Secret Keepers and Weber City Stories
by M.W. Joyce
Secret Keepers is the story of a young womans irrational quest for revenge as she searches for her biological parents. Through the softening influence of others she meets along the way, she becomes open to the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Readers will be intrigued as Alistar ventures into astronomy, Arabian horse raising, and western lifestyle, all while traveling a slippery path that eventually leads her to find romance and the recognition of Christ in her life.
Weber City Stories recalls the rural lifestyle during the 1920s through the early 1940s of a prominent family in a small community. The unique events in their lives will no doubt strike a chord of nostalgia with readers interested in learning about the times and seasons of the past.
About the Author:
M. W. Joyce was born and raised in Utah. When growing up, the author could usually be found with a book in hand while doing mundane chores much to the exasperation of everyone around.
Love of learning followed Joyce through the years. Attending a university in almost every state in the west, Joyce finally completed graduate work at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.
Joyces knowledge and love of words is put to use through writing. While living in North County San Diego, Joyce was a frequent visitor to the Palomar Observatory and became acquainted with Arabian horse breeding. Joyce incorporates both subjects in Secret Keepers.
The author lives with one son, Joe, daughter-in-law Leslie, and the family Golden Retriever, Jack, in the unique town of Draper, Utah, along the Wasatch front some 35 miles from downtown Salt Lake City. Joyces posterity includes six children, eight grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren thus far.
