Her Family's Secrets
by Joanne C. Parsons
Her Family’s Secrets is a novel about a young woman who leaves her failing marriage and job in Boston for the chance to learn about a family she never knew. In the process, she learns about herself.
Cape Cod Massachusetts…Andrea Birch Rossi inherits an old family homestead in a seaside town on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Like her marriage, the two-hundred-year-old house is falling apart. When Andrea learns of her husband’s true feelings about conceiving a child, she leaves him and Boston and faces the challenge of giving the old house, once occupied by her ancestors, a new life. She discovers diaries and journals detailing their long-kept family secrets, and her great-grandmother’s vengeful act when she learns her husband has been unfaithful. Although disturbed, Andrea finds herself considering the same act when she learns of a deep betrayal in her own life.
Her Family’s Secrets follows the journey of a young woman discovering the truth about herself.
