The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton

The Secret Keeper - Kate Morton

This isn't quite as engaging to me as The Forgotten Garden, but the unexpected twist about Dorothy and Vivien's friendship is really good and had me going back several chapters, looking for clues that I missed.


I wonder why I didn't catch how Vivien initially never speaks to or interacts with Dorothy directly — it's always only Dorothy describing how they are oh so close friends. Turns out Dorothy is delusional and has made up the relationship in her head. A really smart trick, that one.
