Widowed and re-married with two daughters, Esther is unable to control her eldest daughter Geneva’s wayward ways and sends Geneva to live with her aunt and her aunt’s husband in Ivy Glen, a small town outside Chicago. Esther’s attempt to find salvation for her child sets in motion a series of dramatic events that tests the bonds of one family as they discover ‘Family Secrets.’

     Based on fact, ‘Family Secrets’ is set in a 1920’s Chicago suburb and told from the perspectives of multiple family members. This dramatic tale has it all: passion, betrayal, deception, forgiveness and a glimpse into the unconditional ties that bind a family together.

 

“‘Family Secrets’ is a very well written story, thoroughly describing the internal struggle of each character, how each wishes for their own desires, dreams and love. . . Once picked-up this book was near impossible to put away. Each page left you craving for more.”     -Lara Girdler, NCReaderGirl Reviews

 

“This book. . .had its fair share of, ahem, romance, but it was so much more than that. The story is full of heartbreak and, as you may have guessed, family secrets . . . The storyline definitely kept my attention, I connected with the characters, and the inference of several family secrets made me propel through the book quickly.”     -Carissa A.

 

“You felt for the characters that Kohl has created…There are surprises and tears along the way in this novel. I personally love books that start in the present, but tells you stories of the past (1920s) without getting you lost. Kohl did this beautifully. I highly recommend this book.”     -Teresa Cross

 

“Kohl articulates [the characters’] pain and passions beautifully…touches on ancient themes and emotions of first love, lost love and forbidden love. Combined with adultery, betrayal and necessary obligations, it makes for an enticing read.”     -Michelle Loh
