A New York Times Bestselling Author
The Hope family murders shocked the Maine coast in 1929. While most people assume seventeen-year-old Lenora was responsible, the police were never able to prove it. It's now 1983, and home-health aide Kit McDeere arrives to care for Lenora after her previous nurse fled in the middle of the night. In her seventies, Lenora was rendered mute by a series of strokes and can only communicate with Kit by tapping out sentences on a typewriter. One night, Lenora uses it to make an offer - I want to tell you everything. As Kit helps Lenora write about the events leading to the Hope family massacre, Kit starts to suspect Lenora might be far more dangerous than she first thought.
