When Eden was ten years old she found her father, David, bleeding out on the bathroom floor. The suicide attempt led to her parents' divorce, and David all but vanished from Eden's life. Since childhood, she has heard from him only rarely, just enough to know he's been living on the streets and struggling with mental illness. But lately, there has been no word at all.

Now in her thirties, Eden decides to go look for her father, so she can forgive him at last, and finally move forward. When her search uncovers other painful truths, not only the secrets her mother has kept from her, but also the agonizing question of whether David, after all these years, even wants to be found, Eden is forced to decide just how far she’ll go in the name of love. Outside the Lines is a gripping novel about a woman who sets out to find the father who left her years ago, and ends up discovering herself.

Amy Hatvany is the author of three other novels, including Best Kept Secret. She lives in Seattle with her family.
