Malachi 'Mal' July's reputation as a player is making trouble for him, even though he's now a recovering alcoholic trying to redeem himself in the eyes of his family and the citizens of Henry Adams, Kansas. He's turning his diner into a profitable business, and mentors the town's foster kids. And he's even staying true to one woman-- Bernadine Brown. But all it takes is a moment of pride for Mal to betray his friends and family, and lose Bernadine's trust and love. Will he ever be able to win her forgiveness? -- adapted from jacket.
