During that time, Owen's son Bruce has grown into a handsome high school senior, and Linda's daughter Emily has come to love her new family. Both children are at a boarding school they love; Owen and Linda, novelists, work at home on Owen's beautiful Massachusetts farm.Just before Thanksgiving, Emily attempts suicide and is taken to a local psychiatric ward. Emily confesses that in late summer, Bruce raped her. Bruce swears he did not. Who is lying? Who is telling the truth? There is no way to prove either child's statement. Owen and Linda must believe their children and change their entire lives accordingly.
