Barbara Bradford’s newest book is “Secrets from the Past.” American photojournalist Serena Stone made a name for herself following in her famous father’s footsteps – covering wars.

In her late father’s work she discovers a shocking secret that will propel her back to war-torn Libya – looking for clues that she hopes will piece together the mystery surrounding her parents’ marriage and the part of their life together that she never knew.
