Publisher's Summary

"Narrator January LaVoy brings a richly layered performance to a story.... She expertly handles the large cast of multigenerational characters"—AudioFile on Hideaway

The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Identity presents a suspenseful new novel of tragedy and trauma, love and family, and the evil that awaits.

As they do each June, the Foxes have driven the winding roads of Appalachia to drop off their children for a two-week stay at their grandmother’s. Here, twelve-year-old Thea can run free and breathe in the smells of pine and fresh bread and Grammie’s handmade candles. But as her parents head back to suburban Virginia, they have no idea they’re about to cross paths with a ticking time bomb.

Back in Kentucky, Thea and her grandmother Lucy both awaken from the same nightmare. And though the two have never discussed the special kind of sight they share, they know as soon as their tearful eyes meet that something terrible has happened.

The kids will be staying with Grammie now in Redbud Hollow, and thanks to Thea’s vision, their parents’ killer will spend his life in supermax. Over time, Thea will make friends, build a career, find love. But that ability to see into minds and souls still lurks within her, and though Grammie calls it a gift, it feels more like a curse—because the inmate who shattered her childhood has the same ability. Thea can hear his twisted thoughts and witness his evil acts from miles away. He knows it, and hungers for vengeance. A long, silent battle will be waged between them—and eventually bring them face to face, and head to head…

What the critics say

"Fans of Roberts’ enticing brand of storytelling will find everything they crave in her latest polished thriller, including compelling characters, an evocative, richly realized setting, and a captivating plot enlivened a generous dash of romance and just the right measure of nerve-jangling, nail-biting suspense. You don’t have to be a mind reader to predict Roberts’ latest will soon be on reserve and best-seller lists all around the country."—Booklist

"Roberts’ latest may move you to tears, or joy, or dread, or all three....A touching story of love and grief ends in an epic battle of good versus evil."—Kirkus Reviews (starred)

"Die-hard Roberts fans will get what they came for: there’s no shortage of romance, [or] cliffhangers..."—Publishers Weekly

A New Favourite from Nora

I've read or listened to a lot of Nora Roberts over the years with varying impressions - some I liked, some a little less so. This is definitely one of my favourites. From early in the book, seeing the aftermath of a horrible event from the victim's family's perspective and how they all have to figure out how to go on, to just the general story of their lives for the years following the events, with a bit of suspense mixed in. Some books I find daily life details of the characters tedious or distracting from the main story. Not so in this case. I loved every part of it and fully immersed myself in their lives and world. I am not sure if this will be a stand alone book, but I would sure like to revisit this little community and see what happens to some of the other side characters. These characters were people I really would have liked to know in real life. I really am sad the book ended. I also really enjoyed January LaVoy's narration. I thought she did a great job of all characters, from different generations, male, female and children.
