As if, she thought ironically, my childhood had ever been all that warm. Bill broke a silence that had lasted for at least five minutes. Do you hear anything special from your-from Elena?. She plans to be in New York next fall and expects to see me there.

Belva Plain's searing novel cuts to the heart of a family ravaged by secrecy. But it is ultimately a story of redemption, the kind that grows when one person dares to tell the truth. Compared to other Belva Plain books I read, this one was a little lackluster for me. The story of a decaying small New England town mill town that harbors secrets is a common story plot and the first part of the book followed it adequately. Part two that takes place about 10 years later is pretty disconnected, but in the end fell into place. In total, more than 20 of her books have been New York Times best sellers

When she looked back and said she didn't have the time, she felt as though she had been making excuses. In retrospect, she said, "I didn't make the time.

First came the sin. Then the lies. Her troubled mother is unable to cope. And her distinguished family has fallen from grace, plunged into debt. The only rock that sustains them in their darkest hours is a woman whose own guilty secret has given her the power to ruin-or resurrect-the family to whom she owes her life.

The older we get, the more memories we collect - and many are built on former memories! So goes the story of Belva Plain's book of a few years ago, "Secrecy." The secret, a bit seamy, is my only complaint. But it could so easily be a tale from today or tomorrow. Belva Plain is one of our book club's favorite authors.

Not as good as some of the other books

Suprises throughout kept me reading. The use of the storm to connect everything at the end was weak. The two young lovers reconnecting, the father's emotional and legal freedom and the riverfront parks "new life"----all thanks to a very convenient Noreaster. Having said that, I confess that I did like the story and that probably has everything to do with the very tallented author. I will continue to read Belva Plain novels.

Belva Plain can build characters and create a weave around them so that you become part of the story. I always hate it when one of her novels ends.
