The Secret Keeper

            A Novel 


Can you ever go home again? When you are at the end of your rope and nothing makes sense, you must go back to where you started.  


Julio Rodas has lost his way, his job and his sense of worth after being driven to commit a heinous act, which threatens to destroy what remains of his life.  


He returns to his childhood home after a six-year-absence, seeking answers and acceptance.  


In a country struggling to reclaim its identity, Julio struggles to reclaim his own.  


The Guatemalan Civil War has left its sullied imprint on his and his family's past. 


At its very core, The Secret Keeper is the story of a son trying to reconcile with a family that has rejected him, and to seek the forgiveness of a people that has all but disowned  him.
