She wants to know the truth, but some secrets might be better left alone...
Kate Thayer has a good life as a veterinarian, running the family horse farm—until she uncovers an act of unimaginable treachery by those she trusted most and learns that everything she knew about herself was a lie. Her paternal grandmother, the woman who raised her, is behind a number of devastating secrets Kate is compelled to discover. But the deeper she digs, the more betrayal she finds, changing her life in ways she could have never foreseen.
SHATTERED LIES is a women's fiction/mainstream/family saga novel.
About S. J. Francis (Nashville, Tennessee Author)
S. J. Francis was born to be a writer, but not until high school did writing take over. Always ready to take on any writing project when assigned one as a child, Francis wasn't aware, yet that it was a love for writing burning within the soul that welcomed the projects. It all started with the publication of one short story that had been rejected so many times, that Francis lost count that the writing bug awakened. S. J. Francis is a long time freelance writer, a University Professor, bibliophile, and most recently, a novelist. Francis is also a licensed pilot, scuba diver, avid traveler, and a disabled veteran. Writing keeps Francis sane even when life around isn't. An active voice for causes that involve animals, and military veterans, Francis is never at a loss to help others, especially the underdog, cat, and other writers.
With over three hundred publication credits, Francis writes for many publications, as well as regularly contributing to local newspapers. Francis' background also encompasses working as an executive producer for network and public TV. When not writing Francis can be found reading a good book, or spending time in the outdoors with the pets. As in all the stories Francis writes, in the end, good and bad, it's all about family.
