The new novel from the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Distant Hours is a spellbinding mix of mystery, thievery, murder, and enduring love.During a party at the family farm in the English countryside, sixteen-year-old Laurel Nicolson has escaped to her childhood tree house and is dreaming of the future. She spies a stranger coming up the road and sees her mother speak to him. Before the afternoon is over, Laurel will witness a shocking crime that challenges everything she knows about her family and especially her mother, Dorothy.      Now, fifty years later, Laurel is a successful and well-regarded actress, living in London. She returns to the family farm for Dorothy’s ninetieth birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by questions she has not thought about for decades. From pre-WWII England through the Blitz, to the fifties and beyond, discover the secret history of three strangers from vastly different worlds—Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy—who meet by chance in wartime London and whose lives are forever entwined.     The Secret Keeper explores longings and dreams, the lengths people go to fulfill them, and the consequences they can have. It is a story of lovers, friends, dreamers, and schemers told—in Morton’s signature style—against a backdrop of events that changed the world.

5.0 Talk about your twist ending!!
Whoever wrote the blurb on the back of The Secret Keeper, was not exaggerating. You will most definitely be surprised by all the twists and turns of this mystery. It is so multilayered that I often wondered how all of the different narrative threads converged...then about 30 pages from the end I sta...

AudiobookThis book could have been more enjoyable shorter. There were some scenes like one character trying to talk to her brother where she left messages on her cell phone and left messages at his work. Why do I need to know how many times she called and failed to talk to her brother? That was seve...

4.5 Kate Morton - "Strażnik tajemnic"
Zadziwiające jest, jak wiele chłamu ma doskonałą promocję. W końcu już z przyzwyczajenia olewamy blurby, zapowiedzi i wydumane, egzaltowane teksty reklamowe, wedle których każda kolejna powieść jest wybitną, brawurową, wiadomo, że też kultową, a każdy kolejny pisarz to nowy Puzo, Faulkner czy Bułhak...
