A haunting and suspensful tale, THE LUCKY ONES explores the gray area between good and evil and one woman's desperate search for truth in a past full of secrets and lies. Allison is a woman with secrets from her past: a mysterious accident, a lost family, a clandestine medical procedure that changed the course of her life-and those of the other "lucky" children-far more than she ever realised…
They called themselves 'the lucky ones'.
They were seven children either orphaned or abandoned by their parents and chosen by legendary philanthropist and brain surgeon Dr Vincent Capello to live in his idyllic beach house on the Oregon Coast. Allison was the youngest of the lucky ones living a blissful life with her newfound family…until the night she almost died, and was then whisked away from her adopted family forever.
Now, thirteen years later, Allison receives a letter from Roland, Dr Capello's oldest son, warning her that their father is ill and in his final days. Allison decides she must go home again and confront the ghosts of her past. She's determined to find out what really happened that fateful night–was it an accident or, as she's always suspected, did one of her beloved family members try to kill her?
But digging into the past can reveal horrific truths, and when Allison pieces together the story of her life, she learns the terrible secret at the heart of the family she once loved but never really knew.
A vivid and suspenseful tale of family, grief, love and the dark secrets that bind everything together. Tiffany Reisz's latest novel is enthralling to the final page.
