The story was engaging. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next!
The end was a fantastic surprise!
I loved the whole family!
I was not able to get into the story. I was hung up by the accent of the narrator.
I was expecting a differrent story with more depth.
I loved this story. This is my favorite since Harry Potter! The author was creative and had a twist at the end that was fantastic! The narrators voice was wonderful!
First time listening to Caroline Le.
Very good story; so refreshing to have a story for women that combines history with the current times. British Literature is a favorite of mine.
I enjoy female literature that's wholesome as well.
Yes I would and have recommended this book. It kept me interested and wanting to get back to listening as soon as I could.
I loved the historical setting and the twists and turns the story took. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, everything would change.
The story was absorbing and the characters interesting.
I've no idea what the narrator was doing. Her accent seemed to change continually, sometimes half way through a sentence. She couldn't control it at all. She sounded posh English, West Indian, Irish, bad Cockney, some kind of generic working class, generic rural etc. This wasn't for specific characters but just all over the place.
Thank goodness the story was strong enough to withstand the narrator's strangeness.
The story has so many twists and turns that just when you think you've figured it out, it takes you around another corner. One of the best books I've read in a while. Love the war-time setting, the threads that span across generations and the many relatable themes.
This was such a rich, warm, engrossing story. I ADORED the twists at the end. SUch a satisfying ending to a wonderfully written book.

As an American, I enjoyed this story on several levels. It was good to hear about London during the Blitz, told by characters who I cared about and who were also keeping secrets. I felt like I was there, living through the bombings. At first, jumping back and forth from the past to the present was a little disconcerting, but I got used to it and it made the story more interesting. There were tricks and turns in revealing layers of the secrets until the last page,which pleased me as an avid thriller and suspense reader. Caroline Lee is a wonderful narrator. She is emotional when necessary, and her accent is perfect for me to understand. And thanks to Kate Morton for her words. I have even incorporated some of the British vernacular I have learned from this book into my own speech, such as fringe for bangs. I highly recommend the Secret Keeper.
I loved this story. It was so different from anything I had read before. I loved how the story had bits and pieces of history in it which gave me a different perspective on that time period than I had had before. But the author was able to put a twist in the story that I wasn't expecting that kept me thinking about it long after I was finished with the book.
Caroline Lee's beautiful narration fits perfectly with Kate Morton's slowly developing tale. Lots of twists and turns lead the listener to discover secret longings of characters from different times and generations. Mesmerizing. Hard to put down. I fell in love with the reader and the writer and will be checking out their other titles soon.
Laurel, because I relate to her as a middle-aged daughter doing her best for her dying mother.
Dolly, because she's not as simple as she initially seems and Caroline Lee does a masterful job with all of Dolly's slow reveals.
Yes yes YES -- I couldn't, of course, but boy was it difficult to put down.
