The Confession of Tobias Tucker by Sherri Stone deals with family secrets. Innocent people are hurt when family tragedies are covered up. Most of us don’t have secrets of the magnitude of Tobias Tucker’s family, but the degree and magnitude of the secrets lead to an exciting story. The sexual secrets that most families hold don’t send us to graves, but nevertheless kill part of us.
When bad behaviors are allowed to continue, they can be passed to the next generation. If we don’t have the courage to report the wrongdoer, he or she will continue to hurt others. God doesn’t want family secrets. He says whatever is whispered behind closed doors, He will shout from the rooftops. There is a right way and a wrong way to handle family secrets, and Sherri Stone does a great job showing the difference. Her knowledge of psychology from being a social worker makes this story believable and relevant. I highly recommend this book.
