Review: The Color of Secrets

Available April 14th: The Color of Secrets

***2.5/5 stars-it was ok, but something was missing

Long buried secrets have a way of finding their way to the surface in this historical novel.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like a bit of chic lit in your historical fiction,
  • And If you like that uncovering family secrets thing, this one is for you.

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 2.5/5 characters
  • 2.5/5 plot
  • 2.5/5 overall
  • 2/5 steaminess


Race, class and gender intersect in this World War II-era ebook from Lindsay Ashford: Eva lives in a state of confusion and uncertainty as she tries to negotiate a world that may or may not still include her husband and the father of her young son, presumed missing at sea.  But when she meets a Black American soldier to whom she cannot help but be drawn, life becomes irrevocably more complicated.  The ensuing turn of events may surprise readers, who are in for a tone in the dialogue that feels far more contemporary than historical, and somewhat distracts from the story.

Available on Amazon for 3.99 on April 14th
