REVIEW: Secrets She Kept by Cathy Gohlke

Secrets She Kept - eBook - By: Cathy Gohlke

Hannah Sterling has recently lost her mother and she is adrift.  The grief is impacting her work as a school teacher.  She is asked to take a leave of absence and get her mental self back together.  At the appointment with her mother’s attorney, Hannah’s life takes an interesting turn as she is given the chance to get to know her mother’s history.

Every other chapter follows Hannah and then her mother, Lieselotte.  We meet Lieselotte as a teen in WWII Germany.  The daughter of a prominent Nazi-allied family, Lieselotte must face tough decisions as she comes of age in this fabulous story.

This is a great piece of history.  I was engaged in the characters from the beginning and savoured each chapter as I learned more about both women.  I’m reluctant to give too many details, but know it will be time well spent for readers.

Thanks to Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
