Worlds Apart starts slow but picks up midway in the book revealing more of the interesting storyline to its audience. All families have some sort of secret not shared in the past but brought to the forefront in the present. You will enjoy reading about this family secret that unwittingly is uncovered through a person who has an illness and is recommended to readers of drama and family relationships.
