"She drifted in an endless black slumber marred only by white hot flashes of pain. She tried to rouse herself from her terrible nightmare. When she finally regained consciousness, terror flooded her with the realization that she was still entombed in darkness and pain, and her nightmare was only beginning." Kelly Malloy is a wife, a mother and a successful lawyer whose world is shattered when she is brutally attacked while running along the banks of the Brandywine River. Chad McCloskey, a lonely teenage boy from a dysfunctional home, stumbles upon Kelly Malloy's unconscious body immediately after the assault, and he is falsely accused of the crime after he tries to help her. Maria Hernandez, a young woman who emigrated illegally from Mexico, is reluctantly thrust into the role of witness to the crime, putting her in jeopardy of deportation only weeks before she is to give birth to her child. Kelly, Chad and Maria all suffer tremendous adversity in the wake of the crime, and they ultimately discover that their lives and their fate are inextricably and permanently connected. Long Hill Home is a story of crime, mystery and the legal process-but it is also a story about the human condition, and how, regardless of vast differences in background or circumstances, all people strive for the same things-love, security and a fulfilling life.
