    Six years earlier, Matty had come to Village as a scrappy and devious little boy. Back then, he liked to call himself "the Fiercest of the Fierce." But since that time, Matty has grown almost into a man under the care of Seer, a blind man whose special sight had earned him the name. Now Matty hopes that he will soon be given his true name, and he hopes it will be Messenger. But strange changes are taking place in Village.

    What made the experience of listening to Messenger the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was so moving, his gentle voice able to tell the story from many different perspectives.. The third book in this series did not disappoint. It was nice to hear about Jonas and Gabriel. Also, of Kira and Matty and how they grew.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What a beautiful story. Every character has a gift and we get to hear about how they use the gifts for the good of humanity... Also, what you give up in order to acquire material things..


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Matty uses his gift to heal the community...

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret Keeper to be better than the print version?

    This book keeps you on the edge of your seat. A beautiful story told from different characters point of views and different points in time. As the plot begins to come together, you'll find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat. This might be Kate Morton's best...
