"From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel about the power of family to harm--and to heal. Within the walls of a tasteful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, young Zane Bigelow feels like a prisoner of war. Strangers--and even Zane's own aunt across the lake--see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children's ballet recitals and baseball games. Zane and his sister know the truth: There is something terribly wrong. As his father's violent, controlling rages--and his mother's complicity--become more and more oppressive, Zane counts the years, months, days until he can escape. He looks out for little Britt, warning her: Be smart; Be careful. In fear for his very life, he plays along with the insidious lie that everything is fine, while scribbling his real thoughts in a secret journal he must carefully hide away. When one brutal, shattering night finally reveals cracks in the façade, Zane begins to understand that some people are willing to face the truth, even when it hurts. As he grows into manhood and builds a new kind of family, he will find that while the darkness of his past may always shadow him, it will also show him what is necessary for good to triumph--and give him strength to draw on when he once again must stand up and defend himself and the ones he loves..."--… (mais)

From the outside, Zane Bigelow, star high school baseball player, seems to have everything, but underneath it all, he and his sister are living a nightmare with abusive parents. One night changes everything when Zane tries to protect his sister from their father and takes a beating that almost kills him. That's when Zane begins to keep the notebooks detailing his abuse. With the help of his aunt and his best friend's father, Zane's parents finally go to jail. Years later, Zane is now a lawyer and is returning to his hometown to start a law practice there. When he meets Darby McCray, who has survived an abusive marriage, his future looks bright until Zane's and Darby's pasts come back to haunt them both.
Nora Roberts' detailed description of Lakeview weaves a picture of a quaint town inhabited by friendly, colorful characters, making it a place where many people would like to live. The story is divided into four sections, with each containing separate but important plot points. The most intense section is the first, recounting Zane's early abuse and the havoc it caused in his life. The following three sections are not as good as the first, but do lead to a satisfying conclusion. Overall a good read. ( )

Under Currents: A Novel, is a book that in the beginning stated its purpose; a story of terrible child and adult to adult physical abuse. At all thoughts, one would not want to read the book further. This is too difficult of a topic to want to read about. Under Currents, however, is a book about courage, family and powerful individual strength. It is a book that gives one hope. By all means this is a book that should be read. Under Currents has received five stars in this review. It is highly recommended. ( )

Good story about childhood abuse and escaping from it and building a successful life. ( )

As with most of NR's new work, she recycles her characters...Zane had childhood trauma and now lives in a fancy house on the hill, recalling Naomi in Obsession. Kevin the contractor in Obsession also has a role in Under Currents, this time as Darby, the landscaping love interest. Nevertheless, they aren't so similar as to be annoying (ahem, Inn Boonsboro trilogy) and they star in an engaging story and a lovely depiction of North Carolina high country. ( )
