Secrets and Lies by Rhonda McKnight

I received a free review copy of Secrets and Lies by Rhonda McKnight that's to be released next month.

Secrets and Lies is the story of a married couple, Jonah and Faith Morgan. Jonah is a successful pediatric cardiologist and Faith is a stay-at-home mother of two ready to get back into the workplace. When they met, Faith was a young widow with a baby at home. Turns out, they are each keeping secrets from one another, which all comes to head when false accusations are thrown from outside. There seems to be nothing they can--or really, will--do to save their marriage.

I enjoyed this book. I'd like to think that this book has a more realistic picture of marriage than most Christian fiction books (not that I think all marriages are this rocky, but I know that none are perfect), but I'll have to let married readers judge that. The fact that McKnight was willing to paint her characters in a more accurate but less pretty way was refreshing.

One thing that I did feel was lacking in the book is that Faith's first marriage seem to have zero influence--good or bad--on her current marriage. It seems unlikely that there wouldn't be some hold-over resentment, hesitation, expectation, or something from one marriage to another.

Secrets and Lies was an enjoyable read that held my attention from first to last.
