I was hooked from the beginning. 'The Secrets We Keep' is an amazing story of resilience, as the reader follows the story of Aimee, Lori, Kerry and Aggie, four women who've faced tragedy in their life, and most of whom carry one secret or another. There was so much to love in this novel. I loved the character of Aggie, the tea-leaf reader, and the exploration of a more spiritual side of life, I was interested to read about Australia's Indigenous people, and the issues they faced in the 1980's in Kalgoorlie, Australia, (probably not much different to elsewhere – I assume) and I loved the reference to different types of relationships, such as the platonic friendship of Aggie and Jack, neighbours, both widowed, who've spent the best part of their lives together, taking care of each other, still living in separate houses, and yet as close as a married couple might be, without the intimacy. I reached the end convinced there was only one possible choice left for Aimee, the one character whose secret isn't dealt with earlier in the book, and was ever so glad when she made that choice. Highly recommended!
