Synopsis

Synopsis

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.

About Belva Plain

Belva Plain - Whispers
Belva Plain captured readers' hearts with her first novel, Evergreen, which Delacorte published more than 30 years ago. It topped the New York Times best-seller list for 41 weeks and aired as an NBC-TV miniseries. In total, more than 20 of her books have been New York Times best sellers.
 
Before becoming a novelist,  Belva Plain wrote short stories for many major magazines, but taking care of a husband and three children did not give her the time to concentrate on the novel she had always wanted to write. When she looked back and said she didn't have the time, she felt as though she had been making excuses. In retrospect, she said, "I didn't make the time." But, she reminded us, during the era that she was raising her family, women were supposed to concentrate only on their children. Today 30 million copies of her books are in print.
 
A Barnard College graduate who majored in history,  Belva Plain enjoyed a wonderful marriage of more than 40 years to Irving Plain, an ophthalmologist. Widowed for more than 25 years, Ms. Plain continued to reside in New Jersey, where she and her husband had raised their family and which was still home to her nearby children and grandchildren until her death in October 2010.
