EVERY SECRET THING
Tatlock is a wonderfully diverse author who has written another engrossing story. Her superb characterization and spiritual insights resound, and themes of friendship and forgiveness are particularly meaningful. Elizabeth and Satchel are sympathetic characters that readers will be able to identify with.
Elizabeth Gunnar returns to Seaton, the prep school she attended
as a child, as a teacher. Just setting foot on campus brings back a multitude of memories - both good and bad. She befriends a student named Satchel who reminds her of herself as a child, and together the two help each other work through the difficult issues in their pasts.
