My Rating: TBR
A thrilling domestic drama set against the power of the wilderness, Rea Frey's Secrets of Our House is a deeply-felt novel of long-held secrets and the strength of family.
Desi is the mastermind behind her dream getaway house. Nestled high into the mountains of North Carolina, it is a sleek place, a luxurious place, a dark place.
A place full of secrets.
Secrets about the man she longs for, a man who is not her husband. Secrets about the roots of her family that must never, ever, see the light of day. When Desi and her family arrive from Chicago to spend the summer in the mountains, the seeds for the tumultuous months to follow are planted—her marriage on the rocks, not knowing which way they’ll go. Her seventeen year-old daughter Jules, falling in love for the first time with a local boy—and forging a new path that will take her to uncharted places. And Carter—a man Desi knew long ago, before she expunged him from her life for good.
All hurtling toward events none of them can undo.
Engaging, propulsive, and with a dramatic, heart-pounding final act, Secrets of Our House is a dazzling novel, richly-drawn, that shows no matter how hard outside forces may shake you, the bonds of family are stronger than the harshest winds.

About the Author
As a published author of four nonfiction books and three novels, I’ve been around the publishing block. And still, there’s always so much to learn.
My passion in life is telling stories, connecting with readers, and helping other aspiring authors tell their stories too.
While my path to publication seems somewhat like a dream, it was a long, arduous process to get here. The only reason I got a four-book deal with one of the Big 5 publishers is this: I began to look at my book as a product and publishing as a business.
That was a complete game changer.
Now, as the CEO and Founder of Writeway™, I teach aspiring writers how to become published authors too.
When I’m not promoting my novels or running my business, you can find me homeschooling my daughter, spending time with my hubby, traveling, exercising, or plotting my next great adventure. WEBSITE
