Secrets Book Review
Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn is the first in the Glenbrooke Series. When I first requested this book I didn't realize that it has been published for quite awhile. I have also never read anything by Robin Jones Gunn, not even the Christy Miller series. In any case I had no idea what to expect.
Secrets is about Miss Jessica Morgan and starts off as her escaping from something and hiding her identity in the small town of Glenbrooke. After being in a car accident, a young man named Kyle enters her life. Kyle is first to rescue her from the car. Kyle is a strong Christan man and Jessica has nothing to do with God. As Jessica's identity becomes an issue with her new job as a teacher she must decide what the right thing to do is, even if it's the last thing she wants to do.
The author also added in a trip to Mexico that Jessica ends up going on, not necessarily by choice. Kyle happens to be going on this trip as well and her eyes are opened to how great God is. I liked this part because it reminded me of a trip to Mexico I took. In the end it is quite obvious that God has been in control the entire time.
I enjoyed this book, though not my favorite. It is very predictable even though it is trying to hide a secret. Her secret really isn't as big a deal as it is made out to be and thus was a tad disappointing. In any case it was a light enjoyable read.
Robin Jones Gunn website has a lot more information where you can read about all the books she has written.
"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
