April 2014 Book of the Month.
Jen’s father abandoned his family when she was eight years old. Later she discovers her embittered mother has hidden letters and birthday presents from him and is deeply saddened. In marrying Jason, a son of a loving family, she revels in the warmth she felt she had missed when growing up. When she discovers a secret about her father-in-law she is shattered. Her dilemma, of course, is whether to confront him or not. The author tackles interesting family secrets and deceit with sympathy. It’s her fifth novel and it's good light entertainment.
Jen has discovered a secret. It's not hers to share, but is it hers to keep? If she tells her husband Jason, he might get over the shock but will he forgive her for telling the truth? She might drive a wedge through their marriage. If she tells someone else in Jason's family - the family she's come to love more than her own - she'd not only tear them apart but could also find herself on the outside: she's never really been one of them, after all. But if she keeps this dirty little secret to herself, how long can she pretend nothing is wrong? How long can she live a lie? Jen knows the truth - but is she ready for the consequences?
