Publisher's Summary

How far will you go to save someone you love and trust when they’ve kept a dangerous secret for years?

That’s the question facing Lance Kingston, a successful Houston magazine executive whose recent marriage to beautiful, high-powered attorney Tia Jiles seemed to promise a bright future for both of them. But under the surface, a fierce and frightening storm was brewing. That’s because Tia never revealed to Lance what she and her family have known since Tia was 17 - she has an illness that takes over her mind, transforming her into a raging, violent woman hell-bent on destruction. Bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia. Or crazy, as Lance’s grandmother continually reminds him.

“Crazy leaves clues,” she told him point-blank, and perhaps Lance should have listened. Tia’s mother tries to pray the problem away...and Tia’s doctors can’t help her if she won’t do what they advise. Now there’s more than their marriage and Tia’s survival at stake: Tia is pregnant, and Lance will stop at nothing to keep his troubled wife and unborn daughter safe. But at what price?

    Any additional comments?

    this book opens the door to some real life lessons, I know lots of black people who don't believe in depression and this is sad to say, but a lot of us are in a state of depression of some form or fashion and don't want to face the fact, til life gets to heavy to handle. We need to get with the program. Although the book was a bit on the young side for me, I think it could be a wake up call for a lot of younger women, I give this book an A

    "Excellent Story Line"
    Would you listen to The Secret She Kept again? Why?

    Yes, because there are many learning examples you can glean from this book. It is amazing how the story line unfolded. Some may think that certain scenes are unreal, but when you listen to or read the news, you quickly realize that the story line in this book is right up there with the rest of the headlines.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I appreciated the depth of knowledge that the author explained about the illness of the character. I've never encountered anyone that had these type of issues, but to say the least it was quite educational.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The chance encounter when Lance and Tia met after a First Friday event after Tia lost her shoe. This was probably the funniest part of the book. LOL


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others because it is a definite "eye-opener" and I enjoy reading books that are not only entertaining but educational.

    The story line was good enough, but I was expecting more emotion because of the subject matter...

    "love it"

    I can relate to her. To a T, I am Bipolar and I go through the same issues everyday since I was a teenager. It's hard everyday and a blessing by the end of it to have survived another 24 hours. more books should be written like this. We like to know were5not alone.
