4.8/5.0 Wrap yourself up in a family’s secrets.
The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
I lovely book which takes you through the history of a family through the eyes of two different generations. A lovely read if for me a little long for the story but still it was atmospheric and enjoyable, it will keep you guessing to the end of the book. There was one small point that didn’t make sense to me but it was tiny and I don’t want to put it here as it would be a spoiler. On the whole, this was an incredibly enjoyable read and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
The Blurb –
The Secret Keeper, is a spellbinding story of mysteries and secrets, murder and enduring love, moving between the 1930s, the 1960s and the present.

But before the idyllic afternoon is over, Laurel will have witnessed a shocking crime that changes everything.
2011: Now a much-loved actress, Laurel finds herself overwhelmed by shades of the past. Haunted by memories, and the mystery of what she saw that day, she returns to her family home and begins to piece together a secret history. A tale of three strangers from vastly different worlds – Dorothy, Vivien and Jimmy – who are brought together by chance in wartime London and whose lives become fiercely and fatefully entwined.
