Both Delaney and Nick are after title to Ladd Springs, a mecca of natural springs, streams and trails in the eastern Tennessee mountains, a tract of land worth millions. But Delaney’s uncle, Ernie Ladd, owns the property and is adamantly opposed to them both.

Delaney’s daughter, Felicity Wilkins, deserves to inherit her family’s legacy, but neighbor Clem Sweeney is working against her, ingratiating himself with Ernie Ladd. Clem is also harboring a secret that will make him a very wealthy man — unless the others stop him before he can bring it to fruition.

Complicating matters is Annie Owens. She’s the ex-girlfriend of Jeremiah Ladd, Ernie’s estranged son living in Atlanta. Annie declares that her daughter Casey is Jeremiah’s, making Casey every bit as entitled to the property as Felicity, only Annie has not proven this claim. Yet.

All are fighting to get the property, but only one will walk away with the gold. Who will it be?
