"From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel about the power of family to harm--and to heal. Within the walls of a tasteful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, young Zane Bigelow feels like a prisoner of war. 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. Zane and his sister know the truth: There is something terribly wrong. As his father's violent, controlling rages--and his mother's complicity--become more and more oppressive, Zane counts the years, months, days until he can escape. He looks out for little Britt, warning her: Be smart; Be careful. In fear for his very life, he plays along with the insidious lie that everything is fine, while scribbling his real thoughts in a secret journal he must carefully hide away. When one brutal, shattering night finally reveals cracks in the façade, Zane begins to understand that some people are willing to face the truth, even when it hurts. As he grows into manhood and builds a new kind of family, he will find that while the darkness of his past may always shadow him, it will also show him what is necessary for good to triumph--and give him strength to draw on when he once again must stand up and defend himself and the ones he loves..."--… (més)

Good story about childhood abuse and escaping from it and building a successful life. ( )

As with most of NR's new work, she recycles her characters...Zane had childhood trauma and now lives in a fancy house on the hill, recalling Naomi in Obsession. Kevin the contractor in Obsession also has a role in Under Currents, this time as Darby, the landscaping love interest. Nevertheless, they aren't so similar as to be annoying (ahem, Inn Boonsboro trilogy) and they star in an engaging story and a lovely depiction of North Carolina high country. ( )

Ok so this book is my very first Nora Roberts book ever. That said it didn't live up to the hype. I wanted to read this book the moment I saw it. The cover is gorgeous and the blurb was very promising. Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. The book has 4 parts. And Part 1 was AMAZING. I would easily give the first part 5 stars. But it just didn't hold from there. It got less and less interesting and more boring. Even the parts of the book that were suppose to be nail biting and heart pounding, weren't.
Now for the romance. It also fell short for me. While I loved Zane and his character, as both a teen and an adult. Darby I didn't really like. I'm not sure why. I should like her, I know this. She is peppy and happy and tough, self sufficient, and a strong female character, but something about her puts me off and in the end I just don't like her. So the entire romance falls apart on that alone. Plus the whole thing came around to easily. It wasn't really insta-love but there wasn't even a little bit of angst in there to really bring it together when they DID get together.
All in all I wouldn't say that this experience has thrown me from trying more books but this author, cause it hasn't. I already have a book by her I want to read soon, but I was just expecting so much more I suppose. ( )

Typical Nora Roberts, which is a good thing. I liked the plot.

The book's one drawback, IMO, was that there were too many characters. I couldn't tell her employees from his employees from his niece and nephew, etc. I got tired of trying to look them up. ( )

CW: Child abuse, spousal abuse, rape, assault

If any of the above give you nightmares or flashbacks or anything like PTSD, avoid this book. The hero's parents are abusive. The heroine's ex was abusive. There is a side plotline with an abused wife. Everyone is looking for peace unless they're looking for revenge.

That being said... as always, Nora writes good fiction. I rooted for the two main characters and all their assorted family and friends. I adored the strength and badassery people attained. I enjoyed that communication was always open and honest and no one was running around on plot misconceptions.

The small town felt a little over the top. The villains were irredeemable and didn't feel completely human to me. I'm glad everyone that deserves it gets their HEA. I wish they had not had to go through all that crap to get there. ( )
