Summary:
 
Robert and Lynn Ferguson are a picture-perfect couple  with two beautiful daughters and a lovely home in  an exclusive Connecticut community. Robert is on  the fast track of a major corporation. Lynn is  devoted to her family and good works. But in the  Ferguson's closed doors hide a painful secret Lynn must  keep from the world-and her children-at any  cost... Not even the Fergusons's best friends, Josie and  Bruce Lehman, know of Lynn's shame. Social worker  Josie sees her bruises distrusts the  too-ambitious, too perfect Robert, and suspects the real cause  of the children's increasingly disturbed behavior.  But not even Josie can pierce Lynn's wall of  silence, a wall that will not crumble until Lynn is  forced to face herself-and the truth-at last. Belva  Plain's searing novel of a family's heartbreak, a  woman's courage, and a subject too often talked  about only in whispers.

Everyone turned to Emily. there was a fraction of a second's silence, no longer a collective indrawn breath, as if the for adults had simultaneously been struck by an awareness of the girl's beauty in her yellow dress, with her black silk hair flowing out under a cherry colored bandeau and the shaft of evening sunshine on her eager face.

  4. I'm actually more intrigued by the blurb. I haven't read Belva Plain in years and I don't think I read this one. Is it dated, or has it held up?
