From the Publisher:
At the age of ten, Liza Barton shot her mother in their New Jersey home while trying to protect her from her violent stepfather. Despite her stepfather's claim that the shooting was a deliberate act, the Juvenile Court ruled the death an accident.

Trying to erase every trace of Liza's past, her adoptive parents changed Liza's name to Celia. At the age of twenty-eight, she married a sixty-year-old widower, and they had a son. Before their marriage, Celia confided the secret of her earlier life. On his deathbed, her husband made her swear never to reveal her past to anyone, so that their son would not carry the burden of this family tragedy.

Happily remarried, Celia is shocked when her second husband presents her with a gift- the New Jersey house where she killed her mother. On the day they move in, the words BEWARE-LITTLE LIZZIE'S PLACE have been painted on the lawn.

Determined to prove that she was the victim of her stepfather's psychotic behavior, Celia sets out to gather the evidence. When the real estate agent who sold the house is brutally murdered she is once again branded a killer. As Celia fights to prove her innocence, she is not aware that her life and the life of her son are in jeopardy.

Growing up under an assumed identity after accidentally shooting her mother and escaping her abusive father, Liza Barton, still fearful that her past will reclaim her, is shocked when her husband inadvertently buys her childhood home.

Annotation:
A killer insistently unearths a woman's traumatic past in this thriller by bestselling suspense writer Mary Higgins Clark. When Celia's husband, Larry, was dying, he asked her to promise that she would never reveal her true identity to their young son nor to anyone else. So Celia's new husband, Alex, is unaware that Celia was once Liza Barton, a 10-year-old girl who accidentally shot and killed her mother during an attack by her stepfather. Although Liza was acquitted, popular opinion still blames her for that death. In a hideous coincidence, Alex buys her childhood home for them, and Celia/Liza can't tell her husband why she's so unhappy about the purchase. But an act of vandalism followed by a murder makes it clear that one of their new neighbors knows Celia's secret.
