about this item

Everything has gone wrong for Antoine Rey, a middle-aged divorced father at the center of A SECRET KEPT, when he seeks refuge with his sister at a seaside French town where they used to vacation as children. The visit stirs excitement in unexpected ways when Rey meets a seductive undertaker named Angele, but a new family calamity and surprising secrets unearthed by Rey's sister throw the fledgling courtship into tempest. Tatiana De Rosnay draws on her lifetime crossing borders and languages to develop this English-language novel full of turbulent characters and risqué ******.

Antoine Rey thought he had the perfect surprise for his sister Lanie's birthday: a weekend by the sea at Noirmoutier Island , where the pair spent many happy childhood summers playing on the beach. It had been too long, Antoine thought, since they'd returned to the island; over thirty years, since their mother died and the family holidays ceased. But the island's haunting beauty triggers more than happy memories; it reminds Lanie of something unexpected and deeply disturbing about their last island summer. When, on the drive home to Paris, she finally summons the courage to reveal what she knows to Antoine, her emotions overcome her and she loses control of the car.
