His Secret Family by Ali Mercer. The past's silent secrets can be shattering.

His Secret Family by Ali Mercer. Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture.

Past secrets seem to always have a way of surfacing and colliding with the present when the truth must be discovered.

His Secret Family is brimming with secrets.

The hopes, dreams, heartbreaks, trials, healing, and elusive joys in the lives of Ava, Ellie, Jenny and Paula - seen through their eyes, immediately engage you. Their stories are threaded together by the actions and decisions of one man. A man who has intentions of his own, regardless of the fall-out and has deviously played them all.

A number of societal issues; divorce, alcoholism, infidelity, autism, even a touch of the mystic, are dealt with and delivered with grace and sensitivity in this well-paced and emotion driven book.

Ali Mercer has that on on-target ability to lock in your emotions from her first sentence and her stories stay with you long after the book is finished.

I highly recommend His Secret Family and reading everything Ali writes.

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the read of Ali Mercer’s, His Secret Family.
