Description



About the Book



From a critically acclaimed author comes a provocative, powerful, and deeply moving story. A legacy of secrets connects the birth of one little boy, where, if the truth is revealed, the consequences will be unimaginable for the adoptive mother who loves him, the girl who had tried to protect him, and the two sisters who hold the key to all that is hidden.



Book Synopsis



When teenager Allison Glenn is sent to prison for a heinous crime, she leaves behind her reputation as Linden Falls' golden girl forever. Her parents deny the existence of their once-perfect child. Her former friends exult her downfall. Her sister, Brynn, faces whispered rumors every day in the hallways of their small Iowa high school. It's Brynn--shy, quiet Brynn--who carries the burden of what really happened that night. All she wants is to forget Allison and the past that haunts her.

But then Allison is released to a halfway house, and is more determined than ever to speak with her estranged sister.

Now their legacy of secrets is focused on one little boy. And if the truth is revealed, the consequences will be unimaginable for the adoptive mother who loves him, the girl who tried to protect him and the two sisters who hold the key to all that is hidden.
