JUST FINISHED: The Secret Keeper

Author: Kate Morton

Genre: Historical Mystery

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The Secret Keeper started a little slow for me but began picking up the pace towards the middle of the book. I think one of the issues I was having was a general understanding of why the main character would wait till her mother was on her deathbed to ask hard questions.  I realize she experienced a traumatic event but, personally, I could never wait that long (it would always be fogging up my mind).

Morton did a great job at piecing the puzzle together using three different major timelines: present day, 1960s, and WWII (1940s). The narrative floated seamlessly to each character from era to era. The characters in this novel are very complex; they are never what they initially seem to be on the surface. I really enjoyed that aspect considering people in reality are the same way. There is always more to the story.

This book is enthralled in love and mystery. A fantastic summer read.
