Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn/Review
"Secrets" is published by Waterbrook-Multnomah and will be available in ebook and paperback book as of February 16, 2010. I was happy to receive a copy from the publishers for the sole purpose of reviewing.
Jessica Morgan wants desperately to forget the past and begin a new life. She chooses a small,peaceful town tucked away in Oregon's Willamette Valley as the place to start over -- Glenbrook. Once they are, Jessica conceals her identity from the intriguing personalities she meets -- including the compassionate paramedic who desires to protect her and the jealous woman who wants nothing more than destroy her.
Will Jessica's deceit ruin all hope for the future? Or will she find a deeper peace that allows her to stop hiding the truth from those who love her most of all?
This heartwarming bestseller, book one in the Glenbrooke series, introduces the fascinating people of Glenbrooke in a compelling tale of romance and spiritual truth.
