As an amateur genealogist, my “job” is to follow paper trails to determine family connections and unearth long-buried family secrets. It's what I do. So, it should come as no surprise that when selecting fictional reading materials, I often choose stories about families, their history, and their secrets.

Such is the case with my latest read, The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery, a split-time novel, focusing on family secrets.

My complete review will be coming soon... Stay tuned. ( )

I could not put this book down until I read the last page. It was such a wonderful dual time story that had my emotions all over the place. The first thing I noticed was the cover. It screams of the days when soda shoppes were popular and family stores were prospering. The author does an excellent job of combining time periods together to create a journey of secrets, loss, family and unconditional love.
It is hard to pick out which time period I enjoyed more. When we are introduced to Glory Ann, I loved reading about her first love and how happy she was if only for a brief period. The author talks about the Vietnam War and the tragedy that families faced as they received news of the death of loved ones. Glory Ann was broken into pieces when the love of her life was killed in the war. I was quite upset when her parents were more worried about their standing in the community than what their daughter was going thru.

When we travel to the present we are introduced to Rosemary and Sarah. I loved the dynamics between these two characters. They both have suffered loss but there is a strain between them. The store brings them back together as decisions need to be made that will upset Sarah’s grandmother. There is much between these three generations with secrets that will have lasting affects on everyone. The emotions are felt deep within the soul as we travel from a marriage of convenience, the Vietnam War, unexpected pregnancies and family history that holds the key to long hidden secrets. I appreciate the author highlighting what soldiers experience in the war and how an idea is formed to help those coming hone.

I don’t want to give anything away, because like me I’m sure readers want to experience everything first hand as they open the pages of this book. With hard days ahead for one young couple we see the imprint it left on the family generation after generation. It was almost like the three women had similar lives but slightly different in how they handled their problems. The best part of the book for me was the brokenness that was felt as these three women face their past and repair family relationships.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Reads Blogging Program. The review is my own opinion. ( )

This was an interesting story that went back and forth between present day and the past of 1965. It goes between family dynamics, secrets of the past, and tragedies of the present. Sarah returns to her childhood home but finds that things are not as expected. The family is planning to close the grocery story that they has been in their family for decades. Sarah cannot figure out the reason for the closing or why they don't want her to revive the family business. A great story of forgiveness and family.

I received a copy to read, the review is mine. ( )

This is a beautifully written book that is very emotional. I did not want to put this book down. This tells the story of a grandmother, daughter and granddaughter. This tells the story of these women and the store they run both in the present and the past. I fell into these women’s stories. You will laugh and cry. I always love this authors books and this is one of my favorites. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

I was deeply impressed with this author's debut novel, and after reading this book, my admiration has only increased! Author Amanda Cox has created a powerful tale that brings back so many memories and evokes so many emotions of my childhood; even the book cover reminds me of the grocery stores in my Kentucky hometown.

Cox introduces us to three women in this dual-time novel that spans 60 years, and we can see how our society has changed from 1965 to today. There is romance in The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery, but what makes this book so special is the love between three generations of women. I loved the bond between Glory Ann and her granddaughter Sarah as they joined together to thwart the closing of the Old Depot Grocery, but I could also sympathize with Rosemary's desire to see it close. We witness so many facets in both of these mother/daughter relationships: Glory Ann and daughter Rosemary, and Rosemary and her daughter Sarah, and then, the very special ties between Glory Ann and Sarah. Cox vividly portrays all of the family dynamics, including pain, loss, multiple secrets, and eventually, joy and triumph!

The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery is a heartwarming story with amazing characters, an intriguing plot, and the poignant reminder that truth truly does set us free. I highly recommend The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery, but be prepared to shed some tears!

I received a copy of this book from Revell. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts. ( )
