A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Within the walls of a tasteful, tidy house in North Carolina, Zane Bigelow feels like a prisoner of war. People view his parents as a successful surgeon and a stylish wife, but Zane and his sister, Britt, know that something is terribly wrong. As his father's violent rages - and his mother's complicity - become more oppressive, Zane yearns to escape. When the cracks in the facade finally shatter, Zane realizes that some people will face painful truths. As he matures and builds a new kind of family, Zane recognizes that while the darkness of his past shadows him, it also shows him how good can triumph - and provides him with the strength to defend himself and his loved ones.
