Summary
A heart-stopping tale of twisted obsession from the author who gives us "everything we love in a thriller" (O, The Oprah Magazine) The MacBrides lead a cozy life of upper class privilege: good looks (more or less), a beautiful home, tuition-free education at the prestigious private school where Rowan is headmaster, an altruistic righteousness inherited from magistrate Lydia. But when Rowan and his three grown children gather for the first time since Lydia's passing at the family's weekend home--a restored barn in the English countryside--years of secrets surface, and they discover a stranger in their midst. A stranger who is convinced that Lydia was a murderer. A stranger who has been exacting vengeance upon the family for years without their ever knowing. And one who will threaten the youngest MacBride, baby Edie, and the clan's memory of Lydia, shattering their world forever
Summary
Old wounds and long-buried family secrets come crashing down on the seemingly untouchable MacBride clan not long after matriarch Lydia MacBride dies. Connecting everything is a mysterious confession in Lydia's extensive diaries and an outsider bent on exacting terrible revenge on the MacBrides. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
