    Ever noticed how often lately we've been pleasantly surprised when reading or listening to a book by a first-time author? It's almost as if you've suddenly discovered something wonderful, and can't wait to tell your friends about it. Many are telling their pals about THE LANGUAGE OF SECRETS by California screenwriter Dianne Dixon. It's original, compelling, and tends to make one think about his or her personal values.

    Justin Fisher should be happily content. He's the manager of a plush hotel, happily married to a wonderful woman, and father of a fine young son. However, his contentment isn't quite complete because he wonders about his past - he has been estranged from his boyhood family and there are some really blank spots in his early years.

    Feeling that it's time to put questions and unhappiness behind him he returns to California in hopes of reconnecting with his family. Once there it is shock after shock. The house he once lived in is now home to strangers. He goes to the nursing home where his father had lived only to learn that his father had passed away just several weeks before Justin's arrival. Upon going to the cemetery to visit the graves of his parents he finds not two graves but three, and one belongs to him. Thomas Justin Fisher apparently died at the age of three.

    Dixon relates Justin's search bu revealing his life in flashbacks to his childhood. We are privy to both past and present as he slowly and painfully discovers the truth about his mother, father and himself.

    Film and stage actress Rebecca Lowman delivers a sterling reading of this highly emotional drama.
