One thought on “Every Secret Thing

  1. Olivia

    I need all Ann Tatlock s books right now This one was simple, down to earth, and just relaxing to read It isn t suspenseful or fast paced, but it is realistic and full of such great descriptions of human nature and personalities I ll Watch the Moon is still my favorite, but this one came very close What makes this book so good is the fact that at the beginning you have no idea how the book is going to end When Elizabeth moves back to her high school home this time as a teacher she meets Satchel [...]

    Every Secret Thing was an endearing and timeless story that I really enjoyed reading Ann Tatlock is a skillful writer that pens authentic characters with narratives that really draw you in I appreciated that this novel was not a fluffy romance The main character Elizabeth Beth , is grappling with the meaning of life following her return to Delaware and her alma mater as an English teacher Lest I give too much away I ll just leave things here

    A review from my old blogAnn Tatlock continues to be one of my absolute favorite authors If she publishes a new book I will buy the book even without knowing what the book is about.This book chronicles a time in the life of an English teacher at a prep school in Delaware Beth loves books, even than I do I totally identified with her I also identified with the really normal pace of the story and the completely believable pacing in the story.Ann Tatlock weaves together Beth s memories, one of her [...]

    Part of me wants to call this a nice comfortable read which it is However if you re a Curious George like me, you know there is a little to the story This book kept me reading to find the secrets that everyone was holding back Not just things that happened, but also things that were felt were held inside, rather than bringing them before the other person and having a resolution The other thing that intrigued me was that the main character had a teacher mentor and was becoming that same thing to [...]

    I got this book for my birthday thanks mum and it took me a while to start reading it But yesterday I finally started it and I really liked it It was fun and it had a lot of literary references

    Ja dass ich das Buch nach einem Drittel weggelegt habe und erst mal 10 Wochen nicht mehr angeasst habe, spricht jetzt nicht unbedingt f r das Buch Das lag vor allem daran, dass das erste Drittel furchtbar langweilig war.Also Beth kehrt nach Jahren als Lehrerin f r Englisch an die Schule zur ck, an der sie ihren Abschluss gemacht hat und trotz dessen, dass mindesten ein Jahrzehnt vergangen ist, hat sie nichts anderes zu tun als sich ber ihren Englischlehrer von damals auszulassen Der hat sich n m [...]

    This story covers the past and present with Beth and Satchel the main characters I had found reading this book God inspired that I needed to read this book and the lessons learned by the characters are also relevant to me Also with reading books in the past I had missed much of what was behind what was written Classic literature and English classes went over my head in school n reflecting now in older years the light bulb moment has just been revealed I may have missed this if not for this book [...]

    I just finished reading this book and wanted to write this review while it was still fresh in my mind.First, I didn t realize this book was categorized as Christian fiction and I was somewhat put off by that I honestly don t think I ve read a Christian fiction title before and so I wasn t sure what to expect But I didn t want to be preached to.I picked this book up second hand, otherwise I doubt I would have bought it But I will say that it s almost unfortunate that this book is categorized as C [...]

    This book was annoying It is about a teacher, Beth, who returns to teach English at the Private school she went to as a teenager The story sounded interesting, but as I started to read I noticed a few things that didn t really make sense Her best high school friend shows up at her doorstep They haven t seen each other in 15 years The friend said that she left her husband in charge for the rest of the evening, jumped in her car and here she is When offered coffee in the next sentence, she says No [...]

    I didn t know this book was Christian literature when I started it and only after about 200 pages did it become heavy handed I had a few other problems with the book too, although it was a quick and mostly entertaining read a what else did Satchel eat other than dried mango If that was her diet, she would have had a lot of gas and upset tummy.b If Natalie and Beth are such good friends, why did they need to catch up on the rest of the gang in their initial conversation c Speaking of the gang, wh [...]

    BEST, BEST READ IN A LONG TIME I wasn t excited about this book Lately I d been reading lots of historical adventure type stories, usually with magic and dragons so this seemed like a pretty ordinary read to me I perused the reviews and decided that because there were so many top star reviews I d give it a try As I started I almost stopped, thinking this is boring I kept at it when the phone rang and I realized whomever was calling would have to wait I could not put the book down This story had [...]

    Meh I picked this up as an audiobook from the local library The story sounded interesting By the third chapter, it was just too boring to keep my interest I found myself constantly having to replay chapters over and over again, because my mind would wonder onto other and interesting things while I listened.Something about the name Satchel annoyed me as well I just kept picturing purses It just became very tedious to me I stuck it out to the end, and I wish I hadn t The ending is very Christian, [...]

    I thought on beginning this book that it was going to be powerful school group book along the lines of Secret History but this had no power in it While the main characters were likeable, they were not strongly represented, and the writing was fairly weak I did not know that the author was writing as a Christian from the book description, and it was only hinted at slowly, but the message from this book was completely about finding a path through prayer, and being in the moment with God Not great.
