On the afternoon when Angel Allegria arrives at the Poloverdos’ farmhouse, he kills the farmer and his wife. But he spares their child, Paolo–a young boy who will claim this as the day on which he was born. Together the killer and the boy begin a new life on this remote and rugged stretch of land in Chile. Then Luis Secunda, a well-to-do and educated fellow from the city descends upon them. Paolo is caught in the paternal rivalry between the two men. But life resumes its course . . . until circumstances force the three to leave the farm. In doing so, Angel and Luis confront their pasts as well as their inevitable destinies–destinies that profoundly shape Paolo’s own future. From the Hardcover edition.

Pierre-Marie est un écrivain en panne d'inspiration. Adeline est une fervente lectrice qui a beaucoup de choses à lui dire. Leur rencontre par mots interposés va changer leur vie et les révéler à eux-mêmes. Retiré dans la Drome et esseulé depuis le départ inexpliqué de son épouse, Pierre-Marie reçoit un jour une épaisse enveloppe contenant un manuscrit envoyé par l'une de ses lectrices, Adeline. Sans ouvrir le pli, il lui répond. Une correspondance s'engage, en cette année 2013, qui durera huit mois, de février à octobre. Au fil de leurs échanges, un lien intime s'établit. Ils composent librement, avec leur réalité, leur personnalité, leurs zones d'ombre. Ils s'inventent une vie. Car la leur s'est arrêtée quelques années plus tôt. Pierre-Marie et Adeline ont en effet une histoire en commun, mais qui ne leur appartient pas, et dont Pierre-Marie ne sait rien encore. Le mystère reste prisonnier de l'enveloppe expédiée par Adeline. Plus les lettres se précisent, plus elles effleurent la vérité qui dort dans ces pages... et des personnages depuis longtemps oubliés reprennent vie et entrent dans la danse.

The reason they've never met Chance's parents or seen his home is becoming clearer. And what the siblings used to think of as Chance's quirks—the outrageous stories, his clinginess, his dangerous impulsiveness—are now warning signs that something is seriously off. Then someone turns up with a bullet to the head, and all eyes shift to Chance's family. Hunter and Ashlin know Chance is innocent...they just have to prove it. But how can they protect the boy they both love when they can't trust a word Chance says?
