The Secret Keeper - Kate Morton From my blog:And just when I was having my doubts, Kate Morton managed to do what she does best… entrance you.I realistically have no idea where to start this review at, this is such a complex story with so many twists and turns and heart pulls that it is going to seem like I’m talking in a loop.The story flips back and forth between modern day and 1941-ish London during the Blitz. It tells different perspectives from Jimmy, Dorothy, Vivian and Dorothy’s daughter, Laurel. In 1961 Laurel witnessed a dark event, which has long been a family secret and while her mother is on her death bed Laurel finds clues that push her to solve the mystery that took place so long ago.The way Kate Morton can write a story is mind-blowing. At just over half I was ready to give up, I wasn’t feeling the attraction that I did in her other’s, especially The House At Riverton. Then at precisely the exact moment I wanted to push it aside Kate Morton flings a whole plot twist at you and you’re sucked back in again.This review obviously has little to no details about the actual story but if you have read any of Kate Morton’s novel’s in the past you know that any small detail given could ruin her mysterious plot. And this one had a major twist at the end. That’s the strange thing about her stories, as much as I’ve given myself credit for guessing the correct twists, I am never able to do it with her novels.If you’re a fan of Kate Morton, you’ll love it. If the summary sounds interesting, pick it up. You will not be disappointed.
