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.

This was a hit and miss for me. I finished it and while I enjoyed it if I had had any other books waiting for me I would have been drawn awhile easily. The beginning of the book draws you in. I enjoyed reading about Emily and Zane and his sister in the earlier years but I didn't feel any real connection between Zane and Darcy. One minute she's the Gardner and the next she's the leading lady with no build-up, no spark, no nada between them, just nothing. The takedown of Graham by Darcy was over so quickly. Threat from his past taken care of and them boom here comes the threat from her past. To neat, coincidental and no imagination. in the end, I finished the book and while it wasn't great it also wasn't horrible.

I loved this book. It is about family abuse and survival. I find Nora Roberts’ books easy to get into and she keeps you entertained through to the end.

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.
