Three strangers find their lives entwined when a murder investigation shocks the town of Lake Henry. Heather Malone is known in Lake Henry for her kind, gentle nature; but when the FBI takes her into custody, purportedly for murder, the local reaction is stunned disbelief. Poppy Blake -- riddled with guilt over the accident that claimed the life of her male companion and left her crippled -- is struggling to rebuild her life. Writer Griffin Hughes originally traveled to Lake Henry to investigate a national news story involving Lily Blake, Poppy's older sister. It is his chance comment to his brother -- an FBI agent -- that leads the law to Heather. To redeem himself Griffin is compelled to solve the mystery of Heather's past. An Accidental Woman celebrates the values of community, friendship, and the redemptive power of love.
