Summary:
"Reina Castillo is [an] alluring young woman whose beloved brother is serving a death sentence for a crime that shocked the community: throwing a baby off a bridge--a crime for which Reina secretly blames herself. With her brother's death, though devastated and in mourning, Reina is finally released from her prison vigil.
