In The Rhythm of Secrets by author Patti Lacy, is the story of Sheila Franklin. Sheila has years of regrets and is eventually reunited with a son she had to give up long ago; a bi-racial son. Sheila has shielded her current life and her husband, from the secrets of her past, but they come home to roost when her son, tracks her down. It is then that Sheila slowly begins to reveal the secrets from her former complicated and controversial life.

This is Literary Wonders! first review of a title from Patti Lacy. I have to say that although we review a variety of genres, historical fiction has not been one that I particularly enjoy. However, after reading The Rhythm of Secrets, I look forward to reading, “What the Bayou Saw: A Novel” and “An Irish Woman’s Tale”, also by Patti Lacy. I have fallen in love with Patti’s writing style, which challenges the reader to take in and savor every word.
