Secrets Sister’s Keep
By Abby Drake
families have secrets; that’s just the way human beings are.
However, some families have such hurtful and deep secrets that no

As they try
to find out just what happened to Uncle Edward, they are forced
to deal with each other and secrets are revealed. Carleen, the sister
who burned their childhood home to the ground, accidentally causing

shove, the others do allow her to help find their wayward uncle.

this book for women, especially women who have frayed relationships
with their sisters. Who knows, if you share the book with your sisters,
you might find it gives you an opening to spill your secrets and
repair your relationships. I do think there is a target audience
for this book, women and sisters. A fast read, good for a rainy
day or a cold winter’s afternoon.
