Secret Keepers

(2009)
A novel by

 
At age seventy-two, Emma Hanley plans to escape small-town Palmetto, South Carolina and travel the globe. But when her fickle husband dies in undignified circumstances, Emma finds herself juggling the needs of her adult children. Her once freespirited daughter Dora tries to forget her wayward past, and is married to a devoutly religious man who controls her weekly spending, even while he can't hold a job. Her son Bobby still lives with her, afflicted with a mental illness that robbed him of his childhood promise.

But when Dora's old flame Jake Cary returns to Palmetto, his gift for gardening spreads unusual flora across the entire town, and teases out the family secret that has divided the Hanleys for more than two decades. Written with the warmth of Lee Smith and the magical touch of Alice Hoffman, Secret Keepers is a beguiling second novel by the acclaimed author of The Garden Angel.
