Publisher's Summary

One of Christian fiction's premiere novelists, Christy Award-winner Ann Tatlock has garnered MIPA Book of the Year honors for All the Way Home and I'll Watch the Moon.

When Beth Gunner begins teaching English at her high-school alma mater, she must confront a haunting secret from her past. Beth's return to Delaware's Seaton Preparatory Academy fills her with both nostalgia and trepidation. Since her graduation two decades ago, very little has changed - including her irrational fear of failure.

Despite her first day's nervous exhaustion, Beth settles into a manageable routine that includes regular conversations with a gifted loner. And then her high-school sweetheart calls with a clue to the tragic mystery that has disturbed her since that fateful night so long ago.

Slow, Steady but worth it

Would you listen to Every Secret Thing again? Why?

Probably not - simply because I'm not one to listen to things over again. This doesn't have enough in it to draw me back in again. It had a powerful message but it was developed very slowly.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Secret Thing?

When you realize that her teacher is still alive.

What does Linda Stephens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a great job.

If you could rename Every Secret Thing, what would you call it?

Forgiveness brings hope

Any additional comments?

its not my favorite Ann Tatlock book. Several times during the book I was really ready to give up on it as it was so depressing - however it was realistic. The ending redeemed itself for me so I would recommend it. But it isn't a easy feel good book.

Wake me up when its over

My commutes seemed faster when I listened to this book....I fell asleep each time.
I am a life long Delaware resident and it was nice to listen to a book set in Delaware.
