I finished another Kate Morton book this week. Loved it!

Another great read.  Based on her formula of book writing we go between 1940s, 1960s and 2011.

Laurel`s 90 year old mother Dorothy Nicolson is nearing the end of her life and the children come home to be close.  Laurel comes from London to rural England back to her childhood home of Greenacres.  This is where she witnessed shocking violence when she was a teenager.  She has kept the secret but now she wants to find out who the stranger was who came up the lane that fateful day.

Realizing that this is her last chance to discover the truth about that long-ago day, Laurel searches for answers that can only be found in Dorothy’s past. Clue by clue, she traces a secret history of three strangers from vastly different worlds thrown together in war-torn London—Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy—whose lives are forever after entwined. A gripping story of deception and passion, The Secret Keeper will keep you enthralled to the last page.   There is a twist at the very end.
I captured this Canada Goose playing coy the other day.

She was trying very hard to not to let me know she was paying attention but as you can see her eye was clearly on me.

I love the way the dry cattails in the foreground support her detached look.

It is so nice to see the big birds back.  The pelicans should be back soon as well. Good times walking and taking pictures.

I found pussy willows in all stages at the wetlands.  Some were grey and fluffy as they emerge from their capsules.  Then they start to show some yellow pollen.  Then they are in full bloom with these wonderful bright pink red ends.

  1. Sylvia - yes, Kate Morton is a reliable read. I have added this one to the list. Love your pussy willow photos, especially with the background that you chose for the collage. The perfect amount of contrast and still within the natural palette of colors. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, and I hope you have a blessed Holy Week!

  2. I love books by this author and haven't read this one yet. You did a really good review! And I love those pussywillows!


Thanks for visiting. I love to read your comments.
