Light Suspense with Deep Dark Secrets

Secret KeeperTHE SECRET KEEPER by Kate Morton is the latest offering from this New York Times Bestselling Author.  While this is the first novel of Morton’s that I have read, her covers have always drawn me in.  I already had one on the shelf and since this book arrived the rest have shown up as well. Must give thanks to Atria Books who provided the book to me last year. Now the trade paperback is available from Washington Square Press part of the Simon & Schuster family.

An illness brings the family together again in rural England to a farmhouse they once all called home.  A slow methodical descent in to a family and its secrets.  I guess I better get resigned to this period back and forth it seems everyone it utilizing this technique. The two periods of time that come together to become THE SECRET KEEPER are 1941 and 2011 England. Further it is divided into four parts with a different character focus for each of them.

Everyone returns to Greenacres farm for the ninetieth birthday of mom, Dorothy.  Even Laurel, the sister that got away, has returned.  Laurel is a successful actress who left this part of England never to return until now is haunted by her memories.  Laurel stumbles upon something while visiting with her mom that has her chasing down the past for some answers.  It will keep you guessing till the end.
