Here's what other readers have said:

“Last night I was up til the wee hours with Child Secrets. It was wonderful to revisit the Milford Haven folks again and to see them in such bold relief, via your descriptive prose. I don't think there's any question—this is my FAVORITE Milford-Haven book (so far!!??) The radio drama was one thing—this book series in another altogether!! It’s so much more complex and involving because you’re delving into areas that can only be reached with the written word. Thanks for writing these books!”
— Marilyn Harris, Tucson, Arizona

“Just turned the final page in Child Secrets. Truly, a delightful read! In no time, I found myself caught up in the story of the lives of the people of Milford-Haven. It’s fun and so informative. Thank you sharing your talent and knowledge of humans and life with myself and all your readers.”
— Pilulaw Khus, Morro Bay

“I just finished Child Secrets. I think it is by far and away the best of the series (so far!) I found the novel intriguing and fascinating, while educational and entertaining. I am amazed at how the complex lives of Milford-Haven only seem to get more complex with time. I can’t imagine what will happen to these individuals by the ‘end’ of their fictional life time.”
— Erin Thiem, New Zealand

"I'm almost finished reading Mara Purl's 'Child Secrets' and I can hardly wait to get back to it! Her descriptions are so detailed you can clearly see exactly what she wants you to see, whether it's an abandoned kitten half tarred into the side of a road, an unfinished house being built out on a bluff, or a beautiful sunset at "the Cove." I'd enjoyed the first two books in her series, 'What The Heart Knows' and 'Closer Than You Think,' and I was curious to find out exactly whose childhood secrets would be revealed in this book. I was fascinated to discover that everyone's childhood secrets are being disclosed, and it makes the characters so rich. There's so much going on in this book, and there are several cliffhangers. Everything seems to be going right for Miranda, and yet she reveals a wistfulness and a fear of losing her soul. What could that mean?? And those Chernaks! I dread to discover what that Wilhelm will be up to next, but I just have to find out what it is. And I must say, though it's disguised as pure enjoyment, I find I'm learning a lot from reading these books, especially this one. I found out all kinds of things about how to do a search on the internet, how an offshore oil rig works, how a professional singer prepares, what a mountain biker wears, how fresh hot biscuits are made, and the list goes on. I learn things without even realizing I'm learning them. If I weren't working with clients today, I'd be home reading 'Child Secrets!'"
— Jean Smith, Colorado Springs
