Book Review: A Mother's Secret

9780310335818A Mother’s Secret

Book two in the Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series.
Carolyn Lapp dreams of marrying for love. But will the errors of her past destroy this dream forever?

Carolyn Lapp longs to have a traditional Amish family. But she lives on her brother’s farm with her parents and her 15-year old son, Benjamin. Carolyn has never revealed the identity of Benjamin’s father and lives daily with the guilt and shame of her youthful indiscretion. Her brother simply will not forgive her.

His answer is to arrange a practical marriage for Carolyn to Saul, a widower with a little girl. But Carolyn isn’t convinced that Saul really loves her and believes he is simply looking for someone to help raise his daughter.

When Benjamin causes trouble at a local horse auction, horse breeder Joshua Glick decides that he must be taught a lesson. Carolyn and Joshua are unmistakably drawn to each other, but Joshua mistakenly assumes that Benjamin is Carolyn’s brother. Carolyn fears that if he discovers the truth, her past will destroy their budding romance.

After years of shame and loneliness, Carolyn suddenly has two men vying for her attention. But which of them will give her the family-and the unconditional love-she’s longed for?

My Thoughts
Carolyn Lapp holds a very large secret, a secret that she knows needs to be told, but fears the consequences.  I've you've ever held onto a life changing secret you'll understand how Carolyn feels.

Carolyn has been dished out a lot of pain in her life, and it doesn't end with her family.  Her brother, his children, and her own father tend to give her a very hard time, and it is a difficult situation for everyone.

This story is about faith, healing, love and most of all forgiveness.  I really enjoyed this book, it's not all serious, there are parts that will bring a big smile to your face, maybe even a chuckle or two, especially when Carolyn dishes it out right back at a few certain characters!
