I love everything I have read by Kate Morton. But this might be the best yet. This book was intricately layered and so captivating. I loved the reader, as well and plan to look for other books read by her. Don't miss this one!
This story engrossed and delighted me more than any in a long while. I didn't want to stop listening as I wanted to hear what unfolded next! I guessed one part of the mystery about 3 hours from the end, but was totally surprised by another revelation - I didn't see it coming. Definitely engages the emotions as it illustrates how small personal choices can have huge impacts on others' lives. Very satisfactory.
I did enjoy the book, but having heard several other selections by this author I predicted certain elements of the story and it became boring.
This is one of the best books I've ever read. I loved how the characters drew you in and intertwined together. The best was that I was continually suprised when given answers to all the mysteries. I also really like the narration by Caroline Lee.
Great story or wartime angst and romance..cannot ask for a better written or performed novel. I enjoyed it to the end!
This book is full of surprises and mystery. It's well written and performed. It was a pleasure to listen to. Too often I find books to be uneventful, a slow read or a predictable story. Just as I thought I had The Secret Keeper figured out a new bit of information would come forward to prove me wrong and keep me guessing. Bravo and thank you!
I listened to and enjoyed the Audible version of The Secret Keeper. The story is written in a flashback format that really works. The setting moves between London during WWI and the family home, fifty years later. A family secret is unraveled through the eyes of the oldest daughter, Laurel Nicolson. The Secret Keeper is interesting from a historical perspective and is a well-written mystery. I’m definitely going to look into other books by Kate Morton. The narration by Caroline Lee was excellent. The Secret Keeper is definitely a good listen.
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
Great story about a family's history filled with unexpected secrets. The eldest daughter witnesses a very disturbing event as a child; she revisits it many years later as her elderly mother is dying. The story is told from the mothers view point back in the 1940s and the daughter's research of the situation in modern times.
The characters are enjoyable, the story unfolds in many surprising directions, and its just plan entertaining. I often wanted to keep listening when I arrived at my destination.
I did guess the big surprise at the end but it was not disappointing. I will look for other books by this author.
Like being read to by a soothing master.
Gerald. He played a small, but very strong part.
I'm not sure why I chose this book, but I am so glad I did. Such a good story that sweeps you so far into it that it amazes you to learn that it was 19 hours long! I'm going to check out more of Kate Morton's books!
