From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel about
the power of family to harmâ€”and to heal.
In a perfectly
kept house in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, young
Zane Bigelow feels like a prisoner of war. Outsiders see his
parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making
appearances at their children's ballet recitals and
baseball games. But Zane and his sister know there is
something terribly wrong.
As his father's violent,
controlling ragesâ€”and his mother's complicityâ€”grow more
oppressive, Zane counts the days until he can escape. He
looks out for little Britt, warning her Be smart. Be
careful. In fear for his life, he plays along with the
insidious lie that everything is fine, while scribbling his
real thoughts in a secret journal carefully hidden away.
When one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the faĂ§ade,
Zane begins to understand that some people are willing to
face the truth, even when it hurts. As he grows into manhood
and builds a new kind of family, he will find that while the
darkness of his past may always shadow him, it will also
show him what is necessary for good to triumphâ€”and give him
strength to draw on when he once again must stand up and
defend himself and the ones he loves.
