Before We Were Strangers:  Brenda Novak

Five-year-old Sloane McBride couldn't sleep that night. Her parents were arguing again, their harsh words heating the cool autumn air. And then there was the ominous thump before all went quiet. In the morning, her mother was gone. The official story was that she left, but Sloane didn't believe it. Not as a child and not when she moved out at eighteen. Even a fresh start working as a model in New York couldn't quell her fears that the domineering father she grew up with wasn't just difficult - he was deadly. Now another traumatic loss forces Sloane to realize she owes it to her mother to find out the truth, even if it means returning to a small Texas town full of secrets and lies, a jilted ex-boyfriend, and a father and brother who'd rather see her silenced. But as Sloane starts digging into the past, the question isn't whether she can uncover what really happened that night - it's what will remain of her family if she does?
