Lyhyt elämäkerta
Lynn Austin koesterde altijd al een diep verlangen om te schrijven, maar jarenlang kwam het er niet van. Toen ze naar Canada verhuisde vanwege het werk van haar man, gebruikte ze de lange winters om te gaan schrijven. Tegenwoordig is ze full-time auteur en houdt ze regelmatig lezingen.

Austin is een echt familiemens. Een levendig gesprek tussen Lynn, haar moeder en haar 98-jarige oma over de veranderde rol van de vrouw in de loop der jaren, inspireerde haar tot het schrijven van haar eerste grote roman: Eva’s dochters. Ze is blij verrast met het succes van haar boeken in Nederland, waar al 120.000 exemplaren hun weg naar de lezer vonden.

Lynn Austin woont met haar man Ken in de buurt van Chicago. In haar vrije tijd geniet ze van lezen, wandelen, de concerten van haar man bezoeken en zo veel mogelijk oude ruïnes bekijken.

Lynn Austin is een van de belangrijkste fictie-auteurs van dit moment. Naast contemporain en historisch werk schrijft zij ook bijbelse romans. Haar trilogie over Hizkia wordt nu gevolgd door een tweedelige serie over Manasse. Lynn Austin schreef diverse succesvolle romans en is een veelgevraagd spreekster op conferenties, bezinnings bijeenkomsten en andere manifestaties van kerken en onderwijsinstellingen. Zij woont met haar man en drie kinderen in Illinois.

This book was so close to being a five star read for me. The only reason I knocked off one star was due to the timeline. This book is set over six years, but after the first year or two, the character growth became stagnant.

Tropes: Resistance in WWII, Coming back to God

Content: characters sent to concentration camp (conditions described in detail), death of family members, bombing, kissing

The whole time I was reading this, I kept on thinking, "This feels like a second book." As it turns out, it is.

You can read this as a standalone like I did, but I do wish that I had read the first in order to know the characters better.

Tropes: friends-to-more, widowed single parent

Content: mentions a child born out of an affair

It's been a while since I read a book by this author but this story has made Lynn Austin a must-read author for me! All My Secrets is the tale of three generations of Stanhope women who've known joy, grief, and heartache. All My Secrets is set in New York during the last years of the 19th century and Austin gives readers an excellent view into the lives of the wealthy and affluent families who lived during the Gilded Age. This was a time when women were dependent on their wealthy husbands, and most were content to allow this to happen! Most, that is, until Junietta Stanhope arrived on the scene!

This is a stunning story that I won't forget, and I'd love to see it made into a movie. If you enjoy historical fiction and Christian romance, please grab a copy of this book. I believe that you'll be as entranced as I was!!

I received a complimentary copy from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review.
