"Twisted friendships, toxic pasts and tangled motives—this is Sara Shepard doing what she does best!"—Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author

#1 New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars Sara Shepard's next adult novel follows a group of mothers living in a mysterious “mommune,” each of whom is running from something


When Lenna gets a call from her old friend Rhiannon, she is startled; Rhiannon disappeared years ago without a trace. But Lenna is even more startled to learn that Rhiannon has a son and that she lives off the grid with a group of women in a community called Halcyon. Rhiannon invites Lenna, a new mother herself, to join them. Why suffer the sleepless nights by yourself? It takes a village, after all.

Lenna decides to go and hopefully repair her relationship with Rhiannon, but as she drives into the desert and her cell service gets weaker, she becomes suspicious. Who are these women and why did Rhiannon invite her here? And that is before she learns about the community's rules (no outside phone calls, no questions about people’s pasts) and the padlock on the gate that leads out to the main road. But Lenna has other concerns, secrets from her past she is terrified will come out. When a newcomer arrives in the community, Lenna’s worst fears are confirmed—she was brought here for a reason.

Nowhere Like Home tackles themes of complicated friendships and trauma but all with Sara Shepard’s expert twists that you don’t see coming.
"Twisted friendships, toxic pasts and tangled motives—this is Sara Shepard doing what she does best!"
—Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author

"Nowhere Like Home is a wild, fast-paced ride through toxic friendships and new motherhood—and questionable choices involving both. Sara Shepard's latest thriller features an expertly crafted plot, an immersive and sinister desert setting, and a series of jaw-dropping twists, each more shocking than the last."
—Carola Lovering, bestselling author of Tell Me Lies and Bye, Baby

“In true Pretty Little Liars fashion, there are several twists and turns that readers won’t see coming . . . A fun, unpredictable, and daring read.”
Booklist

"Plenty of twists and turns, as well as some staggered narration—different voices, different time periods—keep the mystery moving...Fans of Shepard’s other books will be pleased."
