The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton Book Summary

From the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of The Distant Hours, The Forgotten Garden, and The House at Riverton, a spellbinding novel of family secrets, murder, and enduring love.

During a picnic at her family’s farm in the English countryside, sixteen-year-old Laurel Nicolson witnesses a shocking crime, a crime that challenges everything she knows about her adored mother, Dorothy. Now, fifty years later, Laurel and her sisters are meeting at the farm to celebrate Dorothy’s ninetieth birthday. Realizing that this is her last chance to discover the truth about that long-ago day, Laurel searches for answers that can only be found in Dorothy’s past. Clue by clue, she traces a secret history of three strangers from vastly different worlds thrown together in war-torn London—Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy—whose lives are forever after entwined. A gripping story of deception and passion, The Secret Keeper will keep you enthralled to the last page.

The best yet!I love all of her books but this is by far my favorite!.Score: 5/5

Slow goingAnd a bit repetitive at times. No real surprises. From time to time I wanted to just scream, “ask your mother!” to the main character. The book perpetuates a myth that the old and dying are ridiculously fragile and not too bright individuals who need to be protected from their own history. After a lifetime of dealing with those at the end stages of life I assure you, and the author, that nothing could be further from the truth. The character of the aged mother would have been bursting to tell her story, to paint the mural of her past and the war years. This truth put the entire book into the category where I’m not inclined to recommend it..Score: 3/5
