They used to be a happy family. Then her daughter accused his son. . .of rape.

Writers Owen and Linda McFarland have been incredibly happy for seven years. During that time they've worked hard to make his son Bruce and her daughter Emily part of a real family on their Massachusetts farm. Now handsome Bruce is a high school senior with a girlfriend he is crazy about. Pretty Emily is a sophomore at the same boarding school.

Then shortly before Thanksgiving, Emily tries to kill herself.

Confined to a private hospital, a sullen, angry Emily says Bruce raped her. He swears he didn't. One of them is lying. Finding out the truth may tear apart a lifetime of illusions, and a marriage-- in a story about stepfamilies and secrets, trust and love that will touch your heart...
