Tapestry of Secrets was not so Secretive!

A Tapestry of Secrets
Sarah Loudin Thomas
Book Summary: Now in her eighties, Perla Phillips has carried a secret since she was eighteen years old. When she sees her granddaughter, Ella, struggling for perfection, she decides to share her secret to show that God can use even the biggest mistakes for good. But before she can reveal what happened during that summer sixty years ago, she has a debilitating stroke. Carrying a secret of her own, Ella arrives back in Wise, West Virgina, to help her aunt Sadie care for Perla. Both know the woman wanted to tell them something, but she's now locked in silence. Together they begin looking into the past, but they may learn more than they expected. Will they have the courage to share their hearts? Or will the truth remain buried forever?

Review: I struggled with the book. I found Ella to be young and immature. She had good instincts, but did not always use them. I enjoyed the secrets, however so little of that secret was revealed until almost 1/3 of the story. I struggled because I am not one who likes a saga. So for me it was a mistake to pick up this book. I was dazzled by learning a long held secret. The writing was solid, and the characters did mature. But overall this was not my favorite type of book.

I would like to thank Net Galley and Bethany House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
