When Penny Parker runs away from her miserable home life, her troubles have only begun. Living on the streets of Chicago brings fear and desperation until she meets and marries Jason. Life is finally good. Or is it? Nothing is as it appears to be. Motherhood, murder and the mafia shape her existence. Even a friendly farmer has a dark side. She is marked for murder, but by whom? She no longer knows whom to trust, especially when even the FBI can’t seem to protect her.
