From the New York Times bestselling author of All the Ugly And Wonderful Things, a propulsive new novel about a Kansas woman who discovers redemption--and love--when she joins forces with a surprising champion in her race to save her broken family. Zee doesn't consider herself anyone's heroine. Almost six-foot with orange hair and a bum hip, most of her waking hours are spent worrying: about never-ending bills, her gullible, beautiful sister, her five-year-old nephew, and her housebound mother. To Gentry, Zee is the ultimate heroine. They first met two years ago, when the voices Gentry hears called him to be Zee's champion. Though they've barely spoken since, Gentry has kept watch, ready to come to her aid as a modern-day-knight in shining armor. Then Zee's sister is taken hostage during a violent escape at the prison where she volunteers. To protect her family, Zee turns to the last person she ever imagined--Gentry. With the authorities no closer to finding her sister, she decides to take matters into her own hands and, with Gentry at her side, sets in motion a series of events that will alter their lives, and those of everyone they love, forever. From the New York Times bestselling author of All the Ugly and Wonderful Things comes a newly provocative love story between the unlikeliest of people, and a tale of one woman's crooked path to redemption.

Set against the backdrop of the comfortable life of a seemingly happy and prosperous Jewish family, the story of how a little girl-smart, talented, and eager to please-was repeatedly molested by her maternal grandfather and then by one of his friends strikes at the heart of the tradition of safety and comfort and the sanctity of the family itself. Jenny's recounting of her childhood-with her beautiful bedroom, dance lessons, and childhood friends and activities, interspersed with her for-many-years-suppressed memories of her violation by her grandfather-is shocking and infuriating. How could a trusted family member do such things to a little girl, his precious first grandchild? Her painful childhood is followed by years of confusion, sexual acting out, and addiction, all the fruit of that terrible violation. When she begins the long and difficult process of recovery, we root for her, even as we rail against the terrible reason for all her pain. Finally, as we see her emerge from the dark wood, we cheer for her and begin to understand that victims can become more than what happened to them: they can, as Jenny has, move forward under their own power and find peace and maybe even a little justice. This story of Jenny's struggles, her insights, her determination, and her triumph will be a powerful inspiration to all.
