THE SECRET KEEPER by Kate Morton, (c) 2012. This little family drama is set in the English countryside, London and Australia. It starts out in the 1960’s. An older actress named Laurel Nicholson is searching for the truth behind a murder she watched her mother commit when she was a 16 year old watching from a tree-house on a hot summer day in 1961. Laurel is an older now, and it’s been 50 years since her mom murdered that strange man. Her mother is now approaching 90 years of age and her 4 daughters are arranging her birthday party to be held in the hospital, but her mother’s time on earth is nearly at an end and Laurel and her only brother Gerry who was a mere 2 years old at the time of the murder are trying to find out the truth of what happened that day in 1961. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more novels by Kate Morton!
