The Secret of Lies by Barbara Forte Abate

Tuesday, November 29, 2011





Synopsis: Propelled by an insurmountable sense of desperation, Stevie Burke is recklessly abandoning home, husband, and outwardly contented life under cover of night; at last resigned to defeat in her long battle against the tortured memories of her past.

Days later, lost and floundering in a dreary motel room without plan or destination, it is a long ago song playing on the radio that gently tugs Stevie back through the dust of remembrance. 1957 - The last summer spent at the ancient house overlooking the North Atlantic. A season which had unfolded with abundant promise, but then spiraled horribly out of control - torn apart by a shattering tragedy that remains splintered in fragments upon her soul. And it is only now, when Stevie at last lifts her eyes to stare deep into the heart of her long sequestered memories, that the long held secrets of past and future are at last unveiled.

Review: The Secret of Lies by Barbara Forte Abate is a dark, captivating read. I found my self easily drawn into the story. The author definitely wrote strong and memorable characters like Stevie who I couldn't help but feel drawn to. I did feel a little torn about the ending but really that's my only complaint about this book. The writing is carefully crafted and beautiful, almost lyrical. The struggle that goes on within Stevie is deep and real. Get ready for a roller coaster of emotions. This book is not like anything i've read and I mean that as the sincerest compliment. Barbara Forte Abate is a force to be reckoned with. If you're looking for a thought provoking read, something that will really draw you in than this is your book. But you're forewarned, it will move you. I highly recommend that you buy this book, you will love it!
