The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
If you are looking for an epic novel that spans more than fifty years, then Kate Morton's The Secret Keeper is a must read--it moves between 1941 London during the Blitz, the 1960's, and present day. This book is part historical fiction, part mystery. In present day, Laurel remembers a tragic family event from the 1960's and is driven to solve the meaning of this before her aging mother dies. As she begins to examine her family's past, she uncovers secrets from war-torn London and begins to wonder who her mother really is. Morton keeps your interest on every page with well developed characters and a rapidly moving plot. I liked it so much, that I will definitely read Morton's other books.
