For both Zane and Darby, their small town roots hold a terrible secret. Now, decades later, they've come together to build a new life. But will the past set them free or pull them under?

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...

Years later, Zane returns to his hometown determined to reconnect with the place and people that mean so much to him, despite the painful memories. As he resumes life in the colorful town, he meets a gifted landscape artist named Darby, who is on the run from ghosts of her own.

Together they will have to teach each other what it means to face the past, and stand up for the ones they love.

Quotes & Awards

  • "[Under Currents] is brilliantly plotted and unrelentingly propulsive. It is a beautifully written story about the fragility of life and the power of the past and the need to fight back… A highly recommended novel for this summer.”

    Washington Book Review

  • “Heartfelt…Roberts continues to wow readers…An impressive addition to her remarkable literary canon.”

    Booklist

  • “Roberts’s latest is full of powerful, magnetic characters who have overcome terrible situations. Suspense and sensual romance are expertly combined in this riveting story.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “January LaVoy gives a gripping performance of contrasting personalities and voices…Zane and his sister’s voices as adults sound deeper and self-assured, but LaVoy stays true to the cadences and personalities first introduced. Zane’s father projects a confidence and persuasive tone to outsiders and a quiet coldness that surges into yelling at home. LaVoy gives Darby a satisfying Yankee accent and plucky demeanor that contrast with Zane’s warm Southern drawl.”
