Nothing will break this mother-daughter bond. Not even the truth.

Deborah Monroe and her daughter, Grace, are driving home from a party when their car hits a man running in the dark. Grace was at the wheel, but Deborah sends her home before the police arrive, determined to shoulder the blame for the accident. Her decision then turns into a deception that takes on a life of its own and threatens the special bond between mother and daughter.

The Secret Between Us is an unforgettable story about making bad choices for the right reasons and the terrible consequences of a lie gone wrong. Once again, Barbara Delinsky has delivered a riveting study of family and a superbly crafted novel, perfectly targeted to fans of provocative fiction.

    " Ok, sort of dragged out the story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Amy | 2/16/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was a easy going family type read but the only thing I would have liked to read about more was Jill having the baby. Even though she wasn't the main focus of the story I felt she was a supporting character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nancy | 2/16/2014

    " This books explores how a lie can effect so many people, not just those involved. Moral dilemma as well. Teaching a teenaged daughter it's ok to lie? That part bothered me a bit. Easy reading...though it dragged through the middle. I wanted to scream "just get on with it!!!" Kind of neatly concluded, everything turned out ok, but you wondered how long that lie would stick around and would it ever be revealed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Stacie | 2/9/2014

    " A very quick read with a great story about a mother's devotion to family. This book also deals with the topics of peer pressure, family expectations, lies, divorce and alcohol. This would also be a great teen read and a great way to bring up these topics with your teenager. "
