For fans of Jodi Picoult comes an enthralling domestic thriller about the lies we tell, and let ourselves believe, in the name of love.

Arden and Rory have always been close, but they have secrets they've never shared, secrets that reel all the way back to their childhoods, and which led them to that tragic night. Who set the fire, and why? As the police dig deep into both the present and the past, Natalie realizes that in order to protect her daughter, she'll first have to find out who Arden really is, even if it means risking everything—and everyone—she loves most.
