Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it is a weekly feature where bloggers share what they are excited to read next.
Here is my pick this week:
Here is a summary from Goodreads:
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.
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. 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.
This book comes out October 9th, 2012. I have loved all Morton's other books so I can't wait to read this one. Happy Reading!
