This one was a story filled with emotions (that is what I read Helen Lacey for) and many a moments had me go Awww. Kids somehow enliven stories if written with tact and that is what I found here. Lacey made sure to make T.J. an integral part of the story while she focused on Abby and Jake.

She showed how it is human nature to always find fault with what one has done and self incrimination is a common occurrence albeit one knowing that the reasons were

With the second book in her The Culhanes of Cedar River series, Helen Lacey brings us Jake and Abby's story in THE SOLDIER'S SECRET SON. It's an emotional reunion story of two high school sweethearts who let their stubborn short-sightedness tear them apart.

Abby puts a reader through a tailspin of emotions. I liked the type of person she was as a whole, but that keeping a man's son a secret from him bit really put her in a bad light.

Jake might have been rash when he was young, but the man he is
