Under Currents
A Novel

For both Zane and Darby, their small town roots hold a terrible secret. Now, decades later, they've come together to build a new life. But will the past set them free or pull them under? Find out in Under Currents from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts.

Zane Bigelow grew up in a beautiful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. Strangers and even Zane's own aunt across the lake see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children's ballet recitals and baseball games. Only Zane and his sister know the truth, until one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the facade, and Zane escapes for college without a thought of looking back...

Years later, Zane returns to his hometown determined to reconnect with the place and people that mean so much to him, despite the painful memories. As he resumes life in the colorful town, he meets a gifted landscape artist named Darby, who is on the run from ghosts of her own.

Together they will have to teach each other what it means to face the past, and stand up for the ones they love.

    Roberts (Shelter in Place) cleverly blends the past into the present as abuse survivors discover the healing power of love. Zane Bigelow and his sister, Britt, grew up in the wealthy Lakeview Terrace development in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Their father, Graham, a prominent physician, physically abused them, abetted by his wife, Eliza. At 15, Zane stood up to his father and went to the police; Graham and Eliza were imprisoned. Years later, Darby McCray leaves the suburbs of Baltimore and her abusive husband to relocate to Lakeview and build her landscaping business there; Zane also returns to Lakeview from Raleigh and decides to set up a small private practice as an attorney. When Zane and Darby meet, sparks ignite. As she sells him on the amazing landscaping she can provide for his new home, he’s drawn to her pure beauty and kind, friendly nature. Their relationship becomes more serious, and Darby becomes a beloved part of the community, but threats from the past come back to haunt Zane and his newfound happiness. Roberts’s latest is full of powerful, magnetic characters who have overcome terrible situations. Suspense and sensual romance are expertly combined in this riveting story.

  • AudioFile Magazine January LaVoy gives a gripping performance of contrasting personalities and voices. Zane seems to have the perfect family, but what lies beneath are undercurrents of violence and lies. The illusion shatters one terrifying night, and Zane and his sister escape. Years later he returns to his hometown and connects with newcomer Darby, who's running from her own scary past. Can the two find happiness together despite their fears? Zane and his sister's voices as adults sound deeper and self-assured, but LaVoy stays true to the cadences and personalities first introduced. Zane's father projects a confidence and persuasive tone to outsiders and a quiet coldness that surges into yelling at home. LaVoy give Darby a satisfying Yankee accent and plucky demeanor that contrast with Zane's warm Southern drawl. A.L.C. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
