Bestselling author Emily Liebert burst onto the scene in 2010 with her wildly popular book Facebook Fairytales, a media sensation that sparked intense conversation about the positive power of Facebook. Since then, she’s captivated the hearts and minds of critics and readers alike with her utterly absorbing novels about the real – life concerns of women and all of their complexities. Now Liebert returns with Those Secrets We Keep, a highly addictive and thought – provoking read about three women whose lives are forever changed one summer when their deepest insecurities — and secrets — are revealed.
On the surface, Sloane has the perfect life — an adoring husband, a precocious daughter, and enough financial security to be a stay – at – home mom. But after losing her sister Amy to cancer, Sloane spirals into a depression and can’t help but feel as though something — or someone — is missing. Desperate for some time away, she arranges a girls – only vacation in Lake George with her dear friend Hillary. The perfect antidote to Sloane’s midlife crisis, Hillary has a good head on her shoulders. She has a successful career and a solid marriage; the only thing missing is a baby. She and her husband have been unable to conceive for years — and there is a very specific reason why. All plans for a low – key getaway are sidelined when Sloane’s best friend from college, the unpredictable, irresponsible, wild – child Georgina, gets wind of the trip and decides to tag along — uninvited. Known for stirring up trouble in the name of fun, she opens a door to the past that further complicates Sloane’s situation — and her own — shedding light on the real reason she was so eager to escape to Lake George. As the women’s lives become entangled, tensions mount, personalities clash, and dynamics shift, and they quickly discover that no secret can be kept forever.
Those Secrets We Keep celebrates the healing power of female friendship with three nuanced, authentic, and relatable characters struggling to come to terms with their respective truths.
