The Deepest Secret

(2014)
A novel by

 
What if you did something unforgivable - and had to live with it? This intimate, page-turning family drama for readers of Jodi Picoult explores the profound power of the truths we're scared to face . . . about our marriages, our children, and ourselves.

Eve Lattimore is barely keeping things together. Her husband works fifteen hundred miles away, leaving Eve to juggle singlehandedly the demands of their teenaged daughter and fragile son. Tyler was born with XP - the so-called vampire disease: even one moment of sun exposure can have fatal consequences. So Eve does what any mother might do: she turns their home into a fortress. Every day, she watches the sun rise and fall, and keeps a close eye on her child. Friendships fall away. Her marriage is on the rocks. Her daughter's going through something but won't talk about it. Still, Eve believes that it's all a matter of time before a cure is found, and everything can resume its normal course.

Until the night she makes a terrible decision, and it's not only the sun she has to hide from.
