From the Editor

I am intrigued by family secrets, and in this mesmeric novel, David Basil Walker is an old man on his deathbed, haunted by secrets he needs to confess. When his granddaughter Elle learns of his existence, someone she thought was long dead, she finds him full of regret, sadness and stories he insists he must tell her.

His ‘stories’ hint at the decisions he made and the actions that forever changed the course of his family’s life. Elle’s life is turned upside down by these disturbing family secrets and, determined to find the truth, she goes back to the people and the places that might help her reconcile her feelings and face her fear of her own future.

David and Elle are both compelling characters to me. One looking backwards, feeling distress and guilt, one looking forwards filled with the fear she might walk the same path for reasons beyond her control.

What kept me turning these pages were the universal questions we ask ourselves. Are we destined to repeat the mistakes of our forefathers? Can we forgive the unforgivable? Who am I really? Does killing someone make you a murderer? Okay, maybe that last one isn’t as universal, but it certainly kept me riveted by this fine read.

- Danielle Marshall, Editor


Product description

Product Description

A spellbinding novel about an unspeakable secret that could destroy a family, from the New York Times bestselling author of Finding Emma.

Elle is a survivor. She’s managed to piece together a solid life from a childhood of broken memories and fairy tales her mom told her to explain away bad dreams. But weekly visits to her mother still fill Elle with a paralyzing fear she can’t explain. It’s just another of so many unanswered questions she grew up with in a family estranged by silence and secrets.

Elle’s world turns upside down when she receives a deathbed request from her grandfather, a man she was told had died years ago. Racked by grief, regrets, and a haunted conscience, he has a tale of his own to tell Elle: about her mother, an imaginary friend, and two strangers who came to the house one night and never left.

As Elle’s past unfolds, so does the truth—if she can believe it. She must face the reasons for her inexplicable dread. As dark as they are, Elle must listen…before her grandfather’s death buries the family’s secrets forever.
