Today's review is for
The Secret Keeper
Author: Kate Morton
This is the story of Laurel. When Laurel was 16 years old, she witnessed a crime in her driveway. That crime, which Laurel helps cover up, changes the course of their family. Now, 50 years later, as her mother lays dying, Laurel wants to get to the bottom of what happened that day in her driveway. And why. She starts to hunt for answers knowing her time is short. The truth of her mother's past starts to come together, and Laurel can finally put the past to rest.
This was a really good book. It jumps back and forth between the present with Laurel as an adult, and her mother - Dorothy - as a young woman. While Laurel searches for the truth about her mother, the readers are given a look at Dorothy's youth and young adulthood and how that crime came to be.
Definitely worth your time. It is long, but you will be so engrossed in the story that the book will fly by
