With his character unquestioned, and having never committed a crime, Skip Haywood was arrested because he fit the profile of a serial rapist. After three months in a county jail without plumbing, and ignored by his so-called friends, he was very bitter when released. A police lieutenant’s relentless investigation proved he was not the rapist. Skip sold everything he owned and left the city he was born in to move to Vermont. His plans were to live the life of a recluse. This was not to be. Circumstances brought out questions he wanted suppressed forever. Suspicion brought questions of a past that wasn’t true. He had to prove himself again and again. He avoided making friends until an accident happened on his property to a young girl. After redemption, again, he found the girl’s aunt had stirred a feeling he thought had died with his wife.
