SECRETS MOTHERS KEEP A Domestic Suspense with a Heartbreaking Twist

by | Read by Jennifer Jill Araya

Mystery & Suspense • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Jennifer Araya shines as Cora Maxwell, single mother of teenage Ezra since her husband's death. One night, she can't reach Ezra, and her boyfriend, investigative reporter Riggs, receives notification that a teenage boy has been beaten and left for dead. Cora races home, finding Ezra. Araya perfectly depicts her fear, her short-lived relief, and her new fear when she finds bloody clothes in the washer and connections to the victim. As the investigation ramps up, a hate crime is suspected, and the community faces many hard truths. Araya perfectly voices the roller coaster of emotions Cora experiences and seamlessly transitions between the present and letters written over the past few years by Ezra to his late father. Heartbreaking, surprising, and relevant. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
