With one book already announced (under her pen name, J.D Robb), Nora Roberts adds to her 2019 release schedule with Under Currents, her latest standalone novel written in the vein of Shelter in Place (2018).
While Eve Dallas is set to return February 5th in Connections in Death, her 48th go-around, in fact, Roberts will continue her trend of putting out a summer release too with Under Currents, a touching story about one family’s power to harm and heal. Check out the official cover art and plot details below!
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel about the power of family to harm―and to heal.
Within the walls of a tasteful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, young Zane Bigelow feels like a prisoner of war. Strangers―and even Zane’s own aunt across the lake―see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children’s ballet recitals and baseball games. Zane and his sister know the truth: There is something terribly wrong.
As his father’s violent, controlling rages―and his mother’s complicity―become more and more oppressive, Zane counts the years, months, days until he can escape. He looks out for little Britt, warning her Be smart. Be careful. In fear for his very life, he plays along with the insidious lie that everything is fine, while scribbling his real thoughts in a secret journal he must carefully hideaway.
When one brutal, shattering night finally reveals cracks in the façade, Zane begins to understand that some people are willing to face the truth, even when it hurts. As he grows into manhood and builds a new kind of family, he will find that while the darkness of his past may always shadow him, it will also show him what is necessary for good to triumph―and give him strength to draw on when he once again must stand up and defend himself and the ones he loves . . .
