Kate Morton is one of my favorite author's. The Secret Keeper is my favorite to date! Secret Keeper is a great title for the book, becaouse there are many secrets kept through out the book. Ms Morton keeps you gueessing throughtout her book. I will be recommending her book to my book loving friends. This book holds your interst until the very end.
I'd purchase another book by Kate Morton. Would never buy another book with this narrator. Never. She almost ruined it for me.
A different narrator.
Narrator made this so difficult to get through. I loved the story so I stuck with it, but it was really tedious. She spoke entirely too slowly through most parts. At some points, it felt like there was a period after each word. Would definitely have liked a different narrator.
I simply adored this novel! The narration is excellent and pleasant to listen to. The story itself is engaging and beautiful. It deals with the secrets we keep and how they permeate our lives and the lives of those around us, whether we realize it or not. This book kept me hanging on the entire time. It is quite long, but I was never bored at all and had trouble putting it down to get my work done. I wanted to know what was happening now, what happened in the past, and what secrets were shaping these relate-able characters. Of the Kate Morton books I've read, this is by FAR my favorite!
Liked maybe the first 2 hours and the last 2 hours. If that. I was thinking to myself, come on, this is so boring, I did not care for any of the characters, I liked the ending with the twist, but it took too long to get there. OMG
It was kind of long but that means you definitely get your money's worth. The story was beautifully told and there was a real twist at the end, which I love! I am looking for more of Kate Morton.

I loved listening to Caroline Lee's accent. It really put the picture of the story in my head.
I am always fascinated with stories of people during the War and how they lived in London at those times. The least interesting to me was that sometimes it seemed to drag on and repeat itself for no apparent reason.
Jimmy--I want to see his photography.
Sadly, this was not my favorite book by Kate Morton. I have normally really loved all of her stories, but I found that a lot of this was unnecessary and repetitive description; I disliked the main character Dolly intensely more and more as the story went on; and I also had figured out the ending long before the modern-time main character Lauren had done so. I was also pretty happy about the ending and wished that the way it had come about had happened sooner.
At times I couldn't wait for the story to be over but at other times it was compelling and interesting.
All the characters were equally portrayed, all equal.
Probably Vivian was my favorite by this artist
I think Kate Morton is talented but she should try to shorten it a little.
There were quite a few twists to the story but it took an awful long time to get to them
I think Jerry, the brother. He was so interesting.
Not laugh or cry, but I did think about it and what the characters were up to when I wasn't listening to it.
Great book that gives you glimpses of the past, and the tale of the unwinding mystery kept me hooked until the end.
Caroline Lee is an excellent narrator and Kate Morton does an great job of transporting the reader to the time and place. I really felt like I was there.
I love Kate Morton's stories. Each one is my favorite.
The story itself was a little slow going, but once you get into it, you can't let go. I don't normally write reviews of books but this one took me by surprise and left me wanting more. I am now hooked on Kate Morton's stories and Caroline Lee is an incredible orator. I can't wait to read another of their books.
I couldn't possibly pick just one character, they were so intertwined that I have to say I loved them all.
I don't want to give the story away. Suffice it to say that when the story unfolded, I was both surprised and delighted at the turn the story took.
I listen to books mostly at night to relax. This book though, kept me wanting to listen to more. I ended up going to bed early to listen to the book to help relax me and put me to sleep and instead, I stayed up late listening to it!
Great Book. Will listen to many more of her books and just love the sound of Caroline Lee's voice. Couldn't have picked a better orator.
