Jimmy visits Laurel and sees a picture of Vivien on the wall. Reuben ends the chase by letting go of his own watch and dropping it to the floor. She spat out a fine shard of fingernail. Eldest daughter, Laurel, hiding in the tree house, sees the encounter and her mother kill the man. Vivien knows about family tragedy too, having lost her own family years before. Like being on a lurching ride at the seaside.

See more. There were a few minor items that I felt were left unresolved or overlooked, but this was so engrossing it really didn't detract from the story. And by genre I guess I mean historical-melodrama-mystery type novel. She, like all the other Meyers family members for generations has been waiting for someone to come to the lighthouse to return some special item as part of a secret legacy left to them by their great-aunt Penelope. The Secret Keepers centers on the adventures of a young year-old boy named Reuben.

One of the problems with the book, however, is that Dorothy is written as almost a caricature, and a terribly unlikeable one at that. If she completed the task before her wristwatch ticked away ten minutes, she would accrue bonus points on the imagined score sheet she carried inside her always. William Light. He lies to his mother about a weekend sleepover trip and heads north. She knew quite certainly that her parents had never felt love, no matter the stories they liked to tell about the way they met.

The Secret Keeper book

A rustic fence hems the house, and a wooden gate separates the tame garden from the meadows on either side, the copse beyond.

This book would make a great movie or miniseries — lots of glamour and conflict with World War II as a backdrop. The author of this book provided free copies of the book and paid a small fee to have their book reviewed by a professional reviewer.

Sirius Black was later believed to have murdered Pettigrew and twelve bystanding Muggles in front of more than fifty eyewitnesses, when really Pettigrew had killed them himself and went into his Animagus form to flee the scene, leaving behind his severed index finger.

They all fought to be his favorite, and they all claimed victory, but Laurel knew his face lit up most for her. It was safe to say that neither had ever known the other sort of love, the sort with fireworks and racing hearts and physical—she blushed—desires.

It is here that he discovers a small box engraved with a name and containing an intriguing watch. Neon, hot-pink neon. She glanced through the tree-house window and saw Barnaby lolloping over the long grass, silky ears flapping like velvet wings.

Ergo, until someone was dispatched to retrieve the knife, Laurel knew she was free. The book is split into three "parts" which could have been categorized as novellas or novels for younger readers each being about pages. It was cruel, she supposed, just to let them keep hunting for her, but with the heat wave and the secret she was nursing, the effort of games—childish games at that—was just too much to muster.

Review of The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton

She could hear the distant whoops and squeals now, the faraway, watery sounds of summer by the stream. Laurel thinks the woman is Dorothy, but in reality, what seems to have happened is that Vivien has assumed Dorothy's identity, and the real Dorothy is long dead.

When I read the Benedict books to my kids, the youngest was 5 and she enjoyed the stories while not catching the nuances.

Eldest daughter, Laurel, hiding in the tree house, sees the encounter and her mother kill the man. One of the characters is an author and the only thing we know about his character is through descriptions of his books. The women are losing their sanity. She helps Reuben to discover that the watch is indeed special and holds a secret--it can turn the owner invisible.If the Secret Keeper dies, anyone to whom he or she has confided the information will become a Secret Keeper.

This could involve many people, any of whom might be more willing to share the secret. Generally speaking, being a Secret Keeper is a dangerous position to occupy.
