Where Secrets Sleep

Interview with the heroine from Where Secrets Sleep by Marta Perry:

1. Allison Standish, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I’m starting a new life, but not willingly. After a betrayal by the man I thought I loved and my boss, I decided it was time to start over elsewhere, but not in a small community in the middle of Amish country. Talk about different—there’s not even a Starbucks here! But the property left to me by my estranged grandmother is the only asset I have, so I’ll have to find a way to make it work.

2. What do you do for fun?

I enjoy everything a city has to offer—clubs, plays, music, museums, shopping—all the things my new home lacks.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?

I don’t want to make a final decision about staying here in Laurel Ridge. I’m developing feelings for someone here, but I can’t picture myself settling down in a small town for the rest of my life. But if I leave, I could be losing my best chance at happiness.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

I fear being deserted by someone who loves me. After my father left so abruptly and completely, I felt as if I could never really trust anyone to stay. And maybe I can’t.

5. What do you want out of life?

A few weeks ago I’d said I already had it: a fulfilling career in a great city and success there for the taking. Now…well, now I’m not so sure.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

The most important thing to me to relying on myself. If you don’t trust your happiness to someone else, they can’t let you down.

7. Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

I’ve never had much time for reading because my life was so busy. But since I’ve inherited a partnership in an Amish quilt shop from my grandmother, I’ve been devouring information about quilts in general and Amish quilts in particular.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I’d like to be more trusting. It’s beginning to feel as if I’ll never be free of the past, but being able to trust myself to someone else would really be a life-changer.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

Yes, I have a fat, sassy tiger-striped cat who rules the roost. Sometimes I wonder who owns whom in that relationship!

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I’m not one to dwell on the past—I’m more interested in the future!
