on a par with Sarah's Key
enjoyed "A Secret Kept" as much as "Sarah's Key." De Rosnay has a way of drawing you into her story. The characters become part of your life, as you read. Very talented author. Can't wait for her next book, which I understand will be out in October.
Publishers Weekly, 2010-08-30 Together, de Rosnay and Simon Vance guide us through a sister and brother's traumatic search for the real cause of their mother's death some 30 years before. Vance is a reader's reader, and he narrates de Rosnay's novel with nuanced tones, rhythms, cadences, and subtle modulations, intonations and pauses to etch each character indelibly in the reader's memory. He has the rare ability to do convincing women's voices without sounding silly, and his French is very good (though his American accents are slightly overblown).

Publishers Weekly, 2010-07-26 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, Melanie, celebrate her 40th birthday on the island where they vacationed as children with their mother, until she died there in 1974. Upon returning, Melanie 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 tres formidable keeper. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
