Secrets Beyond Dreams

By Lauren Marie   

In 1976, the Whear children come together to pack up the estate of their parent’s after their Mother passes away. They find hidden on a shelf in their Mother’s closet her journals that she started writing in 1920. They never knew how their parents met and what they discover opens their eyes to a world they never knew existed.
Come back to 1920. Catherine Pieper is a country woman, married to her first husband, a gambler and drunk, who abuses her and treats her ill. They live on her father’s estate Layne Hall. The place she was born and grew up. Through an event that she feels is preposterous, she is thrown into a situation that if she doesn’t participate could lose her home.
In a school for woman, Catherine meets James Whear. He teaches her many things and treats her with kindness. James is working off a debt owed to the schools director, Jacob Mansfield. His father, also a gambler, died leaving the family estate, Whear Hall, in the clutches of Jacob. She is his last client and after she’s finished, his family home will return to him. <br>As their feelings for one another grow deeper, the time comes for her to return to her abusive husband. Will they be able to find their way back to one another? Learn what the secrets hold.
