Are you defined by your family, your career, your accomplishments? What happens when something you think defines you changes?
Emily McGinn, a recurring character from WHERE SECRETS LIE, believes she knows exactly who she is and where she belongs in the world, until she receives an inheritance from an unknown benefactor. Uncovering the source of the inheritance leads Emily to discover buried truths undermining what she thought was a straightforward life. As the truths alter Emily’s perception of the people closest to her, her perception of herself shifts as well.
Set in the unique foothills community of Boulder, Colorado and its environs, WHOEVER YOU ARE questions not only how we define ourselves, but also how we define family and whether we bear any responsibility for the actions of those who came before us.
Emily thought she had her whole life figured out, then out of the blue one day she receives an inheritance from a grandmother she never knew about and suddenly everything changes. I liked Emily’s character, I thought she was incredibly strong. If it had been me in her shoes, I don’t think I would have handled things as well as she did. I would have been extremely angry with my parents for keeping something so important from me. I think one of the reasons why Emily handled things so well though, is because she had Katie. Katie was so supportive and was just really there for Emily. She was my favorite character. Honestly though, I liked all the characters in this story. Well… except for Eric and that’s because I didn’t like the way he reacted to the whole situation. I thought he was being selfish.
Overall, I thought this was a great read! If you like stories full of drama and secrets then you should definitely check out Whoever You Are!
