How to Keep a Secret by Sarah Morgan
Three generations of Stewart women have all been keeping secrets, but they must learn to trust each other when the death of Lauren's husband, Ed, and the discovery of his financial problems bring Lauren and her daughter, Mack, home to Martha's Vineyard. Lauren and sister Jenna have always been close partly because of a secret about their father that they've never shared with anyone, and partly because their artist mother, Nancy, never took much interest in them. Jenna always has a smile for everyone, even though she's hiding the fact that she can't get pregnant. Sixteen-year-old Mack has just discovered that Ed is not her biological father, and Nancy has several secrets that she's trying to keep them all from finding out. Alternating chapters tell the story from the perspective of all four main characters.
