Publisher's Summary

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 90th birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by memories and questions she has not thought about for decades. She decides to find out the truth about the events of that summer day and lay to rest her own feelings of guilt. One photograph, of her mother and a woman Laurel has never met, called Vivian, is her first clue.
The Secret Keeper explores longings and dreams, the lengths some people go to fulfill them, and the strange consequences they sometimes have. It is a story of lovers, friends, dreamers and schemers, play-acting and, deception told against a backdrop of events that changed the world.

The Narrator ruined it for me!

I have read several Kate Morton books and have always really enjoyed them. However, the narrator on this book has completely ruined it for me. At first her attempt at accents was mildly annoying in trying to guess what the dialect was suppose to be, but by chapter two the constant change in various unrecognisable accents was totally offputting to the story. Sorry Kate, I'm sure your story is as good as always, but I just cannot listen to any more. Audible, please, please, make sure your narrator either just reads the story in their own voice, or make sure they can pull off a reasonable accent they are attempting!.

What a shame

Good story I love Kate Morton, however Caroline Lee ruined my enjoyment with her strange accents if she had just read the book it would of been fine. I cant believe that this version has been published by audible her accents are almost comical in places and not very consistent.What a shame as it is a good story.
