Sophie Mathieson has a mundane life that she despises. Her job at Heller Co. or, as she calls it, Hellco, sucks the life out of her. Her husband is inattentive and spends most of his time running a restaurant and putting Sophie down. Her only bright spots are her dog and her husband's best friend and co-owner of the restaurant, Kyle. She measures thirty years of her life and marriage in terms of days serving a sentence. Nothing gives her meaning. When she receives calls and texts from a "Dr. Z" who threatens to reveal her biggest secret, she can't hold it together. How can she deal with this anxiety, who is Dr. Z, and why is he lurking at the edge of her life after all this time? Can she keep Dr. Z and her secret from her husband and colleagues? Find out whether there is any hope in Fractured Secrets by Lisa Alfano.
Fractured Secrets isn't your typical Christian novel, but it leans toward faith, which I like. This might be the most honest Christian book that I've ever read. Lisa Alfano isn't afraid to explore the darkest parts of humanity and the soul to show the journey through darkness. Sophie is in the depths of despair and needs a higher power to show her the way. I'm amazed by her journey and the discoveries she makes, while an intriguing mystery is unraveling her life. This is an amazing and inspirational novel, and a wonderful, psychological thriller. Very real and relatable. An excellent and intriguing read!
