9780385316866: Secrecy

A compelling story filled with Belva Plain's signature storytelling genius, Secrecy is a novel about layers of hidden truths and an unspoken subject: rape. It focuses on three women: the mother of the teenage girl who was raped, the mother of the boy who committed the crime, and the girl herself, who becomes a brilliant architect. When her first major project is abruptly halted, exposing long-dormant secrets and deceptions, the lives of many people will be forever changed.

With her extraordinary narrative abilities and her finger on the pulse of contemporary issues, Belva Plain once again has produced a provocative, powerful new novel.

From the Back Cover:

FIRST CAME THE SIN. THEN THE LIES.

He was handsome, charming, irresistible, and an eighteen-year-old lady-killer, her uncle Cliff's stepson, Ted. But in one terrible afternoon he would shatter the life of fourteen-year-old Charlotte Dawes and nearly destroy her family. Years afterward, Charlotte would remember that day with fear and loathing, with pain that could be banished only by her work as a gifted architect, building a new world for others as she conceals her own.

For Charlotte's family, prime employers in a New England mill town, what happened to Charlotte was the beginning of the cover-up, the beginning of the end. Her father is left shattered by his daughter's pain. Her troubled mother is unable to cope. And her distinguished family has fallen from grace, plunged into debt. The only rock that sustains them in their darkest hours is a woman whose own guilty secret has given her the power to ruin -- or resurrect -- the family to whom she owes her life.
