REVEALED SECRET....SETS FAMILY FREE TO HEAL Jan 17, 2009
LaJoyce certainly holds my interest in her new book, "Revealed Secret". Walk with her heroin, Chloe, who, although she learns a life changing family secret, learns to cope with the trickle down affect that changes her family forever. I love this story, because it shows how mistakes of the past can be turned around by a loving, supportive family, and become corner stones of strength for the future. LaJoyce's characters in this story are down to earth, normal people like you and me. As you read this book, you might put yourself in Chloe's position and think, how would I deal with such a BIG family secret? I think it teaches us all a lesson, that family secrets need to be dealt with head on, and not kept in the closet for so many years that it robs us of time spent with family. This family secret will either make or break Chloe's family; read how she handles it. I enjoyed this book so much & thank LaJoyce for writing it; I believe it teaches all of us to be more loving & tolerant of our loved ones.
Strong Faith Message Aug 27, 2008
Chloe is having one of those days when nothing goes right. She was assisting in surgery when Dr. King nicked a patient's artery, spraying her with blood, which was bad enough, but then she goes home and finds her mother-in-law has been there and arranged her furniture. Chloe complains to her husband about this on-going problem with his mother, but he refuses to do anything. Then she accidently learns a secret from her pastor's past which involves her family, and suddenly has more problems than she can handle. We have all hit those times in our lives when we are overwhelmed, not sure what to do, and when that happens, we can only reach out to God and hold on. LaJoyce Shrom writes about ordinary people caught in extraordinary circumstances, and about learning to cope through trusting. A strong faith message.
It's the Plot Aug 16, 2008
In "Revealed Secret," LaJoyce Shrom tells a story that speaks to the mysterious sorrows and the darkened shadows of daily life and family life in our time. The characters search for and find the "secret" to life, brought to the light of day by the qualities they hardly know they have: cooperative spirits and love for others; and yet, there is much sadness to overcome, mystery to solve, and forgiveness to offer with the help of God's love. I found myself thinking about the plot and the characters after I'd finished the book, wishing that I had friends, and family, and neighbors like these people, who, despite their mistakes and their sufferings, offer hope by the choices they make. Like her children's story "Two Dogs With a Tale," LaJoyce Shrom's novel "Revealed Secret" teaches more than the reader realizes as the plot unfolds; one finds oneself thinking about the lessons of life artfully worked into the plot.
Trusting in God Jul 7, 2008
