Adriana’s Secrets by Cheryl Colwell, makes easy yet compelling reading.
Despite the major losses in her childhood, and other hardships throughout her life, Adriana refuses to become embittered. She doggedly, maintains her grace and gentle demeanor despite being bullied.
Naturally, she endures spiteful and controlling behavior at the hands of, not only some of the men in her life, particularly Fabio, but also her own sister, Ladonna. Their presence causes much consternation and fear. Fabio’s brother Rico, becomes a constant kind heart that she can count on, therefore, it is a surprise when he marries another woman, and Adriana another man.
Along with her sister Ladonna, the girls are thrust into what can only be called a nightmare, where right from wrong, and true discernment is quickly learned, otherwise life and people will destroy them in an effort to retain massive wealth from opal mining.
How friends and neighbors, male and female, encourage or use them keeps you turning the pages, not wanting the tale to end.
Does good triumph? Do they find their true destiny and the desires of their hearts? That’s for me to know and you to find out for yourselves, by reading the book.
I had ample time to read this book, having been given a generous time-frame in which to do so, however, it took me just three days from start and finish. Well worth reading. Good characters and story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publishers and author, in exchange for an honest review.
