Publishers Description Imagine you grew up believing a lie . . . a lie that was perpetrated by someone who loved you and really believed she had your best interest at heart. Momma's Secret is the true story of the author who discovered after reaching mid life, that his biological father was not the man he called, Dad, but a family friend ? the famous steel guitarist, Bobby Garrett. Rick Garrett takes the reader along on a journey through discovering the secret, to the pain of lost relationships, to forgiveness, and finally to restoration. Overwhelmed with confusion and the pain of deception, Rick tries to make sense of the spiritual and emotional battle that ensues. Momma's Secret is the honest, vulnerable writing of a man who must ask God to help him re-create his life with this newfound truth. Love wins out and forgiveness allows Rick to embrace his real father's history, his new relatives, and even legally take his real father's last name. Momma's Secret is a testimony to the human spirit and God's grace that can transform any situation and infuse it with healing, faith, hope, and love.

A truly touching story Feb 1, 2006
I thought this book was a very touching story of how a man found out late in life that his entire family had been keeping an enormous secret from him his entire life.The secret of who his real father was.This book also tells the story of how he got to know his father throughout his life and felt he knew who he was but was never able to voice his thoughts aloud. It's hard to imagine going through life not knowing who you are,and then to find out to late that the only person you felt a connection to was actually your father,and now that man was gone.It's good for me to know that there are still people out there that can forgive someone the way this man did his mother.It was also very inspiring how he overcame his anger through prayer and with the help of GOD and his family.I recommend for anyone who enjoys heartfelt, truly touching and inspiring true stories to read this book!
