Secrets That Define Us

Featured Short Story: Secrets That Define Us (previously titled Cheri’s Secret)

Her spirit reaches out to every person who has harboured a secret they were too ashamed to speak about. Her ghost laments not having spoken up. She allowed her secret to define her by believing the lie that she had no power. Hurt people hurt others and enslave themselves in the nightmare they so desperately want to wake from. One man can save her from herself, and the fortress she has built to protect herself. She experiences true love for the first time in her life, and yet the sacrifices that will free her from her torment are more than she can bear.
