Justin Fisher has it all , a wonderful career , a loving wife and child. Now in order to move on with his life , he is ready to meet his estranged family unfortunatley it is easier said than done. When Justin Fisher arrives to his hometown , he finds out that his parents have both passed away. Upon visiting their graves, he notices a small grave next to it – His own. How can this be, when he is standing right here? This is where the book gets very exciting as we are dragged into the world of Justin Fisher and we learn all about his empty past, why has he got so many gaps and how come is sisters don't recognise him ? Can Justin Fisher find out the who he is and why their is a grave for him or will he realise that in order to move on with his future, that the past doesn't matter or will his eager task to find out the past put strain on his new family and cause more heartache? A lovely and compelling story that in parts is quite heart-wrenching and the main topic of the story is a subject that actually happens in everyday life.

Description

From a fresh and exciting new voice in women's fiction, "The Language of Secrets" unflinchingly examines the lifelong repercussions of a father's betrayal. Justin Fisher has a successful career as the manager of a luxury hotel, a lovely wife, and a charming young son. While all signs point to a bright future, Justin can no longer ignore the hole in his life left by his estranged family. When he finally gathers the courage to reconnect with his troubled past, Justin is devastated to learn that his parents have passed away. And a visit to the cemetery brings the greatest shock of all--next to the graves of his father and mother sits a smaller tombstone for a three-year-old boy: a boy named Thomas Justin Fisher. What follows is an extraordinary journey as Justin struggles with issues of his own identity and pieces together the complex and heartbreaking truth about his family. With great skill and care, Dianne Dixon explores the toll that misunderstandings, blame, and resentment can take on a family. But it is the intimate details of family life--a mother's lullaby for her son, a father's tragic error in judgment--that make this novel so exceptional and an absolute must for reading groups everywhere. "The Language of Secrets" is the story of an unspeakable loss born of human frailty and an ultimate redemption born of human courage.
