The riveting new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Liar.
“She stood in the deep, dark woods, breath shallow and cold prickling over her skin despite the hot, heavy air. She took a step back, then two, as the urge to run fell over her.”
Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.
Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.
Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she’s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

From the Hardcover edition.

    Always enjoy Nora Roberts books but this is hands down the b ext. not her typical romance ; which I love but this has more depth and her writing style is brilliant here; well done!
  • Saw it coming...

    ...but still a good read. The last trilogy seem to be as if Ms. Roberts had students write it. This is back to her usual, descriptive, funny, clever character development with a not-too-heavy plot, and satisfying ending. Finally, Nora - been waiting a long time for this quality.
