Can a secret be so powerful that it destroys everything you know? For Mary Jacovitch, whose family history is built on deceit and tragedy, the answer is yes. Entrusted at age seven with her dying father’s dark secret, as a teenager Mary seeks to escape this knowledge and her overbearing mother through promiscuous behavior—but her actions have serious consequences. As Secrets Unfold begins, Mary tries to hide the reality of her pregnancy, but the truth inevitably is revealed. This birth triggers a landslide of tragic events touching everyone in her life: her brother, Steve; her mother, Jean; her adult lover, Ryan; her own newborn son, Nickolai; and beyond. As these pressures prove too great for Mary’s young mind and the strands of sanity unravel, it becomes clear that, for better or for worse, no one’s life will ever be the same again.
This book was a very easy read. I liked the plot to the book even though I wish it would have gone more into details with things. It kinda just threw you in their life's with every little info. But in all it was a good book and the ending was a shocker and not something I was expecting! It is a book I would like to see a sequel to to find out what happens with the family and the baby. I give it 4 penguins.
