After tragedy strikes their home, Frederick Chandler, a stern, irritable, and violent widower, pulls his teenage daughter, Sydney, out of school and locks her in his attic. He justifies his actions by claiming he’s protecting her from a cruel world while homeschooling her. But, when a new neighbor moves into the house next door and their teenage son, Seth, interferes with his plans, Frederick begins to tighten his grip on Sydney, and Sydney starts fighting back. Discipline and homeschooling quickly turn into abuse and lessons of violence.

Can Sydney survive her father's wrath? Can Seth rescue her before it’s too late?

Jon Athan, the illustrious author of The Abuse of Ashley Collins and Grandfather’s House, brings you his 50th novel with this story of family and tragedy, discipline and abuse, and good deeds and bad consequences.

Warning: This novel contains graphic content. Listener discretion is advised.
