... Hidden Secrets will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew...


Carla Michaels’s life isn't what she thought it was. She met her loving husband in college. She had a career as a teacher. All she ever wanted to complete her life was a baby. After five miscarriages, Carla had almost given up hope of ever becoming a mother.

Then a devastating tragedy strikes and everything she had ever loved is gone—now she’s left torn and shattered, wondering if she can go on with life.

Unexpectedly, she receives an envelope full of books. Journals that were kept hidden from her. A mystery starts to play out as secrets are revealed.

Will she get a second chance at life? Will the hidden secrets destroy her? Or will she find the strength to survive once she knows the truth?


“Hidden Secrets” will pull at your heartstrings until the very last page. Some secrets are not meant to be hidden…
