Publisher's Summary

"If you ever say anything to anyone, they all die."

When eight-year-old Greer Donner falls off his horse in the Washington wilderness, he braces himself to face the long hike home alone. But screams pierce the darkness, and he stumbles upon a dead-end road where a man is beating a woman - nearly to death. In a moment of courage, he stops the assault, but he's left to face the man, who turns his wrath into an ominous threat: if the boy ever reveals what he has seen, his family will pay the ultimate price. The secret Greer now carries begins his emotional unraveling.

In Seattle, Gillian Trett is a photographer with a troubled marriage and a childhood she's trying to forget. Domestic tension mounts when her husband's stepsister arrives. Desperate for a distraction, and a way to advance her career, Gillian throws herself into uncovering the history behind an old man's Holocaust photo of boys in a forest. The mysterious children and the truth behind the scene haunt her - she can't let go of the image, or of her own shadowed past.

Then a horrifying revelation entangles Gillian's path with young Greer's. The boy and the woman, separated by a generation and 100 miles, each confront the terrible power of harbored secrets - not only to eclipse the truth but also to illuminate the dark, unknown dimensions of their loved ones and themselves.

    "I wish this book was as interesting as the descrip"

    This book started out good then quickly went down hill. The story skipped around and just did not flow well. I couldn't wait to be finished with this book. I won't be reading anything else by this author because her writing is just not that good.
