The Secret Keeper: A Novel by Kate Morton

Description

From the New York Occasions and internationally bestselling creator of The Far-off Hours, The Forgotten Backyard, and The House at Riverton, a spellbinding new novel filled with thriller, thievery, homicide, and enduring love.

All through a summer time birthday celebration at the household farm within the English countryside, sixteen-12 months-old Laurel Nicolson has escaped to her childhood tree home and is fortunately dreaming of the long run. She spies a stranger arising the long highway to the farm and watches as her mom speaks to him. Prior to the afternoon is over, Laurel will witness a stunning crime. A crime that challenges the whole lot she is aware of about her household and especially her mother, Dorothy—her vivacious, loving, just about excellent mom.

Now, fifty years later, Laurel is a successful and smartly-recognised actress residing in London. The family is gathering at Greenacres farm for Dorothy’s ninetieth birthday. Realizing that this may be her last likelihood, Laurel searches for answers to the questions that still haunt her from that long-ago day, answers that may most effective be present in Dorothy’s previous.

Dorothy’s story takes the reader from pre–WWII England during the blitz, to the ’60s and past. It’s the secret history of three strangers from vastly completely different worlds—Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy—who meet by accident in wartime London and whose lives are forever entwined. The Secret Keeper explores longings and desires and the sudden consequences they sometimes convey. It is an unforgettable story of enthusiasts and friends, deception and passion that’s told—in Morton’s signature type—towards a backdrop of occasions that modified the world.
