INTERNATIONAL GIVEAWAY "THE SECRET OF LIES" BY BARBARA FORTE ABATE ENDED

NOVEMBER 1st to NOVEMBER 15th, 2011

THE SECRET OF LIES
by BARBARA FORTE ABATE


SYNOPSIS (borrowed from Amazon):
  Propelled by an insurmountable sense of desperation, Stevie Burke is recklessly abandoning home, husband, and outwardly contented life under cover of night; at last resigned to defeat in her long battle against the tortured memories of her past.
  Days later, lost and floundering in a dreary motel room without plan or destination, it is a long ago song playing on the radio that gently tugs Stevie back through the dust of remembrance. 1957 - The last summer spent at the ancient house overlooking the North Atlantic. A season which had unfolded with abundant promise, but then spiraled horribly out of control - torn apart by a shattering tragedy that remains splintered in fragments upon her soul. And it is only now, when Stevie at last lifts her eyes to stare deep into the heart of her long sequestered memories, that the long held secrets of past and future are at last unveiled.

I really like the idea of having a dramatic change in the characters of the books I read. I love that "A season which had unfolded with abundant promise, but then spiraled horribly out of control" is what was remembered. Thanks for the chance to win.
