"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Secret Keeper


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Secret Keeper
By Kate Morton
Publication Date: October 16

From Amazon:

During a party at the family farm in the English countryside, 16-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, 50 years later, Laurel is a successful and well-regarded actress, living in London. She returns to the family farm for Dorothy’s 90th birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by questions she has not thought about for decades. From pre-WWII England through the Blitz, to the 50s 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.

Oh, I love this! I was sold as soon as it said English countryside, but I love the idea that it spans multiple decades. And what a pretty cover.

Thanks for turning me onto it, and Happy Wednesday!

I think this is one of your best WOWs yet. The mystery of the crime witnessed and all these lives intersecting is just too much to ignore.

Take a peek at My Wow when you can.
