Marriage under fire  Mar 6, 2007
Roxanne Henke blows away naysayers who rate Christian fiction as sub-par. This story was not mindless entertainment: its sometimes difficult scenes serve as a serious warning to those who allow their marriage to slip right out of their hands and then say, "What happened?". Each partner in two generations of couples must take a hard look at what they have done to contribute to their strife, and begin seeking God for strength to amend their ways before it's too late. In these days where marriage is not championed by many, we need an honest story to help us see why it is worth saving.
 
Fiction based on Truth  Feb 13, 2007
Roxanne does it again...the only problem is that we have to wait again for her next book. What a wonderful book about love and marriage and all that goes into it--and how easy it is to get sidetracked and lose focus on what is important. This should be required reading for spouses in crisis and for those considering getting married. One thing that is really important is how it is really made evident that it takes two to make a marriage work. Great Job! Please read--you won't be disappointed.
 
You just gotta love Roxanne's books!  Feb 13, 2007


The Secret of Us is a beautifully written story about Donnie Dunn, his wife Laura, their daughter, Anastasia (Stasha) and the complexities of marriage.

After 23 years Donnie and Laura learn that distance does not make the heart grow fonder if there is no unity, while Stasha learns what it takes to make a marriage work as a newlywed to Josh Mckay. During these difficult times, each one begins to listen to the "voice" that gently instructs them on patience, trust and the meaning of hope.

Donnie is competitive and a successful owner of an ad agency in Carlton, North Dakota. His goal is to be known as the best ad agency in the Midwest and plans to expand to Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is so consumed by the success that his marriage is suffering, unaware of the emotional distance between he and Laura. When his mother becomes seriously ill, Donnie begins to acknowledge his absence has harmed their marriage. But is it too late to make a change?

Laura lost sight of her own dream of opening an art gallery in town. She supported Donnie as he built the ad agency while staying at home to raise their only child. Now she lives in a shell of a marriage that looks great from the outside. To deny her loneliness Laura overloads her schedule with bible study, volunteering and helping her friend Karen open HER art gallery. Torn between her vows of marriage and her unhappiness, Laura relies on God to show her the way toward love through her faith.

Stasha is an only child who is stubborn and immature, blessed with a life of privilege. She has been planning her wedding since she was five years old. Stasha's idea of the perfect marriage is based on her parent's relationship and romance novels. Reality came crashing in when they could only afford a dumpy apartment that did not have the luxuries she grew up with. After they both graduated from college she envisioned a high-paying job that would take them both far away from Carlton. However Josh received three job offers and took the one in town.....Stasha did not receive one. This first year of marriage teaches
Stasha that she cannot go back home to Mom and Dad when problems arise.... home is
with Josh, where the "voice" instructs her that love can persevere in chaos and
disappointment.

Roxanne Henke offers insight into how couples muddle their way through indifference and high expectations in The Story of Us. She reminds us in First Corinthians 13:4-8 and Song of Solomon 8:7 that love is the handmaiden to Grace and that Grace only requires our willingness to accept the universal truth of love's enduring strength.

Armchair Interviews says: Another great book from Roxanne.
 
The Secret of Us Receives Novel Reviews Highest Recommendation  Jan 15, 2007
The Secret of Us is a story of longing--a story of life. Laura had learned not to voice her longings but hid them behind childrearing and her husband's efforts to build a business. Over the years, she and Donnie had stopped communicating their dreams. Written from each perspective, Henke presents the struggles of more than just Laura. Donnie can't understand why he's feeling guilty. He has no reason to. Yet ... it's so much easier to leave things be--don't "open Pandora's Box."

Henke draws her reader into the Dunn's lives from page one. Henke breaks all the rules and does it with a distinctive flair. Deep characterization, rich descriptions and a storyline that resonates, all add up to a sterling read--one you'll be sorry to see end.

I won't spoil The Secret of Us by revealing the ending, but it's a poignant reminder to keep our dreams and love alive. The Secret of Us receives Novel Reviews' highest recommendation - 5 stars.
