Step into the secret lives of 25 writers . . . and witness the stories that shape us. 

Open the pages of Secret Histories to explore pivotal experiences in the lives of 25 writers. Share a life-or-death moment as a woman hitchhiker faces an angry, explosive driver. Climb to a sacred Tibetan mountain pass on a pilgrimage to renewal—and discover the cost of choosing life as a healer. Witness grief mixed with deep joy as a sister chooses to be her dying brother's caretaker. Flinch at a young woman’s shock as she discovers her father is a CIA spook. Watch the world shrink into a nightmare existence through the eyes of a young Japanese-American girl imprisoned in an American concentration camp during World War II.

These are just some of the powerful experiences that, when gathered in a single book, turn individual pools of wisdom into an ocean of knowing. Secret Histories captures the many faces of understanding, acceptance, and love. Self-discovery is never a solitary journey. To find our way, we depend upon the hard-earned wisdom of others who are brave enough to expose their deepest truths. As a guide to help readers navigate their own way through difficult situations and choices, Secret Histories offers rich insights into what it means to accept our limits and to transcend our greatest challenges.
