Gathering courage from her mother’s childhood lessons of faith, Caitlyn goes to school as usual one morning and just disappears.
Facing the world as a runaway, she has the challenge of hiding from her step-father and keeping her past hidden from those in her new world. She is desperate to find a home, safety and security. What she does find is a formidable, rugged and handsome Forest Thompson. He wants to be a part of her life, but there are so many things she can’t tell him. How many secrets can a young girl keep without being found out?
Keeping Secrets is a story of courage, determination and, most of all, it is a story of love.
