How do you face the future if you don’t know your own past?
When an unexpected pregnancy changes her dreams, seventeen-year-old Annie tries to keep it from her mother and her grandmother. But secrets have a way of coming out. In a household of strong women, the arrival of a new life sets off a spiral of truth that reveals a past full of whispers and lies—a past that existed in another world under the heavy hand of Soviet oppression. This history has dictated the circumstances of the present, but hope, redemption, and forgiveness will grow in the rocky places of these generational differences.
A Silver Willow by the Shore is the story of the unshakeable love between mothers and daughters and of the impact that past decisions can have on present day circumstances. This novel weaves together the stories of generations of women, from the gulags of 1930’s Siberia, to the quiet oppression of 1980’s Soviet Moscow, to present day Tennessee. It is an unforgettable narrative of the treachery of secrets, and of the light that unites the heart of a family.

About the Author
I was blown away by this book! How amazing is it that three generations of women who have kept secrets forever changing future generations of women to come.
I will say you'll need to have a box of tissues because there are so many scenes in this book that will make you cry. I know it did me.
And then there are others that will make u hold your breath to see what happens next. This book did that to me too.
Not many books will leave you thinking about them long after you finish it. This book did for me.
I've found that it's not good keeping secrets.
Secrets have a way of eating you up inside.
They will fester and fester til you feel that you might explode. Either way secrets have a way of coming out.
Sometimes if you let them out it will make you feel better but then too it may hurt the person you love.
Love is the strongest bond a person can have.
There is the One who loves is stronger than anything. I'm so glad I have Jesus.
So many emotions see and feel you will.
The characters and plot were wonderful! Best book I've read so far and I don't say that lightly.
This book is so powerful and I think I will add it to my 2019 list of reads on my blog that is coming up.
I enjoyed this book so much! I strongly recommend it!
