Family Secrets is an American romance based on the novel by Brazilian novelist Marileide Andersen. It is the story of two young people manipulated by the circumstances that begin in 1968, when a fragile daughter tries to break away from the control of her wealthy father and a secret revealed at random triggers unusual entanglements for years to come. 

This is a story of parallel lives and the triumphant power of love. It involves an undying romance that manages to overcome tragedies from the past and the resultant problems carried into the present. 

Finally, it is about a young grandson guided only by courage and willpower, who tries to solve the big secret that might destroy his family forever.

Marileide Andersen seeks in reality the inspiration to create her works of fiction. Now, she invites you to the launch of her debut novel, Family Secrets, which will be published simultaneously in English and Portuguese.

" I write because I love, at least eat reasonably. I’m basically talking about my advertising writing now, which I have done publish for the past 25+ years. I write books because I enjoy the experience: coming up with a storyline, then seeing where it takes me and sticking with it. It’s like running a marathon. It’s not going to go quickly, because there is a process. A writer must be committed for the duration. But at the finish, the reward is there."
