The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery by Amanda Cox // Review


After the death of her husband Sarah returns to her hometown to revives her dream of running the Old Depot Grocery alongside her mother and grandmother. Working together brings secrets from the past to the surface, can they save the store and make peace with the past. 

A story that weaves together the lives of three generations of women, jumping through pivotal moments in their lives, and the reasons for the secrets that they each keep. In some ways the construction of the story made it a slow start as the pieces took a while to come together, I really enjoyed getting to know each of the ladies through the snapshots of their lives. Clarence was probably was one of my favorite characters, and he proved to be a wonderful man through and through.

Overall, a touching, and poignant read about family, faith, and the secrets that we keep. I liked how it explored the complex relationships, and the challenges that each of the women faced. A solid read, with great depth and well developed characters. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
