Donna Hechler Porterabout this book: Keeping Secrets is the kind of book I like to read, but have a hard time finding these days, a sweeping American historical that will pull you into a simpler, forgotten time. And yet, the characters, with timeless flaws and struggles, will endear you and speak to your heart. There is something here for everyone. A heroine with a devastating secret. A hero who finds forgiving hard. A young girl desperate to keep her sisters out of indentured service. And a young boy who, even as he struggles to get past the death of his mother, finds himself determined to keep his father from remarrying so he can follow his own heart. And above all, there are secrets. And secrets can be devastating.
