Summary
The McNair children, Kevin, Amy, Liz, and Brian, have been raised to believe that family is the most important thing in the world, and when both of their parents die unexpectedly, they take whatever steps necessary to stay together, and become trapped in their own web of lies
Summary
It started with a promise, a pact. It became a secret that no one must tell: that their parents were dead and gone, including the one they'd buried in the backyard. Now the McNair children are growing older, discovering love, college, and careers. But their lie haunts them. Their home holds them captive. Only the horrifying truth of their mother's death can set the children free. And only the truth can destroy them all
