Influenced by the likes of Atonement and Gosford Park, it finds events in the summer of 1924 and the winter of 1999 intertwining in almost unbelievable ways. In the middle of 1920s, a young port takes his life on the eve of a glittering society party. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again after this night. At the end of the 20th century, 98-year-old Grace Bradley, once a housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide and this opens all sorts of old wounds - including a terrible and shocking secret.

    The Secret Keeper is a heartbreaking story of mysteries and secrets that moves between the 1930s, the 1960s and the present day; and The Lake House is an enchanting book about a missing child, an abandoned house and an unsolved mystery...
