The narrator had the most pleasing voice, and did such a marvellous job of bringing this amazing story to life. I just wanted to the story to go on and on.
The surprise ending
She brings the characters to life and her clear soothing voice makes every detail important. I find my mind can wander when listening to other stories, but her voice and the story itself kept me listening to every single word
Viviene was the most memorable character, but to say why would spoil the fun for other listeners
This has been one of the most enjoyable books I have listened to in a very long time
This book was more than I expected. So many things that I did not expect the narrator was the perfect fit for the book.
Kept me interested
Good story, it kept me interested from beginning to end. I very much liked that once what I thought was the answer to the "secret" had been answered; the book added more layers to the secret and kept my interest and enjoyment right through to the end.
I enjoyed her ability to give personality to the voices of the characters.
The mystery (or secret)
Dorothy, can't say why or I'll give away the secret
Caroline's accent made me feel like I was right there in England during WWII.
At times I was a little frustrated that I couldn't figure out the secret. I kept thinking this better be good to keep me hanging this long but in the end it was well worth it. The story really needed to play out entirely to understand.
I don't often recommend books because not everyone has the same taste in books, movies etc. This one however I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good book. More and more I'm starting to love Kate Morton and her reader Caroline Lee.
The story is great. It takes a little time to get into, but once it gets going, it's great. The narrator is very good too.
It stayed interesting every step of the way. The pacing was really great, and the way the author skipped forward and backward in time kept things really interesting. I loved the book, I was sad when it was over. And I loved the interesting information about England during WWII, that was great.
When the main character finds out that her mother is the other woman. I didn't see that coming, and it was nice because you come to not really like the original woman.
Very happy I listened!
At first I thought this was just a 'sweet' little story, but Kate Morton just used that to set the stage for a book full of plot twists. I loved this book.
Absolutely. Kate Morton wrote another fantastic book with this one. I love the story!
I liked mostly that this one was about an old woman and her family and family secrets.
She brings the characters to life in a way that wouldn't happen if I had just read it.
I wouldn't rename it.
Can you guess?
I enjoyed Jimmy's character. He seemed so earnest and kind but could be a bad boy if he wanted to.
She brought the characters to life. Each one had their own distinct voice with different dialects and rythyms to their speech. At first it was a bit annoying as I am not British and it took a bit of getting used to but by chapter 2 she had me hooked.
I would not name it as it was an ideal Title. The 'Secret keeper" could have been so many of the people in the story.
I would read this book again. Thanks
