Nothing will break this mother-daughter bond. Not even the truth.

Deborah Monroe and her daughter, Grace, are driving home from a party when their car hits a man running in the dark. Grace was at the wheel, but Deborah sends her home before the police arrive, determined to shoulder the blame for the accident. Her decision then turns into a deception that takes on a life of its own and threatens the special bond between mother and daughter.

The Secret Between Us is an unforgettable story about making bad choices for the right reasons and the terrible consequences of a lie gone wrong. Once again, Barbara Delinksy has delivered a riveting study of family and a superbly crafted novel, perfectly targeted to reading groups and fans of provocative fiction.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Secret Between Us
Average rating

Very good plot
July 9th, 2015
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. The plot is interesting, the characters are well-developed, and the story is well told. There are, however, a few things I didn't like much about the book. First, there are sometimes long descriptions that are not always helpful to the story. There are also some details that seemed inconsistent to me. For example, I didn't understand how Deborah knew where Tom lived. It is never said in the book that he gave her his address. In fact, he never even gave her his phone number; she got it from the caller ID. Also, at one point, Deborah is speaking on the phone with John and says she realized she spoke his name. However, I reread the dialogue, and Deborah not once said his name... I know these are not important details, but there the kind of things that annoy me as a reader. Nevertheless, this was a great book, and I will not hesitate to read more of Barbara Delinsky's books.

I loved the book, but there are so many unfinished stories, am wondering if there is a follow-up book published or coming?
