Sins of the Father

As the fallout from J.R. Simmons death begins to settle, some of the victims are still dealing with the results of that deadly night.

Rose mourns the changes in her life and struggles to move on.

Neely Kate is devastated when Joe leaves Henryetta two weeks after his father’s death and refuses to speak to her.

Joe is left dealing with his father’s business and the consequent FBI investigation, while he wonders where he belongs.

But when Rose’s former neighbor’s family dog runs away, Neely Kate convinces Rose to look for the pet and both discover a few things about themselves along the way.
