I'm an avid nonfiction reader. I rarely pick up novels...and if I do, I rarely finish them! But this one...I honestly couldn't put down. I was hooked from the first page...the intrigue, the characters, the twists and turns. I love the way the author writes...with such depth and simplicity that I wish I could find in other novelists. I'm ready to pre-order her next book! Barbara Stanny

The Secrets They Kept is a poignant, moving portrait of a close-knit Greek immigrant family and their descendants, including the second generation who is, in part, breaking away from the family’s traditions. The action is driven in part by the mental illness of Yannis, but more by the personalities and decisions of various family members in dealing with Yannis, particularly the secrets they kept about him and about their respective interactions with him. The novel revolves around the results of those secrets on those who keep them and those they keep them from including members of a generation who never knew Yannis. Beautifully written, the book is a compelling and fascinating read.
