The latest book from Wendy James takes the reader back into that closed world of family relationships that this author delves into frequently.

Jane worships her older cousin Angie. She spends her summer vying for Angie's attention. Then Angie is murdered. Jane and her family are shattered. They withdraw into themselves, casting a veil of silence over Angie's death.
