Anna Clarke has faced loneliness for years, caring for a sick and distant husband. Recently widowed, with all that brought meaning to her life gone, the consummate good girl falls from grace in a moment of weakness and passion.
Horrified to find she is pregnant, she is surprised when those closest to her assume the baby is her late husband’s. Guilt and pride allow the lie to live until her deceit hits a wall when the biological father Dr. Matthew Carmichael comes calling.
Shocked at how one lie bled so easily into another, Anna realizes her reputation of devout Christian living is about to disappear like a leaf caught in a windstorm. She hears the whisper of her loving Heavenly Father, who longs to restore her soul, but does she have the courage to face the scandal and the truth of her feelings toward the handsome Dr. Carmichael?

Having suffered through her husband dealing with and then dying from cancer, Anna has walked a very devastating path of caring for her husband and basically raising their two sons on their own. However, once her husband dies, the doctor who has gone through the journey with them develops an intense interest in Anna.
Anna realizes she has basically dealt with everything she can handle, Dr. Matthew Carmichael provides the attention and support she had been missing from her deceased husband. So they wind up have one night of intense intimacy that leads to Anna becoming pregnant.
Have you ever had people assume something to be true before you can explain the truth? Anna finds herself in that position. People believe Christians should act a certain way and when they fail to live up to those expectations those people turn against or possibly talk about the one who failed to meet their expectations.
Add in a niece who finds herself in a similar situation and the intensity of this story grows. The book illustrates how one decision made with a lack of good judgment can have both damaging and amazing consequences over the course of time. This story illustrates the true attributes of Christian forgiveness, Christian leadership in a family, and Christian love.
So check out this book for yourself. I definitely recommend it.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

MORE ABOUT WHY I WROTE ANNA’S SECRET
I am a hopeless romantic, it has been at the core of my being from a child up. I dreamed of a love that would whisk me far from the pain of my childhood upbringing.
When I first started to write Anna’s Secret, I had not yet learned all I needed to know about forgiveness. I was half-way through the book when sorrow and betrayal hit my marriage. (See “About Me” at https://blossomturner.com) I stopped writing for years.
However, as God healed the broken and restored my soul, words of love once again danced within my being. God directed that I finish this book weaving in all I learned from the crucible of suffering in my own life. Through understanding the restorative power of God’s forgiveness when humanity fails, I wrote Anna’s Secret with a strong thread of hope woven into its fabric.
Readers have expressed to me that the authenticity of this book has brought them to tears and given them a love story that entertained. However, the part I love the most … Anna’s Secret has inspired some readers to ask God for the help to forgive themselves, or for the power to offer the gift of forgiveness to another.
My prayer is that you will find Anna’s Secret an entertaining romance, inspiration to your soul, and that you will enjoy the happy ending … always a happy ending. After all, God is the God of happily ever after, and heaven is the home in which all His children will find the greatest love of all.
