The Park Street Secrets

by Yvonne Van Lankveld


GENRE:  Contemporary Fiction



A historic government office and police station in Niagara Falls, Ontario is redeveloped into seven condominiums. Some new residents have ties to its cultural heritage, while others bring secrets to keep there.

Siblings Lily and Rose must cohabit for one year or lose their inheritance, despite their animosity toward each other. Gracie Sheehan is determined to make a fresh start after many unexpected events force her to question her values and life goals. Young lovers move down the hall from a self-serving customs broker who always gets whom and what he wants.

Mix these unique characters with a medley of others, add a building manager with secrets of his own, and discover how Park Street becomes a chaotic blend of love, betrayal and the need for human connection.



“Mason, take me home.”

The neurologist glanced at Mason and then at Winnie.

“Mrs. Firestone, you and everyone else in this room want you to go home. We all have your best interests at heart.”

“That’s bullshit,” Winnie mumbled under her breath, expecting no one to hear, then realizing everyone did.

Mason shifted uncomfortably in his seat. He had never heard Winnie swear. The others exchanged varied expressions of amusement across the table as the neurologist spoke again.

“Mrs. Firestone, if you decline, we may need to keep you in hospital longer to do some other evaluations. I’m really hoping that if you complete these activities today, we can discharge you sooner rather than later. What would you prefer?”

Winnie extended a trembling hand to Mason, the dread of failure clearly written on her face.

“I’ve known Mrs. Firestone for many years,” he said, taking her hand, “and more recently, I became her legal representative. Our goal, whatever it takes, is to place Winnie safely back in her own home where she can continue to enjoy a quiet life.”

“And that’s exactly our hope too,” the neurologist stated. After introductions, and a brief explanation of the process, he said, “Do you understand what we are offering you?”

Winnie looked at Mason and rolled her eyes as she nodded.

“Well then, you better get on with it,” she said, glaring at the neurologist.



Yvonne Van Lankveld's love of words began in childhood. As a nurse, her writing skills earned her acclaim in many clinical settings, however she never lost her desire to become an author.

The Park Street Secrets is her second novel, which she wrote during the pandemic. Her first book, The Road to Alright was originally published in 2019. She is working on her third fiction novel, Follow Polly's Lane. Yvonne lives in Ridgeville, Ontario with her husband.

  2. Happy Friday! Thank you for sharing your bio and book details, The Park Street Secrets sounds like an excellent read and I am looking forward to it. Do you have any specific reading or writing planned for the weekend?

    1. The only writing I did this weekend was taking notes from Linwood Barclay's presentation about his new novel, and some Christmas cards, but in January, I'll be writing up a storm!
