About the Book

The perfect home.

The perfect family.

The perfect lie.

Jane Harris lives in a sparkling home in an oceanfront gated community in Orange County. It's a place that seems too beautiful to be touched by sadness. But exactly one year ago, Jane's eldest daughter, Mary, died in a tragic accident, and Jane has been grief-stricken ever since. Lost in a haze of antidepressants, she's barely even left the house...until now.

As Jane reemerges into the world, it's clear she's missed a lot in the last year. Her husband has been working long days - and nights - at the office. Her daughter Betsy seems distant, even secretive. And Jane receives a note warning her that Mary's death wasn't an accident. What really happened on the day that Mary died? And who is lying to whom in this family?

The bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives should never be broken. But you never know how far someone will go to keep a family together...
