Word Guild Semi-Finalist
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?
Claudette Renalds, author of By the Sea
"Blossom Turner’s book, Anna’s Secret, is all about unconditional love, reconciliation and forgiveness. The characters are forced to deal with hurts from their past and failures marring the present, before realizing God’s truth about themselves and their future. The author addresses tough questions prevalent in today’s society without skirting the real issues. The book is a winner.”
"Excellent story line that captivates the reader from the beginning to the ending. Dealing with hard topics is never an easy task, however Blossom has tackled a series of difficult modern day issues and how to deal with them in a uplifting Christian manner. I'm impressed with the writing style and knowledge of how to gain lessons from the Bible in a way that is up to date for modern day problem solving. Excellent read!"
"The best book I've read in a very long time, and I read a lot. The author has a gift for developing characters in such a way that you feel you've known them for years. The situations are so realistic that it's not difficult to relate to them..."
