About the Book
In a dusty attic, Susan holds her sadness in check as she attempts to organise her mother’s stored memories. Boxes of journals written by her grandmother reveal a hidden secret life lived out during the modern world’s most dangerous conflict. Time slows down as the young woman relives her ancestor’s exciting life. The quiet dismissive old lady that she knew does not fit with the vibrant idealistic young woman she reads about in these journals. The identity of the mysterious ‘Keeper Of Secrets’ is ultimately revealed and this revelation leads Susan to a decision — she is going to escape from her ‘ordinary life’ and live a secret life of her own.

I have been a stained glass craftsman, furniture restorer, restorer of Player Pianos and music rolls, author (eleven books so far another on the way), photographer, basketball trading card manufacturer, basketball coach, basketball player, basketball referee, part-time shop assistant, newspaper columnist, homeschool dad, husband, father, grandfather, and a few other bits and pieces, and not in this order. I have been arm wrestling depression and anxiety for the better part of twenty years and I only just worked out that I’m not going to beat either of them but I do seem to be winning. I’m fascinated by people but I prefer dogs. I’m amazed that anyone does anything. I’ve learned that being still is not ‘doing nothing’.
