The Roanoke Girls

The Roanoke Girls Cover

The girls of the Roanoke family - beautiful, rich, mysterious - seem to have it all. But there's a dark truth about them that's never spoken.

Lane is one of the lucky ones. When she was fifteen, over one long, hot summer at her grandparents' estate in rural Kansas, she found out what it really means to be a Roanoke girl. Lane ran, far and fast. Until eleven years later, when her cousin Allegra goes missing - and Lane has no choice but to go back.

She is a Roanoke girl.

Is she strong enough to escape a second time?


This is strong stuff; twisted, deep and dark. In other words, utterly gripping. Set in the vast wheat fields of Kansas, it’s a story of breathtakingly arrogant male dominance over the Roanoke women: abuse on an almost unthinkable scale. And it’s got to stop.
