A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay

A Secret Kept was written by the same author that wrote the book club favorite Sarah’s Key. That didn’t interest me as much as the title of this one. Who doesn’t love a book about family secrets? Set in Paris, this is the story of a man going through middle-age crisis who discovers a long-kept secret about his mother, who passed away when he was a child. The secret itself takes a long time to come out, but the book is so beautifully written that by the time it’s revealed, you don’t even care.
