The Lying Woods

November 2018

When Owen Foster's mother shows up at his elite boarding school, he learns that his privileged life has been funded by stolen money. After using the family business to embezzle millions and drain his employees' retirement accounts, Owen's father vanished without a trace. Owen returns to his small hometown to finish his senior year, where people he hardly remembers despise him for his father's crimes. His only refuge is the sprawling orchard he works at after school, owned by a man named Gus, who seems to know Owen better than he knows himself. As Owen uncovers a terrible injustice, he must face a shocking truth about his past --- and write a better future.
