One Secret Can Speak a Thousand Truths

Michael Rossi has an extraordinary talent. Every day, he sets out with his grandfather’s camera to capture incredible images like the ones his Nonno used to take in Italy. His girlfriend recently left him with a broken heart and he’s grateful for the distraction.

One day, he sees through his lens, a beautiful woman kneeling at a headstone. He quietly snaps her picture and retreats to his two-bedroom home in the city, developing the film in his dark room.

He returns to the cemetery daily and every day, the woman is also there. Finally, one day, Michael gathers the courage to approach her. It doesn’t take them long to fall in love.

Nicole harbors a secret, however. A secret that she is ashamed of and that has changed her in ways she can’t describe. If spoken, it would threaten the love she shares with Michael.

Ultimately, Michael becomes aware that something isn’t right. The words unspoken between them, become the most powerful of all.

The Gift…is exactly that…a Gift! It’s a surprising turn of events that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. The ending is so powerful, I don’t know where you can bring your characters to next. I was pleasantly surprised that you were still able to captivate me with the characters and their back stories just as much as in your other novels. This thriller is wonderfully written and I look forward to reading your next novels in any and all styles you decide to embark on. Congratulations!

There’s a lot to it…and all kinds of wonderful! The Gift” is a brilliant, captivating and chilling story. I became so engrossed in the book and could see the characters before me that I forgot to head out for the farm’s chores! By the end of the book I was already looking forward to reading more in the series (yes that’s a hint Barb!) – Patricia, Dalkeith Reply from the author – I am so thrilled to announce that I am working on the sequel, “Michael’s Choice”!
