To her family, she was the black sheep who befriended the local Armenian immigrants; to her son, she was a reliable, kind and loving mother; to her namesake granddaughter, Victoria was a mystery woman whose tragic suicide appeared to be a silent testimony echoing through time. In Victoria's Secret: A Conspiracy of Silence, Vickie Smith Foston takes a historical journey to the lifetime that preceded her grandmother's death leap from the top of a sixteen-story building. Past decades of family resistance and obstacles of concealment, Vickie discovers an ancient culture, a nearly forgotten history, and a secret past that was supposed to have been been buried with Victoria.
