For fans of Jodi Picoult, Kim Edwards, and William Landay, The Deepest Secret is part intimate family drama, part gripping page-turner, exploring the profound power of the truths we’re scared to face . . . about our marriages, our children, and ourselves.   Eve Lattimore’s family is like every other on their suburban street, with one exception. Her son Tyler has a rare medical condition that makes him fatally sensitive to light, which means heavy curtains and deadlocked doors protect him during the day and he can never leave the house except at night. For Eve, only constant vigilance stands between an increasingly restless teenage son and the dangers of the outside world.   Until the night the unthinkable happens. When tragedy strikes, it becomes clear that this family is not the only one on the quiet cul-de-sac that is more complicated than it appears. And as Eve is forced to shield her family from harm, there are some crises she cannot control—and some secrets that not even love can conceal.   Deeply moving and stunningly suspenseful, The Deepest Secret is a novel of rare power—a story about hope and forgiveness, about the terrifying ways our lives can spin out of control and the unexpected sacrifices that may save us.   Advance praise for The Deepest Secret   “Every family is vulnerable, and every parent knows it. Carla Buckley masterfully portrays a family trapped in a heart-wrenching crisis. A memorable novel about how far a parent will go for her child, The Deepest Secret will make you count your blessings.”—William Landay, New York Times bestselling author of Defending Jacob   “An electrifying and sensitive portrait of an ordinary family struggling with tragic circumstances . . . Every page aches with searing emotions that build to a heart-healing conclusion.”—Chevy Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of Always Watching   “The Deepest Secret is a mesmerizing page-turner for the era of Big Brother and constant surveillance: Who is guilty and who is innocent? Loved ones are not exempt from suspicion, as the devastating power of a mother’s love has unimaginable consequences that kept me riveted until the very end.”—Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Aviator’s Wife

4.0 The Deepest Secret
I had NO idea what to expect when I started reading The Deepest Secret. Straight adult contemporary is not a genre I venture into often. I used to read a lot of Jodi Picoult, but it has been many, many years. And yet, I have always said that I read books based on blurb, not genre. If the blurb inter...

Carla Buckley's latest novel, The Deepest Secret, poses not only the question about how well do you know the people around you, but also that the line between right and wrong isn't always clearly defined. I was exited to read it after I enjoyed Buckley'sThe Things That Keep Us Here in 2012, and int...

If you are a mother, just how far would you go to protect one of your kids? This is the question almost every reviewer is asking and with the premise of this novel being about a mother keeping her very sick (pretty much terminal) child safe at the expense of everything and everyone else, then this ...
