About this title

Synopsis:

Secrets & Deceptions tells a rich and emotional story of three generations of women and the men in their lives. Beginning in Germany just before WWII and ending in the 21st century, the novel recounts tales of success and defeat, love and rejection, and life and death. The family of Hannah, Sophie, and Madeleine, the three generations of women, is the focus of this entertaining and compelling book which also recounts the horrors of Nazi Germany and its horrific impact on survivors and their families.  
Helene had always been drawn to women like Anais Nin and Erica Jong who wrote unabashedly about the sexual mores of their generations. Secrets & Deceptions explores sexuality and the mores of each generation and provides a vehicle for describing the emotional trauma inflicted upon women of those times. The book explores how women have evolved and how their role in society has changed in that societal mores no longer control women's behavior as they did fifty to one hundred years ago.

From the Author:

"I was astonished at how little I knew about my own family as I researched my ancestry and the eras over which my novel takes place. It was and is a labor of love and has involved a great of blood, sweat and tears," Helene admitted. "When I began writing, I did not realize that The Holocaust would become a critical part of the story. During and after WWII, neither the survivors of the holocaust nor the combat solders were diagnosed or treated for what is now known as PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder). Many of the characters in this book were victims of this now well-known disorder"
"I have always been drawn to women like Anais Nin and Erica Jong who wrote unabashedly about the sexual mores of their generations. Secrets & Deceptions explores sexuality and the mores of each generation and provides a vehicle for describing the emotional trauma inflicted upon women of those times."
