Zane Bigelow grew up in a beautiful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Strangers and even Zane’s own aunt across the lake see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children’s ballet recitals and baseball games. Only Zane and his sister know the truth, until one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the facade, and Zane escapes for college without a thought of looking back....
Huge Nora Roberts fan

I loved this story, but I have to admit some of the abuse scenes got to me. They may be difficult for some readers. Darby and Zane are both very likable characters, as are several of the quirky secondary characters. I did find the end somewhat predictable, as it followed Nora Roberts’ “formula”, however there were several surprises and I felt like she pulled it all together well. I’m kind of disappointed it’s over already.
