The Secret Keeper

One of my favorite things to do when my husband is traveling is to get lost in a good book! I can stay up way too late reading and not feel bad about it at all!  I recently read The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton.  If you're looking for a book that will keep you hooked, you will love this one! 


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.

I don't want to give anything away, but this book is absolutely worth reading!  I loved the characters and how the story wasn't obvious.  I thought I had the story figured out, but I was surprised by the ending!  And as a huge bonus, it was super clean!  
Reading these days, is a total treat for me!  As a mom, wife, and maker, my spare time is limited but reading is my favorite way to spend my time when I do take a break from real life and making flowers!  I hope you'll check the book out!  If you do, let us know what you think!
