    England, 1959. Laurel Nicolson is 16 years old, dreaming alone in her childhood tree house during a family celebration at their home, Green Acres Farm. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime. Fifty years later, Laurel is a successful and well-regarded actress, living in London. She returns to Green Acres for Dorothy’s ninetieth birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by memories and questions she has not thought about for decades.

    What did you like best about The Secret Keeper? What did you like least?

    Story was a bit long....


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Caroline Lee?

    The narrator kept changing her accent - sometimes mid sentence from Australian to semi Brittish... I found it so annoying that I stopped listening to the story for a few days until I could handle listening again. Then I had another break. In the end I read the book on my kindle. I wish I had never wasted my audible credit!
    I would have used Caroline Lennon or someone more professional who can use one accent properly and doesn't sound like a 12 year old girl.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I am never listening to anything by Caroline Lee ever again.
