The Secret strives to accurately chronicle the lives of Abbie and Roy Fischer while attempting to capture various experiences over the past nine decades that molded their personalities and shaped their family. But this book is more than a mere biography. It is also a love story of a young woman and a young man who, with mutual affection, respect and selflessness, have managed to remain deeply in love, and in the process show everyone how it can and should be done.
Chris Holmes lives in St. Louis, Missouri, where he is working on, “In Need of Rescue,” an autobiographical account of his experiences with adoption, autism and reunion. When he is not writing, Chris is either spending time with his wife and three children at home or with his 2,300 children at Hazelwood West High School, where he teaches journalism.
