<b> #1 BEST SELLER IN ADOPTION! </b> <b> OVER 200 000 COPIES SOLD* </b><br /><i>"Can you keep a secret? Can you keep a secret? I don't suppose you can. You mustn't laugh; you mustn't smile, but... do the best you can."</i><br /><br />How does a mother cope when she is forced to walk away from her three children and never see them again? That is what happened to JB's mother, Myrtle. <br /><br />Eventually, rescued from her despair by tall, dark and handsome George Rowley who fell in love her, Myrtle started a new life and had seven more children. She buried the grief of losing her first children deep within and kept her pain secret. JB and her siblings were unaware of the existence of Myrtle's first three children until after she died. <br /><br />Desperate to know how such a thing could happen to a devoted and caring mother, JB went on a journey to find out. What she discovered was a heartbreaking story of loss.

To redress that, JB decided to tell the whole world her mother's secret. 'Whisper My Secret' is a proud declaration that Myrtle did nothing deserving of guilt or shame.<br /><br />Book length is approximately 57 000 words.<br /><br />'Mother of Ten', the sequel to 'Whisper My Secret', is now available.<br /><br />*This figure includes copies downloaded during free promotions.
