1959 England. Laurel Nicolson is sixteen years old, dreaming alone in her childhood tree house during a family celebration at their home, Green Acres Farm. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.Fifty years later, Laurel is a successful and well-regarded actress, living in London. She returns to Green Acres for Dorothy’s ninetieth birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by memories and questions she has not thought about for decades. She decides to find out the truth about the events of that summer day and lay to rest her own feelings of guilt. One photograph, of her mother and a woman Laurel has never met, called Vivian, is her first clue.The Secret Keeper explores longings and dreams, the lengths some people go to fulfill them, and the strange consequences they sometimes have. It is a story of lovers, friends, dreamers and schemers, play-acting and deception told against a backdrop of events that changed the world.

‘Kate Morton excels in this enthralling novel about desires and divided loyalties’ Good Housekeeping‘An evocative tale of wartime secrets and family loyalty . . . The story unfurls with a beguiling sweetness, but there's a real sting to this tale, too’ Marie Claire Good Book Club choice --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

  • By Cumbrian Carol on 6 December 2012

    I absolutely loved this book - for me it had everything. There were lots of twists and turns and I was kept guessing right until the end. Dorothy, the main character of the story, is interesting and is at time unlikeable - however throughout the story I found myself caring for her and wanting her to be happy. Kate Morton is a new author for me and I ought it as a daily deal on my Kindle impressed I am now off to buy her other books on Kindle and I look forward with great anticipation!!

    This book had me interested from the start and the twists and turns during each of the time zones was gripping. I read the whole book over two days and could not wait to finish it. I recommend this book as i do anything Kate Morton has written.

    Quite in depth at times, yet intriguing with an unexpected ending. A long book which flits back from present to past. The detail at times was a bit padded out but once I got to grips with the characters I couldn't put it down.A bit of a twist toward the end which I hadn't prepared for!It was a book that I just had to find out the truth that Laurel was searching for & meant a few late nights until it was finished!Good read though

    Found this a bit convoluted and didn't enjoy it quite as much as previous books by this author, although it was ok.

    Kept me on my toes, dramatic and entertaining. The more I read the more I wanted to read! Highly recommended.

    I love this book. My friend was talking about it & I couldn't remember the end so it was like reading it anew. All I'll say is I cried happy & sad tears towards the end. It's one of kate Morton's best.

    The Story had me interested from the very first chapter. There were lots of twists in the story line which kept you thinking about the different characters and their part in the story. I really enjoyed reading it during my lunch break at work and found it hard to put down each day. I'm now going to read another Kate Morton book which I will read on my hoiday, can't wait.

    A very good writer keeps you guessing until the end. Have read two books, have got a third to read already.
