Robert and Lynn Ferguson are a picture-perfect couple with two beautiful daughters and a lovely home in an exclusive Connecticut community. Robert is on the fast track of a major corporation. Lynn is devoted to her family and good works. But in the Ferguson’s closed doors hide a painful secret Lynn must keep from the world-and her children-at any cost… Not even the Fergusons’s best friends, Josie and Bruce Lehman, know of Lynn’s shame. Social worker Josie sees her bruises distrusts the too-ambitious, too perfect Robert, and suspects the real cause of the children’s increasingly disturbed behavior. But not even Josie can pierce Lynn’s wall of silence, a wall that will not crumble until Lynn is forced to face herself-and the truth-at last. Belva Plain’s searing novel of a family’s heartbreak, a woman’s courage, and a subject too often talked about only in whispers.
