An intricately plotted, spellbinding new novel of heart-stopping suspense and uncovered secrets.

I’m reluctant with alternating narratives but Kate Morton masters the art of the past and the present, never disappointing in alternative narratives with one story dominating the other, both equal in appeal and presence.

The differing storylines were tied together perfectly, especially Sadie’s final outcome. Morton possesses skill in tying plots together with precision execution.

The thorough flashbacks prior to the story kicking into full gear laid the ground work for what was to come, also providing a glimpse into the characters and their back story.

On the seat of your pants suspense, the dark secrets slowly surfacing and the many cliffhangers will keep you enthralled. The plot is nothing less than clever, each bread crumb leaves you turning the pages with angst to discover the final outcome. I absolutely adored the ending, fabulous.

Morton fans will find themselves lost in this beautifully written, creative story of love, loss, loyalty, promises and deep secrets. Morton magically creates absorbing mysteries shrouded in dark secrets with alternating narratives like no other, her twists will entertain until the very end.




Kate Morton grew up in the mountains of south-east Queensland and lives now with her husband and young sons in Brisbane. She has degrees in dramatic art and English literature, specializing in nineteenth-century tragedy and contemporary Gothic novels.

Kate Morton has sold over 7.5 million copies in 26 languages, across 38 countries. Her novels include The House at Riverton, The Forgotten Garden, The Distant Hours, and The Secret Keeper.
