Every Secret Thing by Ann Tatlcok is about how God sees all of us and calls to us if we listen. The author makes this point through the characters in this story. Beth Gunnar is a lonely English teacher who now teaches at the prep school she used to attend herself, where she was inspired by her English teacher, Mr. Dutton. Unfortunately, she felt betrayed by him and couldn’t stop thinking about it. She takes an unhappy student, Satchel Queen, under her wing and they develop a close friendship through their love of books and poetry.
I didn’t care for this book much because it is slow moving and the teacher-student relationship just seemed very strange to me. I thought it odd that Beth only seemed to care and be interested in one of her students. I liked Ann’s other book, Promises to Keep, so much more and was disappointed in this one.
