Nothing can prepare single mom Lindy Ames for the nightmare that would plague her in April of 1999.
What Lindy first mistakes as signs of pneumonia in her six-month-old son, Jake, turn out to be something much worse, something potentially fatal. Doctors determine that Jake has been severely abused for a prolonged period of time and may not make it through the night. That night marked the beginning of the nightmare that was to become Lindy’s life for the next few years.
Upon learning that Jake’s abuse was inflicted by supposed family friend David Hardesty, who had taken Lindy and her children in when she was down on her luck, Lindy realizes she can trust no one. Then another shocking blow is dealt—her young daughter, Nikki, was abused as well.
During this painful period, Lindy cannot even turn to family for help. Profound family dysfunctions are revealed in the attempt to overcome the traumatic events. Lindy learns that her footing in her family had been precarious for many reasons, and uncovering those details leaves her just as scarred as any of the other pain she had ever faced.
Lindy must try to rebuild her life with only the help of God and the hope a relationship with him provides. Will Lindy ever escape from The House That Silence Bought?
