After watching her granddaughter flounder in her personal life, Perla Phillips is finally ready to share the secret she’s carried for 60 years. But after she invites her daughter and granddaughter to visit, her life takes an unexpected and complicated turn.
Has she waited too long to share the truth?
Will she ever be able to say the words her daughter and granddaughter need to hear? Or will she be forced to watch their lives fall apart all because she stayed silent for so long?
Sarah Loudin Tomas’s novel takes us on a heart searching journey in search of peace and belonging. I love how A Tapestry of Secrets weaves the story of Perla as a young woman with her story as a grandmother.
The book is full of hope and second chances. It’s also a challenge to live in the moment and focus on what really matters.
We all have secrets.
There are things in each of our pasts that we wish we hadn’t gone through. But we can’t ignore those secrets because they have helped to shape us into the people we’ve become today. And we never know how God will use the dark places in our story to reach into someone else’s life and bring them His light.
This novel is a challenging, yet encouraging read.
What is the weight of a secret?
And what happens when that burden becomes almost too much to bear?
For decades, Perla Phillips has hidden the truth of a decision that still fills her with guilt. But now, seeing her granddaughter, Ella, struggle in a similar way, she’s prepared to finally open the past to her family, no matter the consequences. But when the opportunity is snatched from her in a most unexpected manner, will she have waited too long?
Spanning generations, this moving family drama weaves together the interlocking stories of two women as they navigate relationships, family, faith, and the choices that will shape their lives. Heartwarming and nostalgic, the story explores the courage to share the wounds of the past and celebrates the legacy a family passes from one generation to the next.
