Terrific read! Relationships, danger, deception, politics, humour....this book has it all, along with remarkable sensitivity. I can't wait to try her other books.

Love this author! The way she develops her characters to details, it's inevitable to dive into the story, and to want to find out the faith for each of them. Yes, this novel produced to a movie would be a success...Can't wait.

Yes, we all have something to hide, and this book explores what four women have to hide. At first you don't really see any connection but as the author switches from Petra in London to Lorrie in the USA, Bev in Africa and Li Jing in China we catch more and more glimmers of the "three degrees of separation". The wrap up almost caught me unawares. About the only problem for me was the rather skimpy parts for Lorrie and Li Jing. I would have liked to know more about them, but since their story was quite peripheral to that of Petra and Bev I can understand why they got less page time. I can see this novel being made in to a movie that would do well.
