The Secrets We Keep is another debut novel by an Australian author and I must say that I find it very exciting to feature debut authors because regardless of the hype they are still very much an unknown quantity.
Shirley Patton has penned a tale of political corruption, family betrayal and dark pasts.
Aimee is a social worker who moves to Kalgoorlie for a fresh start. Her colleagues seem friendly and one of her cases draws her in.
There is a dark secret in Aimee’s past and it soon becomes apparent that her secret connects her with the town and its residents.
I look forward to sinking my teeth into this one and at just on 300 pages I think it will be a pretty quick read, when I finally get to it.
Aimee builds her life in the local community and is left questioning earlier decisions because revealing a secret that isn’t yours alone can have unforeseen fallout.
