SHE HID HER TRUE SELF.
NOW THE TRUTH WILL BE REVEALED.


Living a life of lies under the thumb of her widowed, spiritually-obsessed mother, Celeste has been forced to take on the identity of her dead identical twin brother, Noble. Under her boyish clothes and short-cut hair, she's almost forgotten what it's like to be Celeste -- except for the one thing that keeps her sane: caring for her darling daughter, Baby Celeste. And only Celeste knows the truth about the baby's father. But when Celeste's mother marries a kindly neighbor, a new breed of poisonous secrets and vicious enemies will force Celeste to do what she must to survive the darkness. Will revealing the truth about herself release her and her child from the demons of her family's past? Or will it seal a terrible fate for them both?
