The Sinner's Guide to Confession

A novel by

From the author of Willing Spirits - a novel of three women, their deepest longings, and their most profound secrets.

Barbara, Kaye, and Ellen, longtime friends, are inseparable - but each nurtures her own secret. As a widowed mother, Barbara hides her persona as a writer of erotica. Kaye is having an extramarital affair that reawakens her passion but fills her with conflict. Ellen has lost her husband to a younger woman who is now pregnant - a painful blow, since Ellen and her husband were never able to conceive. But she is not childless.

Ellen is still haunted by the memory of the baby girl she had at sixteen and was forced to relinquish at birth. Estranged from her family, Ellen realizes that if she is ever to find her lost daughter - now a grown woman herself - she will have to confront her shame and rely on her dearest friends.
