Abstract:

During a party at the family farm in the English countryside, sixteen-year-old Laurel Nicolson has escaped to her childhood tree house and is dreaming of the future. She spies a stranger coming up the road and sees her mother speak to him. Before the afternoon is over, Laurel will witness a shocking crime that challenges everything she knows about her family and especially her mother, Dorothy. Now, fifty years later, Laurel is a successful and well-regarded actress, living in London. She returns to the family farm for Dorothy's ninetieth birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by questions she has not thought about for decades. From pre-WWII England through the Blitz, to the fifties and beyond, discover the secret history of three strangers from vastly different worlds--Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy--who meet by chance in wartime London and whose lives are forever entwined. "The Secret Keeper" explores longings and dreams, the lengths people go to fulfill them, and the consequences they can have. It is a story of lovers, friends, dreamers, and schemers told--in Morton's signature style--against a backdrop of events that changed the world.

"Ante el grave estado de salud de su madre, Dorothy, los hermanos Nicholson deciden reunirse para celebrar el que posiblemente sea su último cumpleaños. La cercanía de su muerte no solo convocará a los hermanos, sino que hará que ella se vea asaltada por un pasado que su familia desconoce Será Laurel, su hija mayor, quien le preguntará sobre ese pasado, del que Dorothy solo irá revelando algunos nombres y acontecimientos. Investigando, con la ayuda de su hermano Gerry, Laurel irá reuniendo información y descubrirá cuál es el misterio que celosamente ha escondido durante años, comprendiendo así también qué sucedió aquel día de 1961 en que Laurel se ocultaba encima de un árbol de su jardín."--Publisher.
