“The best way to go, is just to do it” – Uncle Lanny
Harbored Secrets by Marie F. Martin is a book filled with drama from the very first chapter. Do not make the same mistake I did and start reading it before you go to bed! It is a hard book to put down.
The book is about Blinny, a troubled woman, who longs to build her own house. While building her house she is flooded with painful memories from a past she can not escape. Through out the whole book many secrets are revealed. Some secrets are shocking some are very much expected. Martin is good at not giving away the answers to all the story all at once. It is because of this that makes it hard to put the book down.
I wanted to hug Blinny throughout the whole book and tell her how strong she was to be able to deal with everything. I also understood her longing for a place to call her own. We all want to be in a place that makes us happy. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good drama. I also would love to read some of Martin’s other works to see if they all carry this type of powerful story.
I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads and on Amazon. It was a book I will not soon forget.
