Once again, this author has transported me to the heart of Appalachia. A Tapestry of Secrets is primarily a contemporary novel, yet there are flashbacks to Perla’s youth. Perla is a character that readers met earlier in the series, yet if you have not read the other books, I believe that A Tapestry of Secrets does give enough information to act as a stand alone novel. I have read all of the books in the series and loved reconnecting with several characters from earlier novels.
There are really two main stories taking place in this book. Ella is Perla’s granddaughter and is really trying to find her place in this world. She struggles to understand about having a deep relationship with God, she questions her past judgement in a recent relationship and wonders if romance will ever be a part of her life, she values family and history and keeps both deep in her heart.
Perla’s story is both of the past and the present as she struggles to heal and share the truth about what happened in her life so long ago. I really enjoyed finding out more and more in small snippets throughout the book. I thought that both Ella and Perla’s stories were equally intriguing. I enjoyed this novel.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
