Publisher's Summary

"It’s not the scars on your body that really matter. It’s the ones that are left on your soul. They are the ones that don’t go away."
Teenagers Julie, Heather, and Petra are grappling with the choices they face growing up amid the social revolution of the late 1960s. Julie struggles to be heard in an unsympathetic home. Heather feels that she is a burden to the people in her life, especially her single mother. Petra moves with her family to a town where she finds she is not quite welcome because of an unknown past.
When the girls find a tin box filled with letters from Petra’s great grandmother, Charlotte, detailing events from 1912, secrets from Petra’s family’s past begin to be revealed. As they learn of Charlotte’s tumultuous life, the girls are confronted with their own demons.
This is a haunting tale that touches your heart and makes you think twice about decisions you may have made. What if you could reach through time itself to guide your loved ones through difficult situations?
The first in a trilogy, The Tin Box Secret is a fascinating look at friendship, family, the challenges we face, and the choices we make to deal with those challenges.

Needed a better ending to get five stars

This was a very special listen dealing with growing up and what comes of our decisions when emotions get involved. However, there was no real ending. We waded back and forth through generations and then, no resolution.

The narration was well-done and was easily the best part of this adventure.

If you are okay with no real ending, then there are some really good things about this story, including the narration.

Stick with it!!

I gave up on this one twice before sticking with it the third time, and I'm so glad I did because I ended up really enjoying it. The first few times I gave up after 20-30 minutes because it seemed more of a YA story...it isn't, though! There's plenty of adult subject matter and heavy issues in this book. After about an hour, I couldn't stop listening. I finished it in one day. The narrator did a great job, too. I can't wait to listen to the next 2 books in the trilogy!
I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
