More from Donna

Anna Bentley needs a new beginning. Most women have felt the same way at one time or another. When life is routine and marriage & family are a struggle, where can you find true happiness? Anna discovers her new beginning in an unlikely place – the same place I found mine when I was thirty-three. Join Anna on her journey to reignite the happiness in you.


This is one of those books that really digs into a woman’s life and exposes the hidden secrets that affect her throughout her life. At the surface we see a couple who have been married awhile. They seem happy but slowly the darkness comes to light. Anna loves her husband and children but she is starting to see the fracture that is starting to appear. I liked her willingness to seek out spiritual guidance even though those around her didn’t encourage her. I felt at times that she was alone in the family and was just doing the motions of living. 

In the midst of Ana’s life is her daughter who wants her freedom and starts to distance herself from her family. I don’t think I really liked Ana’s husband  because he seemed emotionless at times. He was very controlling and Ana was always walking on egg shells around him. She tried to keep peace in the family  but something had to give. Can she find happiness within herself? Her secret that has been hidden for years has caused her turmoil and God always has a way of exposing sin. 

The book examines a woman who wants to find herself again. She longs for acceptance and hungers for unconditional love. The author writes a story that stirs within us the ability to be happy and know that God will always be there. Ana is a character that cries out to God for help as she understands that letting go of her sin  will set her free. It is a very emotional book with an ending that made me cry. 

“Secret sins are the ones that leave the deepest scars, because the guilt is a burden we carry alone.”

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
