Author Spotlight: Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels–she is also the author of the bestselling In Death series written under the pen name J.D. Robb. There are more than five hundred million copies of her books in print.

UNDER CURRENTS, Nora’s latest standalone beach read (on sale this week!), explores the power of family to harm—and to heal.

Zane Bigelow grew up in a beautiful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. 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. Only Zane and his sister know the truth, until one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the facade, and Zane escapes for college without a thought of looking back.
