The Secret

$12.95

The parable of a woman with a secret will remind us how you can think you really know someone but everyone has secrets.  The dark are covered up. The holy are beyond understanding.  And the lesson of our secrets is this; we all think we keep secrets; actually they keep us.  God longs for us to be free.

 

 

The Secret is the story of Jillian Montague.

She's Irish and an actress and she's fallen for the Dake Family in a way she never expected.   Intuitive, Jillian’s learning their secrets; those sacred things people keep from knowledge or view of others, sometimes even themselves. Quarterback, Jude Dake has shared a confidence.  Dr. Ellen Dake’s mystery is about to be solved.  Stephanie Dake and her sisters divulge their spiritual secret and Jillian realizes that handsome smile isn’t the only secret-weapon John Dake’s handed down to his boys. Jillian’s learned sports broadcaster Dylan Dake’s infamous destruction has left a trail of heartbreak and coach Dwight Dake’s search for success has found her out. 

Jillian’s a witness to the conflict of how holding onto secrets forms a triangle—involving one and excluding another—that precariously separates and distinguishes friends.  In the end the secrets they try to keep divide and breakup the very relationships they long to protect. And the most dangerous secrets of all are the ones you hide from even yourself.  But God, always sees into the darkest depths of the heart and everything secret will be revealed in His timing so that we can be forgiven and free, redeemed and reconciled.

For anyone with a secret they’ve hidden away under shame.

For anyone who longs to have the courage to be more than their secret.

For the one who knows a secret has divided a relationship or stolen their joy.

For all of us who long to know the secret of living a life of faith.

The Secret is a story of spiritual discovery.  There is a secret to faith, of love and finding hope.

The parable of a woman with a secret will remind us how you can think you really know someone but everyone has secrets.  The dark are covered up. The holy are beyond understanding.  And the lesson of our secrets is this; we all think we keep secrets; actually they keep us.  God longs for us to be free.

Reviews

I think J.L Kelly is extremely brave. Her books deal with hard and real issues. Most authors wouldn't touch these issues with a ten foot pole. She not only tackles them but I believe does an amazing job shining God's truth on the darkness of sin. This story has so much complexity I wouldn't know where to begin. The common theme is how destructive secrets and sin can be in our lives. The characters each struggle with a secret that keeps them from experiencing the fullness of God's grace and the peace only he can offer. Within these stories there is also sweet and rich romances. This book is so worth reading but is very intense and not for young readers. I hope more readers discover this author and her books. - WENDI
J.L. Kelly weaves absolute realism into this romantic drama, and her masterful handling of intimate subjects is refreshingly honest. "The Secret" is a spiritual journey, guided by scripture, through lives tangled with lust, love, pain and joy. - LYNN D
