And at 28, married to an adoring older man, it seemed she had. Upon his deathbed, she promised to protect their young son by never revealing what she’d done. When, three years later, Celia finds true love with Alex Nolan, she keeps her vow until, as a surprise, he moves them into her childhood home where, painted on the lawn for all the world to see, are the words BEWARE—LITTLE LIZZIE’S PLACE.
