Agree with the others... anticlimactic. "I had no way of knowing that morning that trouble was on its way." pg 70. She had me curious... but I ended up skimming... because chapter upon chapter there was really nothing.

This is the only book I have read by this author, and I do not enjoy her style. I'm not really sure how she became famous? The character says things that are robotic. One traumatic event took only two pages and is written like a scientific journal entry: "It struck me immediately that I had to stay in the bathroom for as long as it took." pg 289. Whaaat???

If it was a bibliography I would understand the lack of creative writing.

I found this book very disappointing. There was really no point to the whole thing. I kept waiting for something and after almost 200 pages, a wee bit of a plot, but really not much of one. I will not waste my time reading this author again.

I have been a fan of BTB, however this is a very disappointing book from this author. Its pretty boring and drags on for nothing. Her last few books have been a let down. Will think twice before picking up one of her books again

I have always been in awe of Barbara Taylor Bradford and her writing. However the last two books were disappointing.
In both books, ''Letter from a Stranger'' and ''Secrets from the Past'', I found that I was nearly finished the book before any secrets were revealed. Both were very uneventful reads. Not really intriging. Sorry.
