Submitted by: Sybil Nelson Books
(OPENPRESS) October 13, 2010 - What would you do if you had one chance to kill the man who raped your twelve-year-old sister? No Judge. No Jury. No one would know.
In Secrets of Eden ($5.99 Solstice Publishing, 2010), seventeen year old child prodigy Garret Anthony has to answer that question. As he holds a gun to the head of his sister's rapist, he flashes back to his traumatic past: five-years-old in a foster home, seven-years-old stealing food to survive, and at 16 visiting his black father in prison for the first time. After years of fighting to secure a stable life for himself and his sister, he finally has a scholarship to a prestigious Washington DC private school and the love of a Virginia senator's daughter. But this new found and tenuous happiness begins to unravel once he reveals the family secret which is the catalyst to the painful decision he must make. Can he take the life of someone else and continue to live with himself?
Ann Simko, author of Fallen says, "Secrets of Eden grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go until the last page."
Author Tina DC Hayes says, "Leslie DuBois' vivid characters touched my heart as I read this unforgettable story of a teenager determined to protect his little sister, no matter what it costs him; the plot brims with emotion and realism, and I was hooked like a trout from the first paragraphs."
