The Secret Keeper

The Secret Keeper
Kate Morton

Laural is sixteen when she witnesses a crime at her home that changes her life forever. It's a secret that she has kept until now. But now in her 60s and watching her mother slowly slipping away, she feels the burning need to fit all of the pieces of the puzzle together. Alternating between now and 50 years ago the story of the secret is told and everything Laural thought she knew about her mother is changed.

I had previously read The House at Riverton and enjoyed it. So I was excited to get this book for review. The secret is revealed in the very beginning of the book, or so I thought. Because the story keeps jumping back and forth between the now and then it can become a bit bogged down in the middle. But keep reading. The story not only picks up, but you'll find out even more secrets until the very last secret is revealed at the end. The storyline is intriguing, but the history that is intermingled with the story is engaging and captivating as well. Definitely a book worth reading.

I received this book free of charge from Newman Communications in exchange for my honest review.
