Here’s the blurb:
“Luke” Hamilton has been living as a husband and father for the past seventeen years. No one but her wife, Nora, knows she is not the man she appears to be. They have raised their daughters to become honest and hard-working young women, but even with their loving foundation, Amy and Nattie are hiding their own secrets.
Just as Luke sets out on a dangerous trip to Fort Boise, a newcomer arrives on the ranch—Rika Aaldenberg, who traveled to Oregon as a mail-order bride, hiding that she’s not the woman in the letters.
When hidden truths are revealed, will their lives and their family fall apart or will love keep them together?
Compared to the first edition, there are a lot of changes, including a couple of extended scenes in the first half of the novel. Most of the changes concern the ending, though. I don’t want to give too much away, but I wrote four completely new chapters that deepen the romance between Amy and Rika.
In addition to changes to the content, my editor—Fletcher DeLancey—and I worked hard to smooth out sentences, remove repetitions, and make the reading experience more enjoyable.
Even though I removed a lot of unnecessary words and sentences, with the four new chapters, Hidden Truths is still a nice, long read, coming to a total of 157,000 words (about 500 pages).
Hidden Truths is available as an e-book from Amazon. It will soon be available from other online bookstores such as Smashwords and Barnes & Nobles and as a paperback too.
I hope you enjoy the second revised and expanded edition of Hidden Truths!
