About The Book
What happens when a Latter-day Saint bishop is confronted with one of the most insidious problems of our time? Bishop Frank Lee Greaves reluctantly discovers the answer shortly after he is questioned about it by a friend:
Little does Bishop Greaves know that the weeks and months ahead will reveal a web of secret abuses amoung several of the people in his congregation, people that in all other respects seem so healthy and so normal. There’s a woman who screams incessantly at her children, a “righteous” man who regularly beats his teenage son to”pound a little sense into him.” and a prominent member of the community who abandons his family, taking their furniture and financial support with him. When it is discovered that a trusted fellow Church leader is sexually abusing his three daughters, the bishop is almost overcome. But more devastating even than this is his gradual realization that the post painful and unresolved scars in his congregation exist within the walls of his own home.
“It’s a secret,” she whispered softly, fiercely.”Everyone is sworn not to tell. It’s the deep, dark secret that you hold inside, because to tell it would mean to destroy the perverted balance of things.”
Even she, who should have known better, had agreed to remain silent. But this time something was going to be done. She wouldn’t have to remain silent too long. This time something was going to be done…
Powerfully and poetically written, Secrets is a must for all who have been touched by the ragged arm of abuse or who want to be supportive of someone who has been. A compelling novel based on true experiences, it offers solid information about healing and brings the reader to a deeply moving appreciation of the Saviors’ atonement. Secrets confronts one of the most serious issues of our day. And as it weaves a tender and intriguing love story, it passionately draws the reader into its powerful message of hope.
