HOUSE OF SECRETS
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
Peterson’s overly emotional plot has occasional flashes of brilliance, but none of the characters are sympathetic enough to win the reader over. A heavy story about the turmoil of living with a mentally ill parent, the romance of the tale helps to balance out the drama.
Bailee Cooper and her sisters Geena and Piper have been enmeshed in one another’s lives since growing up with a mentally ill mother. Though they’re now adults, Bailee still finds herself feeling responsible for her sisters. When their father calls them to their summer home, the girls see it as their opportunity to put all of the family secrets out in the open so they can heal and move forward.
