Books Info:

Secret Shame free pdf Julie Hawkins has a pretty good life, really. Or so she thinks. Marriage to a rock-solid, dependable policeman. Three lovely kids. A nice house in a smart suburb of Liverpool. It's the respectable comfortable middle-class dream. She has more, does unassuming little Julie Hawkins nee Brennan, than she would ever thought she might have aspired to. But her younger, wilder days, after fleeing a dysfunctional upbringing in Ireland, have left behind a dark, guilty, shocking secret that she'd hoped to keep firmly buried and forgotten. The tranquillity of Julie's life is shattered when her eldest daughter, Stacey, who's from a short-lived earlier relationship, goes rebelliously off the rails and finds herself pregnant. And then, just when life is getting back onto an even keel after that upheaval, the ghost from her past emerges and poor Julie seems fated to suffer more heartbreak. She begins a search, a quest of atonement seeking forgiveness of wrongs done to people in her former life. But will she find redemption? Secret Shame is John Needham's fourth novel and a companion book to the earlier The One of Us. It is a powerful, poignant essay in empathy, tolerance and understanding."
