About the Book

Sheila Franklin has lived three separate lives. Now a conservative pastor’s wife in Chicago, she is skilled at hiding secrets—a talent birthed during childhood romps through the music-filled streets of New Orleans. But when the son she bore at the age of eighteen comes back looking for answers and desperate for help, her greatest secret—and greatest regret—is revealed.

Eager to right past wrongs, Sheila’s heart floods with memories of lyrical jazz music and a worn-out Bible. But when her husband learns of her shady history, Sheila is suddenly faced with an impossible decision: embrace the dream—and son—she abandoned against her will or give in to the demands of her safe but stifled life. As she struggles to reclaim both her son and her identity, Sheila soon realizes that God’s grace spans both seas and secrets and that He is all she really needs. With dynamic writing that makes the reader feel the heartache of a teenage mother, struggle with the disillusionment of an abandoned boy, and revel in the idea of grace despite flaws, rising star Patti Lacy takes her fans on a journey they won’t want to end—and won’t soon forget.

Book Review  by Linda Fegins

The Rhythm of Secrets is a moving story about  a  young girl  growing up in  the jazz filled life  of New Orleans  discovering  secrets about her family,  and experiencing  loss, heartbreak  and bigotry which leads her to artfully  masks  her secrets.  It is a stirring  story of  God’s grace,  discovering the true love of God, endurance and  overcoming a past of shame and loss. Patti Lacy’s, colorful  yet real  life characters, and the elegance of her  language  and the rhythm of the words captivated me . I kept turning the pages to discover where this young girl, now woman who was stripped of her original name and given two other names, next journey will  lead her.  It lead her to faith, love and spiritual freedom.
