Anna Clarke has faced loneliness for years, caring for a sick and distant husband. Recently widowed, with all that brought meaning to her life gone, the consummate good girl falls from grace in a moment of weakness and passion.
Horrified to find she is pregnant, she is surprised when those closest to her assume the baby is her late husband’s. Guilt and pride allow the lie to live until her deceit hits a wall when the biological father Dr. Matthew Carmichael comes calling.
Shocked at how one lie bled so easily into another, Anna realizes her reputation of devout Christian living is about to disappear like a leaf caught in a windstorm. She hears the whisper of her loving Heavenly Father, who longs to restore her soul, but does she have the courage to face the scandal and the truth of her feelings toward the handsome Dr. Carmichael?

This was such a touching story!
Anna’s Secret was a good story that made me feel like I walked away from it having genuinely learned something. The characters and their backgrounds were fed to us little by little, making it seem natural and conversational. Although both characters make some not so good choices, they do end up admitting their wrongs and being the better for them in the end. I personally loved Anna’s strength, and courage through some difficult times, and I think she handled her decisions both good and bad to the best of her ability. I think her mistakes really emphasized how we need to rely on God for all things and not our own strength. Matthew was also an interesting character and I enjoyed getting to know him. He led me on a journey of discovering the love of the true Father, making mistakes and owning up to them and learning to really trust people. Overall, I thought he complimented Anna very well. The plot was a true back and forth friends to enemies’ book, with some unique twist and turns throughout the storyline. This is my first time reading a book by Blossom Turner and I really liked her writing style.
I truly think that this book is a great reminder of lessons we need to keep with us on a daily basis. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars for the creative theme, the wonderful lessons, and the message of the gospel. I recommend reading this book.

MORE ABOUT WHY I WROTE ANNA’S SECRET
I am a hopeless romantic, it has been at the core of my being from a child up. I dreamed of a love that would whisk me far from the pain of my childhood upbringing.
When I first started to write Anna’s Secret, I had not yet learned all I needed to know about forgiveness. I was half-way through the book when sorrow and betrayal hit my marriage. (See “About Me” at https://blossomturner.com) I stopped writing for years.
However, as God healed the broken and restored my soul, words of love once again danced within my being. God directed that I finish this book weaving in all I learned from the crucible of suffering in my own life. Through understanding the restorative power of God’s forgiveness when humanity fails, I wrote Anna’s Secret with a strong thread of hope woven into its fabric.
Readers have expressed to me that the authenticity of this book has brought them to tears and given them a love story that entertained. However, the part I love the most … Anna’s Secret has inspired some readers to ask God for the help to forgive themselves, or for the power to offer the gift of forgiveness to another.
My prayer is that you will find Anna’s Secret an entertaining romance, inspiration to your soul, and that you will enjoy the happy ending … always a happy ending. After all, God is the God of happily ever after, and heaven is the home in which all His children will find the greatest love of all.
