Publisher's Summary

Kim Brewster's ill-fated marriage was annulled so quickly that she thought she could keep the whole thing a secret...until she found out she was pregnant. But before her confession can blow a hole in the seemingly perfect lives of the Brewster women, her great-grandmother, Hannah, drops a bomb of her own. She's selling her hotel and moving to a farm in Oklahoma - and all the Brewsters are coming with her. Kim is sure her grandmother, Karen, and mother, Sue, won't go along with the plan, but Hannah can be very convincing. Soon the women are working the farm, selling their wares from a roadside stand, and finally feeling like a family.

And as the Brewster women's lives take shape in ways they never expected, Kim may have found another shot at love. Luke thought he'd washed his hands of women, but when he stops by the vegetable stand and meets Kim, he's instantly smitten. To find love, though, they'll both have to dig past their hidden secrets.

Great story

This was a great story and it didn't have all the cussing that some of her books have. Proof that you can tell a great story without cussing every other breath. Greatly enjoyed it!!

Hidden Secrets

Carolyn Brown has so much talent for making me fall in love with her characters. Kim Brewster is almost 20 years old. She just found out she is pregnant and is afraid to tell her mother, Sue; her grandmother, Kim; and her great-grandmother, Hannah, because they are so "perfect" and she doesn't want to be disowned.
When Kim got married in Vegas, she quickly realized the mistake she made and ended up getting the marriage annulled. Before Kim could figure out how to tell everyone, her great grandmother, Hannah, tells everyone that she is going to move to a farm in Oklahoma and they are all going with her!
At first I didn't think I could keep everyone straight. Four generations of women, all about 20 years apart are a lot to keep track of! It wasn't so bad though after a couple chapters. This was a light, quick read with great narration done by Shannon McManus.

I felt as if I was there with the characters

I love Carolyn Brown's books. They are so comforting. This book features four generations of well off women who have left West Virginia for the rigors of a farm in Oklahoma. I feel as if I am sitting at the table with the ladies in Hidden Secrets as they prepare foods and talk to one another. In this book each female character has a secret that is revealed to the other characters. The revealed secrets draw them closer. One reviewer commented that everything comes too easily to the characters, but I frankly want their lives to be good. I did not want to read about failure and struggling. I was drawn into this story and felt quite satisfied by the ending. Lovely story.

The narrator is very talented. I forgot she was there and only believed the characters were present. I knew who was talking and never thought about the narrator's accent. She just honestly and quietly performed the characters and made them come alive.

Lack luster

Not plot to speak of- the characters are likable enough, but a little too whiny for my taste.

Family Secret's....

This story was entertainingly funny and sad at the same time...I especially enjoyed the banter between the Brewster women from the Great Grandmother to the great granddaughter...although each woman had her own issues the story flowed seamlessly and kept my attention until the very end....the narrator did an awesome job with the different voices which also made this a fun read...this is my first time with this author and narrator and I look forward to hearing more from both
