Desire & Deceit
How well do you know your family? Your neighbors? Do you know their secrets and lies? Their desires. Their deceits? Early on Jonathan Longacre was committed to saving mankind, easing pain, smoothing the bumps in the road. As a psychotherapist, he is a success.

Their children Sean and Sierra stumble as teenagers often do, while brother Marty fights the battle of the bottle known as alcoholism. Hearts and minds are revealed slowly and carefully when love is more certain than betrayal. Come with us on an excursion into these complicated lives ... and possibly gain some insight into your own.
