A wonderful story, full of southern imagery, that reminds us that our parents are human too, subject to their own challenges and histories, and that forgiveness and redemption can be achieved through exposing oneself to vulnerability.

This is a book I found painful. It is well written and in some ways that makes it harder to take....it is easy to read about horrific child abuse and the power the abusive parent holds over even the well-respected adult decades later. Worth reading, but hard to take...especailly if you are an empathic reader. On the other hand, perhaps we should all be more sensitve to the long-lasting trama of physical abuse at the hands of a well-loved parent.

Entertaining and deeply movingDivine Secrets is about the complex bonds between mother and daughter. You'll laugh and you'll cry, and you'll never look at relationships quite the same.

Very much enjoyed this book. It may take a few pages to get "into" it, but give it a one chapter chance, and you will be hooked!
