I don't really know how to describe this book. It wasn't the worst book I've ever read but after the amazing telling of Sarah's Key, I was disappointed. The characters were offbeat to the point of being rather unrelatable and the big secret wasn't really much of one. Ending was so unsatisfying... I wish the characters had more depth. ( )

This was a wonderful book - a trifle melodramatic at times. I can't say the ending was satisfying but the book was... ( )

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this book but it slowly pulled me into the lives of the characters. I know the title is A Secret Kept but I feel like it is more about the relationship between the members of the Rey family. It's also about Antoine and his relationship between Angele a mortician and also with his children. I really enjoyed this as an audio book. It's beautifully written. ( )

This book did not enthrall me like "Sarah's Key". It was a good read and a good story. I like the author's writting style and her characters.
