Within the walls of a tasteful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, young Zane Bigelow feels like a prisoner of war. When one brutal, shattering night finally reveals cracks in the façade, Zane begins to understand that some people are willing to face the truth, even when it hurts. As he grows into manhood and builds a new kind of family, he will find that while the darkness of his past may always shadow him, it will also show him what is necessary for good to triumph.

Loved it! Gets your attention from the start!

Nora Roberts book was about landscaping! Overcoming abuse with a little revenge late in the book sums this story up. I got very tired of details on the type of flowers and trees she was planting. The reviews on this book were over rated.

A fairly easy, fairly interesting read though also fairly predictable. I have to say too that I found the characters rather pollyannaish, and, yes, that includes the men. On the other hand, the two protagonists tipped the other end of the scale as rather over-the-top brutish. There was a lot of eye rolling throughout - mine!

Informative about family abuse.
I thought too much repetitive detail through out and wanted to say we get it.
With the detailed description of the gardening work, it felt like I had read this before
either in one of her books or another one.
Interesting enough that I finished it.

My first Nora Roberts novel. A real saga about the lives affected by domestic violence. A beautiful setting with enough suspense and crime to keep be interested.

A nice easy thriller. It feels slightly less cookie cutter than the typical Nora Roberts thriller - there's a fair bit of character development, however I found Darby's storyline was a little underdeveloped.

Love all her books but this one jumped around with multiple people, times, villains,etc. making it my least favorite to date. Sorry to make any negative comments, but this is not up to her usual high standards.

This NR book is better than the last one. It has four parts. Part one and three are good. Part two seems rushed as the author doesn't really develop the female character as she does the male, which is a shame. The character of Darby is a bit forced in to the story, when she is introduced. The last section, could be from anyone of NR's books. Even the dialogue has been recycled, which is too bad as part one was quite good. Overall decent read.

This was a better read than NR's previous book. The plot was better put together, and NR didn't get overly hung up on interior design. I adore how both characters grew into their relationship and their relationships with the people around them.

The last part of the plot did feel a little bit rushed, but overall, a decent read.
