Some Secrets Weren’t Meant to Be Kept… They started out as the “misfit moms”—the trio of less-than-conventional parents at their sons’ tiny private school. They’ve shared everything. Or so they thought. Now, on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to New York City, they’ll sightsee, they’ll shop, they’ll catch a few Broadway shows. They’ll tell all… After seventeen years as a single parent, Neve will reveal a past sin that could destroy her relationship with her son. Emma will uncover the roots of her exhaustion and divulge the inappropriate feelings she has for her boss. And Flick—who knows a little about crafting a flawless exterior—will share the shocking truth that lies beneath the veneer of her perfect marriage. When the tight hold they’ve each kept on their secrets for years begins to slip, they must face the truth. Even if the truth will forever alter the course of their friendship and their lives.

Keeping Secrets

This is a brilliant book, beautifully written, which reinforces with a spellbinding story what I’ve always known about Southern women: Keep your eye on them.

What’s a nice Southern Jewish girl like Emma Fine doing married to an angry but beautiful and incredibly sexy black artist like Jesse Tree? Emma Tree’s marriage is falling apart. Jesse’s obsession with Skytop, the old inn he’s renovating, pulls him further away from her, and the distance forces Emma into some uneasy questions about their relationship and about herself. She packs her bags and travels home to Louisiana, to a family she loves but barely knows. And the answers she finds along the way help solve the puzzles that have haunted her all her life. Before Emma’s mother Helen died, she made her husband Jake Fine promise to look after the baby should anything happen to Helen. After her death, Jake left his Baltimore home to travel to West Cypress, Louisiana, where a new wife was waiting. For Rosalie Norris, Emma was a dream come true. Emma is a right and precocious child, but by the time she’s a teenager, she has outgrown the old-fashioned provincialism of West Cypress and Rosalie’s stiflingly overprotective and obsessive love. While teaching in California, Emma meets and eventually marries Jesse Tree. Theirs is a passionate and loving relationship despite the vast differences between them. It’s a secret Emma must keep from her family, but it’s nothing compared to the secrets they’ve kept hidden from Emma all these years. Sarah Shankman has written a hauntingly touching and darkly funny novel about the long-time coming of age of a 30-year-old woman in search of the truth about who she is, where she comes from, and where she’s going. It’s a story about the secrets of the past and how they determine the future, and a love story about two people from completely different worlds who meet, fall in love, collide, and crash—sending off sparks that neither of them, nor the readers who come to love them, will ever forget. QUOTES “In Keeping Secrets Sarah Shankman has created a character as wise and wonderfully funny as Fear of Flying’s Isadora Wing. This is a brilliant book, beautifully written, which reinforces with a spellbinding story what I’ve always known about Southern women: Keep your eye on them. They’ll blindside you with their bravery and slamdunk your heart.” Pat Conroy The Prince of Tides “Holly Golightly, turn in your jersey. Here comes Emma Tree. Keeping Secrets is a wonderment, a subtle earthy, joyous, darkling journey through a bright country, in which a fragmented and most appealing Southern girl sets out to discover herself and finds a woman of enormous richness, complexity, and wholeness. In Impersonal Attractions, Sarah Shankman showed us she has a near-perfect ear and eye for the contemporary dilemma. In Keeping Secrets, she proves—magnificently—that she also has the heart for it.” Anne Rivers Siddons Heartbreak Hotel

Secrets kept are fears unresolved. But can these two push aside their fears to find happiness, or will the secrets be too big to share, to admit? For years, Kalliope "Kallie" Davis has kept a devastating secret from her best friend Danny and his family. She's kept it from not only them, but also the rest of her town, and she's not about to reveal it now. Her whole life was changed when her parents were killed in a car accident two years ago, and now, thanks to another accident, it's changing again. Ryder Sinclair has kept his family together since his father and stepmother died in a plane crash, leaving him guardian over his younger brother and sister. He's watched with the rest of the town as Danny and Kallie went around, unable to stop the deep desire he's had for Kallie for too many years. He's kept it hidden, secret for longer than anyone's known. It's been hopeless to think of having her as his, until an accident lands Danny in the hospital and the truth comes out about their relationship. He's not about to rest until he's made Kallie his, but she's hiding something from him and he's desperate to uncover what. Kallie's hiding more than just one secret though, and when Ryder hints at wanting something with her, can she begin to risk them tumbling out? The man she swore was ice cold proves he isn't that in the least, and now, there's another secret she has to keep...she's fallen in love with him. She can't keep him, she knows that, but as her secrets slowly unravel, will Ryder even want her anymore? She's too scared to utter them to anyone, let alone Ryder. She's terrified at what might happen if she reveals the worst of them, at what all she might lose because of it. Nothing's simple in Kallie's life, no matter how much she wishes it were. Shocks and changes abound quickly in their relationship, and when another huge change comes about, will she have the strength to admit to the darkest secret she's kept from Ryder or will it completely destroy their future? Find out what happens as Ryder lays it all on the line to claim the only woman he's ever loved. He's willing to go through hell just to keep her. Nothing on earth will keep him from her now, not when his ring is on her finger, his name as hers. *Keeping Secrets is a contemporary romance novel of approximately 54,000 words.*

We have not taken care of each other or spiritual matters that concern God. Lastly, this book about the Sacrifice of God. He gave his only begotten son. He gave his only begotten son. Jesus Christ represents LOVE and the Bible represents COUNSEL.
