A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay Review:
The long-delayed resolution of a French family's mystery electrifies de Rosnay's (Sarah's Key) glimpse at the crushing cost of keeping secrets.Parisian architect Antoine Rey and his sister, Mélanie, celebrate her 40th birthday on the island where they vacationed as children with their mother, until she died there in 1974.
Upon returning, Mélanie is gripped by a shocking repressed memory and loses control of the car.After a brief spell of amnesia, she tells her brother what it was she remembered: their mother had been in love with a woman.As a skeptical Antoine investigates this twist in their mother's past, an upsetting chain of events unfurls: his daughter's best friend drops dead of a heart condition at only 14 years of age; his teenage son is arrested; and he learns that his father is dying of cancer.
Antoine gets support in his quest from a new lover, a Harley-riding mortician who teaches him how respecting death helps one to embrace life.This perceptive portrait of a middle-aged man's delayed coming-of-age rates as a seductive, suspenseful, and trés formidable keeper.
She suffers extensive injuries, and as she heals in the hospital, Antoine obsesses over just what it was that his sister recalled.He is determined to find answers, but where and how?There are few surviving family members, and those remaining resist his unsettling queries.
Meanwhile, distractions abound, as Antoine takes up with the sexy hospital mortician (who wears black and drives a Harley-Davidson, ooh la la).He and his ex-wife must also deal with their badly behaving son, whos recently landed in jail.Internationally best-selling French novelist de Rosnay renders swift, lucid prose and steady suspense (even though one of the novels big secrets is revealed mid-tale).
Expect demand among fans of both literary mystery and high-end romance.Only: 4.05 $ *
