The dark sides of marriage, motherhood, and friendship
Doting wife Merry, devoted husband Sam, and cherished child Conor are the perfect family in the perfect house. Merry adores the domestic life: baking, gardening, caring for her infant son. Sam, formerly an academic, pursues a new filmmaking career. Sometimes they can hardly believe what perfect lives they've built.
When Merry's childhood friend Frank visits their Swedish paradise, she immediately bonds with Conor. And with Sam. She befriends the neighbors, and embraces the domesticity she's always scorned.
All their lives, Frank and Merry have been more like sisters than best friends. And that's why Frank sees the things others might miss. Treacherous things, almost impossible to believe when looking at this perfect family.

“Has the voyeuristic fascination of a Bergman film.”—Publishers Weekly
“I was, in turn, totally gripped, completely unsettled, and not just a little freaked out by these brutal characters and the damage they did to themselves and each other.”—Lisa Unger
“The savage beauty of Michelle Sacks's prose nestled within the most chilling of stories will leave you shaken and bereft. It is a stunning accomplishment.”—Heather Gudenkauf
