Four Friends, One Secret and The Weekend That Changed Their Destiny
Candace Walker, Kaylan Smith, Jordan Tate, and Tiffany Thomas have their share of sorrows, but neither of them realizes how deep the sorrow goes. What happens when they agree to meet for a weekend of relaxation in beautiful Napa County? Which one will leave the same or worse?
For Candace Walker, life has left her battered and bruised. Kaylan Smith has struggled with prejudice from her in-laws. After fifteen years of marriage, bitterness is trying to raise its ugly head for Jordan Tate, whose husband wants to call it quits. And for Tiffany Thomas, dealing with rejection has never been one of her greatest feats.
Although they have been friends for years, they thought they knew each other well. But will a secret destroy their relationship and bring the sisterhood to a complete halt? Will they be able to forgive and allow God to mend that which might be torn?

As I read the synopsis, memories of high school and college friends I’ve left behind by virtue of several moves came to mind. How much have they changed? How much have I changed? Years of experiences in different worlds creates differences of opinion, lifestyle and faith, making all a factor in renewed relationships.
In her book, Living Separate Lives, Paulette Harper uses the premise of four young women, each living apart from three mutual friends. Each woman has established herself in life as she has been able, and each has shared her life with others along the way, either in friendships or marriage.
And each one of them has, at one time or another, had a secret. A secret she might not want these three friends from her past to know.
Ironically, and through a set of circumstances surrounding the life of one of the four, these women come together for a weekend of renewing friendships and the unfortunate discovery of one secret. Or is it the fortunate discovery of one secret?
I’ll leave it to you decide when you read Living Separate Lives by Paulette Harper.
Readers of Christian fiction will likely enjoy this book. Those looking for a shorter read than some other books will find this one easily completed in one sitting or over a weekend. My only complaint lies in the ending which, for me, fell rather flat. However, overall, Ms. Harper has written a pleasant book about friendships, faith, and the choices we make.
