All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start. But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever? Convicted of a crime she didn't commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish-time that can never be recovered. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name, rebuild her life, and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows. But Allie's return home shatters the quaint, coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. Even her own daughter Caroline, now a teenager, bristles at Allie's claims of innocence. Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a battle for the truth, digging deeply into the past even if it threatens her parole status, personal safety, and the already fragile bond with family. As her commitment to finding the truth intensifies, what Allie ultimately uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret-one that holds the key to Allie's freedom. "This powerful debut ...is a suspenseful and haunting tale ...[and] is particularly unsettling as it mirrors the headlines found in newspapers and court cases everywhere." -Library Journal, starred review for Center of Gravity

Reviews

3 stars. 'Subtly creepy, McNeill's latest sneaks up on the reader with its eerie storyline. But some of the plot points and motives don't really work together. The buildup and eventual reveal fall a bit flat in the scope of the book. Overall, it's an original twist on the wrongly accused victim trying to exonerate herself, and will keep readers interested throughout." * RT Book Reviews * '...McNeill kept dangling me above the motivation until she finally explained it to me. I highly recommend this book to everyone.' * Fiction 411 * 'McNeill (Center of Gravity) misfires with this tangled tale of a wrongfully convicted woman trying to reclaim her life. Sheriff Lee Gaines's animosity, Emma's subversion (first hinted at, then blatant), and Caroline's histrionic anguish all become explicable once Allie discovers mysteriously still-intact evidence 10 years after Thomas's death. Clumsy plotting and shallow characters don't help. ' * Publishers Weekly *
