Martin had a secret. It was a secret he promised to keep until he died. As death approached, he met Sarah. The Secret Place is an account of the spiritual journey of two people who knew God's word. But the deep valley they traveled together changed them both forever. Sarah made a promise to Martin to tell his story after he passed away. Martin shared with her the role he played in the political history of the White House. It was veiled and out of sequence as if he were trying to still keep his deep secret and promise. But, in the end, he wanted it known. "You're a smart woman, Sarah. You'll figure it out. Please tell my story." It was much deeper spiritually than it was politically. Sarah kept her promise. In doing so, she realized they both will always dwell in the secret place. Sharon Stoll was a teacher and educational counselor for twenty-five years.
