It revolves around a teenage girl who gets lured into the fight for women's right to vote. The title comes from the fact that she collects and keeps secrets--including a very dark one involving a murder her grandfather may or may not have committed. I am also in the outlining stages for another novel set in the present, with flashbacks to the 1970s. No title for that one just yet. Release dates? Nothing immediate. (less)
