Social workernbsp;nbsp;Josie sees her bruises distrusts thenbsp;nbsp;too-ambitious, too perfect Robert, and suspects the real causenbsp;nbsp;of the children's increasingly disturbed behavior.nbsp;nbsp;But not even Josie can pierce Lynn's wall ofnbsp;nbsp;silence, a wall that will not crumble until Lynn isnbsp;nbsp;forced to face herself-and the truth-at last. Belvanbsp;nbsp;Plain's searing novel of a family's heartbreak, anbsp;nbsp;woman's courage, and a subject too often talkednbsp;nbsp;about only in whispers.
