Family secrets From the war-wracked Balkan hills to her hometown in Appalachia, photojournalist Memphis Maynard seeks the truth about past family secrets and her own future in Linda Anderson's The Secrets of Sadie Maynard. Memphis returns to the small West Virginia town of Yancey to solve the mystery of who murdered her grandmother, Sadie Maynard, decades earlier. Memphis is also haunted by her own past, which involves reporter Jake Bishop, her wartime lover and father of her daughter. As Memphis tries to unravel the truth about her grandmother's life and death, she must decide whether Cutter Tate, the grandson of the man believed to be Sadie's killer, will now be her ally and love or her worst danger.
