Why do I have it? I like Belva Plain as an author and have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.
To all appearances, the Fergusons have kept the facade of an idyllically happy family firmly intact. Not even their closest friends, Josie and Bruce Lehman know the entirety of Lynn’s shame. Social worker Josie has seen her bruises, distrusts the overly-ambitious, too-perfect Robert, and suspects the real cause of the children’s increasingly disturbed behavior. But not even Josie can pierce Lynn’s icy wall of silence, a wall that will not crumble until Lynn is forced to face herself – and the truth – at last.
I thought this book was absolutely excellent. The plot was very believable; I can imagine that such a scenario could, and perhaps does, happen to so many people – domestic abuse is probably much more prevalent than we expect. I give this book a definite A+!
A+! – (96-100%)
