Blog Tour: The Secret of Joy by Melissa Senate



Rebecca's father couldn't have picked a more inappropriate time to tell his daughter about an affair that happened between him and another woman when Rebecca was really young. He wrote several letters to the daughter he had with the other woman and now he wants Rebecca to deliver them to a sister that she never knew existed.

This is a very touching novel. I can't imagine finding out that my father had a whole other life that I knew absolutely nothing about. I found this book to be extremely intriguing.
