Format: Paperback
Faith and Jonah Morgan would be considered the ideal couple. Jonah is a well-known pediatric cardiologist and Faith is a stay-at-home mom. After 10 years of marriage, Faith has a feeling that something is terribly wrong. Secrets and Lies by Rhonda McKnight take readers on an emotional ride of trust, faith and love.

Jonah is determined that his family will not have to struggle in the same manner he did as a child. Faith wonders why Jonah has become so distant. She thinks he is having an affair. In trying to uncover the reason, she uncovers family secrets and she begins to wonder about her marriage. After she confronts him, Jonah is accused of sexual harassment. Faith must decide whether she has enough faith and love in her husband to stand by him or walk away.

McKnight has written a very moving story. From the beginning, the reader becomes engrossed in the lives of the Morgan family. The reader can feel the pain, confusion and the lost of faith that Faith had for her husband. From a professional point of view, the legal battles, investigation and allegations of harassment were powerful and realistic. I applaud Ms. McKnight for having written a wonderful story. The story will generate wonderful dialog for any book club.

It's been awhile since I've enjoyed reading a book this much. Not only were the characters believable, their personal struggles were ones many people can relate to--busy schedules, the need to succeed in the business world, balancing family and work life, feeling appreciated, doubt, family secrets, and keeping a family and marriage together. As each page submerged me more into Faith and Jonah's story I found myself rooting for them and wanting them to figure out a way to work things out. Ms. McKnight did an excellent job of tackling the subject of sexual harassment from the angle of the accuser and the accused. Great storytelling!

Format: Paperback
In author, Rhonda McKnight's, debut novel, Secrets and Lies, Ms. McKnight does a superb job bringing readers into the lives of the Dr. Jonah and Faith Morgan, a well-to-do married couple that endures tribulations stemming from Faith's perceived selfishness and Jonah's work ethic and ailing heart.

This story is very interesting to me because not only does the author offer a real-world storyline suggestive of marital issues, she offers plausible solutions. The primary characters in this story, Jonah and Faith, face marital challenges such as inattentiveness, time management and lack of communication. Readers will learn firsthand what brings each of these characters to make the decisions they make and act in the ways that each does. I also appreciate Ms. McKnight touching upon the subject of sexual harassment in the workplace and how things are not always as they seem.

Through various scenarios set against a medical field back drop, Jonah and Faith are brought together to face and meet many challenges. Will their love survive?

I recommend this book to anyone experiencing marital issues. Reading it may give readers a glimmer of hope in learning and knowing that with God, all things are possible. I also recommend this book to married men and women, and even single individuals thinking of marriage not experiencing difficulty in their relationships. This selection is a reinforcement of the reality of the trials and tribulations of some marriages, as well as what it takes to sustain in a marriage.

I would definitely read another selection from Ms. McKnight.

Format: Paperback
In her heartrending, drama filled, debut novel, Secrets and Lies, Author Rhonda McKnight covers a lot of ground dealing with death, marriage, faith, and the peace that comes with walking in forgiveness.

Unable to escape the demons from his past, Dr. Jonah Morgan is on the brink of losing the best thing that's ever happened to him, his beautiful wife Faith Morgan. Without THE faith to muddle through past hurts and unforgiveness, this Pediatric Cardiologist refuses to come to terms with matters of his own heart, as he drowns himself in his work and the bottle.

With a style of writing that is unquestionably, suitable for the intended audience of Christian fiction readers, I was captivated from beginning to end as Rhonda does a first-rate job of illuminating the voices of the characters and the heart of God for his children even when they doubted His Power. It truly made me appreciate just how longsuffering God is and occassionally, I found myself cheering Faith on to keep trusting and believing in her husband.

I enjoyed reading this very believable story. I laughed, I cried, and at times, I wished I could dive in the pages and shake some sense into these incredibly convincing characters, to say the least.

Again, this is Rhonda's first novel, and already I am a dutiful fan and would certainly recommend this book to all, especially to wives who are overwhelmed with striving to be the perfect, committed, and understanding wife to a faithless, secret-keeping, workaholic, husband.

I am praying for a sequel. Would love to know what happens with Ms. Jacobs. Keep'em coming Mrs. McKnight.
