The Secret Keeper
by Kate Morton
1959 England. Laurel Nicolson is sixteen 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 ninetieth birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by memories and questions she has not thought about for decades.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
Share what you read last week and what you are currently reading.
Last week I listened to The Little Stranger for the RIP Readalong at The Estella Society and Cascade by Maryanne O’Hara, historical fiction set in 1935 Massachusetts.
I also read The Last Policeman, some excellent apocalyptic fiction. An asteroid is on a crash course with the earth. Does anyone care about investigating a murder if the world is ending in a few months? I enjoyed this one! Review coming soon for all three.
Reading/Listening This Week:
This week I’m planning on reading Innocent Victims, psychological suspense novellas for RIP VII and The Dog Stars.
I’m also listening to Roots of the Olive Tree.
Last week I posted a giveaway of American Dervish by Ayad Akhtar.
The giveaway is open for entry until Sunday, September 23rd for readers with a US or Canadian mailing address. (Sorry International folks, the publisher is mailing the books.) I have three trade paperbacks and one audiobook to give away.
