Jane Fallon: Skeletons

Jen has discovered a secret. It's not hers to share, but is it hers to keep? If she tells her husband Jason, he might get over the shock but will he forgive her for telling the truth? She might drive a wedge through their marriage. If she tells someone else in Jason's family - the family she's come to love more than her own - she'd not only tear them apart but could also find herself on the outside: she's never really been one of them, after all. But if she keeps this dirty little secret to herself, how long can she pretend nothing is wrong? How long can she live a lie? Jen knows the truth - but is she ready for the consequences?

This is a very interesting story about loyalty within a family and in-laws. Jen's feelings for her family and the members of her husband's family are well described and help identify with all characters. Ultimately, some parts are exaggerated, but overall a great read.
