A Tapestry of Secrets by Sarah Loudin Thomas

★★★★★
Goodreads | Amazon
Now in her eighties, Perla Phillips has carried a secret since she was eighteen years old. When she sees her granddaughter, Ella, struggling for perfection, she decides to share her secret to show that God can use even the biggest mistakes for good. But before she can reveal what happened during that summer sixty years ago, she has a debilitating stroke. 

Carrying a secret of her own, Ella arrives back in Wise, West Virgina, to help her aunt Sadie care for Perla. Both know the woman wanted to tell them something, but she's now locked in silence. Together they begin looking into the past, but they may learn more than they expected.
Will they have the courage to share their hearts? Or will the truth remain buried forever?

A Tapestry of Secrets excellently continues and concludes Sarah Loudin Thomas’s family saga, Appalachian Blessings, in Wise, West Virginia. Familiar yet aged characters remain a part of the story, while Ella, the next generation of the Phillips family, becomes the focus. It’s a story about secrets and family and faith, and Thomas writes it so well. A Tapestry of Secrets captivated me, as the previous novels of the series did, and I absolutely loved the feeling and experience of reading it. Any readers interested in a contemporary (but also a little bit historical) read should be sure to check out this latest novel from Sarah Loudin Thomas. (But start at the beginning of the series first—it’s worth reading all the books. They're a delight and a pleasure.)

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of A Tapestry of Secrets and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
