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 underZane 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―se. Under Currents by Nora Roberts is a 2019 St Martin s Press publication Tense and Edgy Nora Roberts style This is an intense novel of suspense from start to finish However it is also a novel about resilience and the power of family and love Zane escapes from his abusive parents with the help of his aunt who then gives Zane and his sister a loving home life Blossoming into a well adjusted and successful adult Zane builds a wonderful life for himself But then the shadows of the past rise from the ashes and Zane realizes his battle with pure evil is not yet overNora Roberts is so prolific and versatile I read my fair share of her books mainly her romantic suspense novels before Goodreads but with so many authors and genres to sample I rarely reach for a Nora Roberts book any Yet I know that when the mood strikes any book of hers will be a dependable solid storyUnder Currents is exactly that solid and dependable The good versus evil theme is hard to beat The bad guys are truly horrifying and some passages are hard to read I loved Zane and his family and their values and ethics The first few chapters are difficult and riveting but from there the suspense comes from the knowledge that evil lurks in the corners and shadows our heroes can t see However an ultimate showdown is comingWhile much of what transpires here has been done before at least to some extent in other novels of suspense Roberts manages to keep the predictability at bay hitting the reader with a surprise or two they probably won t see coming The subject matter is one that is than relevant and breaking the cycle is an important messageThis was a pretty uick read for me because I had a hard time putting the book down I am also reminded of how much I enjoy reading Nora Roberts books and will try not to wait so long to add another one to my list 4 starsPossible triggers domestic and child abuse as well as a little out of context language

Nora Roberts ä 6 Summary

Etermined 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 lo. From the outside view the Bigelows of Lakeview North Carolina look like the ideal family Graham Bigelow is the chief of surgery at the local hospital wife Eliza is the perfect stay at home affluent mother involved in many charities son Zane is a baseball phenom destined for a sports scholarship and possibly the big leagues and young Britt couldn t be a obedient daughter But behind the proverbial closed doors is a somewhat different and troubling view because Graham is mean abusive and incredibly sly about it The story begins here in Zane s voice and continues for almost two decades Then enter newcomer Darby McCray a talented landscape designer who takes the town and Zane by storm with her incredible vision and infectious personality though she s got her own sad history It s a three part story with the first devoted to Zane s harrowing childhood The subject of abuse is addressed from all angles and perspectives horrifying and educating me in ways I hadn t anticipated It was riveting stuff that was hard to listen to and imagine but I couldn t put the story down because the outcome was too important This part of the story needed a hero and I had to wait it out The transition to Zane s adulthood and Darby s later introduction was the balm I needed for the next phase with its strong family and community themes I could have stayed there much longer but the sense of foreboding for the last part of the story loomed It was dangerous and the threat was always there even though it lacked the suspense surrounding the sources of it all I loved this story in large part because of Roberts skill in tackling a tough subject with honesty and forthright She didn t pull any punches even when I begged for it Also January LaVoy is one of my favorite narrators who delivered her expected outstanding performance She put me into every scene Lastly I really liked Darby and Zane individually and as a couple their romance a slow but lovely burn Even though the suspense was lacking the uality of the story than compensated for me It is uintessential Nora Roberts storytelling 45 stars
