The Secret Keeper's intricately woven plot is fascinating! Morton is especially gifted with character development and beautiful details. Her storytelling is absolutely captivating, and the picturesque settings described are not easily forgotten. This story includes love & mystery and the inclusion of multiple time frames (WWII & present). Morton's work is an excellent choice for anyone in search of a no-fail, GREAT book!!
I truly enjoyed this audio book. It was in my library for a while before I decided to give it a listen, and once it was started, I fell in love with the characters and development of the story. I felt the narration was superb. I loved how the story was reveled and only had a slight inkling of what I thought was the key to the "secret" at the very end. And then, there was that sweet touch of surprise and sadness at the end that made it all worth while and made perfect sense.
This was such an enjoyable book to listen to, not only because the story was engaging and wonderfully written, but the narrator did such an incredible job. Highly, highly recommend this audio book!
The multi-layered, fully realized world that Ms.Morton created, gave endlessly and unpredictably. It is beautifully written, showing depth of understanding, great empathy and heart.
The turn of events that I would never have imagined.
Too many to write here.
things are never as they seem
Don't hesitate to read this. It does have one part, in the beginning, that dragged for me ~ Dolly's relationship with her family ~ but get through that and you're back on the boat that sails smoothly into an epic landscape. My favorite book by Ms.Morton so far.
This book had me interested in all the characters and timelines. Sometimes this style of writing has me favoring one timeline or characters over the other. Not this book. The transition between characters storylines was perfection.
This may be my favorite Kate Morton book of all. Did not see the twist coming. Then looking back I should have. Very good writing. I loved characters then hated them then loved
