When Linda McFarland's daughter attempts suicide and then accuses Owen McFarland's son (her stepbrother) of raping her, the happily married couple find their lives torn apart at the seams

Blackwell North Amer
Linda and Owen McFarland have been happily married for seven years. During that time, Owen's son Bruce has grown into a handsome, confident high school senior, and Linda's daughter Emily has come to care deeply for her new family. Both teenagers are at a boarding school they love; Owen and Linda, novelists, work at home on their beautiful Massachusetts farm. But then the unthinkable happens. Just before Thanksgiving vacation, Emily attempts suicide. Confined to a psychiatric ward, Emily reveals that Bruce raped her. Bruce swears he didn't. One of them is lying - but who?
Owen and Linda face difficult decisions as their storybook family tears apart. Which bond is stronger: husband-to-wife or parent-to-child? Can any marriage withstand this level of strain and betrayal? What about their marriage?
