It is 1960 in North Carolina and the lives of Ivy Hart and Jane Forrester couldn't be more different. Fifteen-year-old Ivy lives with her family as tenants on a small tobacco farm, but when her parents die, Ivy is left to care for her grandmother, older sister, and nephew. As she struggles with her grandmother's aging, her sister's mental illness, and her own epilepsy, she realizes they might need more than she can give. When Jane Forrester takes a position as Grace County's newest social worker, she is given the task of recommending which of her clients should be sterilized without their knowledge or consent. The state's rationalization is that if her clients are poor, or ill, or deemed in some way "unfit" they should not be allowed to have children. But soon Jane becomes emotionally invested in her clients' lives, causing tension with her new husband and her supervisors. No one understands why Jane would want to become a caseworker for the Department of Public Health when she could be a housewife and Junior League member. As Jane is drawn in by the Hart women, she begins to discover the secrets of the small farm—secrets much darker than she would have guessed. Soon, she must decide whether to take drastic action to help them, or risk losing a life-changing battle. Necessary Lies is the story of these two young women, seemingly worlds apart, but both haunted by tragedy. Jane and Ivy are thrown together and must ask themselves: How can you know what you believe is right, when everyone is telling you it's wrong?

And the Unit’s men are special agents in more ways than one, with secrets that can make or break them—and the hearts of those who fall for them . . . He’s known only as Cowboy.

Every family has secrets. Every family tells lies to protect their secrets. Bringing up ethical children with necessary lies is a problem. They told Sarah she could never have children of her own. I told her I wanted to have her babies, and she found a way to make that happen. They told Sarah she could never marry the love of her life. But then they legalized same-sex marriage across the river. So we got married, cherry blossoms and two kids in all the wedding pictures. Growing up different is hard, I understand that. My Miranda is such a headstrong teenager. We looked like a normal family, almost. Except houses are expensive across the river where we're legal. Except things haven't really changed that much since I was a kid, getting beat up because I was gay. Except being not quite legal makes a difference at the hospital. With the school system. At the state university system. Necessary lies almost worked, until they just didn't any more. Were we really all that different? And what do we do now, to pick up the pieces?
