Daddy's Little Secret
In two storylines, one historical, one contemporary, Daddy's Little Secret shows the struggle of some members of a family to overcome its shameful history, and the determined efforts of others to destroy them. Shortly before the American Revolution Rebekah Harrison, a minister's daughter and midwife, leaves England for America. A man calling himself "Isaac Beckett" leaves his past life buried in the stormy sea and builds a new life with Rebekah in America. Years later, as the couple awaits the birth of their second grandchild, Isaac's past comes back to haunt him and wreak havoc with his family. Two centuries later Peter Farrington and Evelyn Spencer are both intelligent, well-educated, successful people who happen to be romantically involved with each other. But their future may be jeopardized by confusing and perplexing questions that plague Evelyn about her late father's past. Peter decides to help Evelyn in her relentless pursuit of the truth about her father. But decisions made long ago inevitably lead Evelyn to a deadly confrontation. Will she and Peter be able to escape with their lives, or, like many others before, will they be destroyed by her Daddy's Little Secret?
