My Review: 

The Secrets We Conceal is a great debut novel by the talented S R Fabrico. First off, I want to warn readers that this book deals with some heavy issues that could be triggering for some. I could understand Laura right from the start. I could see myself in her and relate with her. I was rooting for her to find the happiness that she so deserved. She is one that could inspire so many readers on how she was able to deal with the trauma she experienced as a young girl and followed her throughout her life. Those who have dealt with such trauma do not understand the long lasting effects it has many. The author perfectly portrays this issue in Laura. While reading, I was often having to grab my tissues at times. It is a story that played a lot on my emotions and could not put it down. 

The Secrets We Conceal will be getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoyed reading fiction that deals with real life and difficult issues. I will most definitely be looking for more books written by S R Fabrico in the future. I would love to see where else their talents will take their readers to next. 

I received a paperback copy of The Secrets We Conceal from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
