Liza Gyllenhaal is "a gifted new writer"* who's captivated readers with her talent for "plumb[ing] the complexity of human emotions."** Now she delivers a piercing new novel about the secrets and lies that could shatter a close-knit family...

Brook Bostock has led a privileged life. The daughter of an extremely wealthy and prominent family, she married the man of her dreams and is raising two deeply loved children. But her happy home is shattered when a neighborhood teenager is assaulted during a night of drinking with the Bostocks' son and his prep school friends.

The scandal receives national attention--not only because of Brook's family name, but because of the lawsuit looming against Brook and her husband, Michael, that alleges they are responsible for what went on in their house. Suddenly the small Massachusetts town they call home seems to be turning against them, revealing the simmering jealousies and resentments that have been lurking under the surface all along.

With their once-perfect family in danger of falling apart, Brook and Michael must find a way to get through this together--or risk losing everything they love...
