Chloe Sinclair has loved her husband, Nate, for years. Loved him even through their world falling apart. When she comes home one night to find Nate gone, Chloe is concerned- but mainly because he is returning to their childhood town- a place of bad memories. Chloe soon finds out that Nate is keeping secrets, though- secrets that Chloe wants to know- but is afraid to know.
Chloe’s no stranger to secrets (in fact she’s keeping one herself)- but wishes that Nate would confide in her. When she discovers a notebook inside Nate’s antique The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe– she’s unsure of what to make of the notebook. Curiously, it is written in code- but is that to keep it a secret from Chloe? Or someone else?
As Chloe delves deeper into the mystery of the missing Nate, she figures out the code for the notebook- with each clue she uncovers, she’s reminded of how she first met the Sinclair’s, the fun, the pain, the hurt- and ultimately the love she received from some of them. Chloe struggles to understand the past, to make sense of her future- and to figure out where the secrets between her and Nate leave them.
As Chloe learns, some secrets won’t stay buried forever……
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
The Book of Secrets is my first Elizabeth Joy Arnold- but will not be my last. The story of Chloe and Nate- the reader knew some details, some reasons their marriage why their marriage wasn’t great. With each section of the book, as more information is revealed- the reader is further captured into the story. When finally all secrets are revealed- it’s a book that that needs to have time to be thought over, to discuss with others. Interesting, enjoyable- definitely recommend!
