This is a weekly event that highlights a book we can't wait to be published. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Kate Morton is an author that many have loved. I have meant to read all of her books, but I've actually only read one, The Distant Hours. I enjoyed it very much. I've also heard that Caroline Lee narrates this author's writings, the same person that narrates Big Little Lies and The Husband's Secret, both by Liane Moriarty. I loved both of those and loved the narration. Kate Morton will have a new book published this fall and it is my selection for this week:
by Kate Morton
Publication Date: October 13th
One midsummer’s eve, after a beautiful party drawing hundreds of guests to the estate has ended, the Edevanes discover that their youngest son, Theo, has vanished without a trace. What follows is a tragedy that tears the family apart in ways they never imagined, leaving their estate as empty as their broken hearts.
Nearly sixty years later, having enjoyed a long, successful career as an author, Alice is now eighty years old and living in London. Theo’s case has never been solved, though Alice still harbors a suspicion as to the culprit. Miles away, Sadie Sparrow, a young detective in the London police force, is staying at her grandfather’s house in Cornwall. While out walking one day, she stumbles upon the old estate—now crumbling and covered with vines, clearly abandoned long ago. Her curiosity is sparked, setting off a series of events that will bring her and Alice together and reveal shocking truths about a past long gone...yet more present than ever.
