Don’t Miss Sinead Moriarty’s Newest Release, Our Secrets and Lies, Coming 3/1/18!
Our Secrets and Lies is an inspirational, heartbreaking and touching story. This novel gripped my heart, sparked my anger, moved me to tears, and made me smile.
Lucy was soon to be a single parent, and her heart was broken. Tom, the father of her unborn twins, had abandoned her. He left her alone to deal with the fallout, including informing her parents of her pregnancy.
Tom was crazy about Lucy. The last thing he wanted to do was to listen to his father and leave the country. But, that’s exactly what his father demanded. And if Tom didn’t want to be cut off from his family, he had to listen to him.
Tom’s father humiliated and verbally abused Lucy. She was crushed. Lucy decided to make it her life’s mission to prove that Tom’s father was wrong. Lucy was not the lowlife that he made her out to be. So she gave up her dream of becoming a successful lawyer and devoted her life to raising her children and caring for her parents.
Although Lucy was a loving mom, she was intense and obsessed with her children, Dylan and Kelly. She didn’t realize that the pent-up anger that she’d carried for years, after being abandoned and humiliated, drove her to become overbearing with the twins. But, because of her micromanaging, Lucy almost lost them.
Unconditional love requires sacrifice and often the willingness to let go. Lucy discovered this the hard way. Painful lessons are never fun, but, it’s through them, that hearts, and lives, are changed. They are also the lessons that are rarely forgotten.
Sinead Moriarty writes a compelling, gripping and an emotional story. I loved it.
