Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

A Secret KeptI'm still reading A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay. I took a vacation -- from everything, including reading! So my Teaser Tuesday is again from A Secret Kept.

I'm almost finished so I will give the ARC to one lucky random TT fan! Winning the giveaway is a good way for you to review the book before picking it as your choice for your reading group. A Secret Kept is a great book club pick, full of discussion points -- family, secrets, romance, hope, loss.

"I want to call Melanie about all this, and nearly do, but it is getting on for one o'clock in the morning. I lie in bed for a long time, tossing and turning, before sleep finally sinks in.

My father's cancer. My grandmother's upcoming funeral. The tall, blond American.

You better tell me how Clarisse died, right now."

-- p. 238 of ARC of A Secret Kept (September 2010) by Tatiana de Rosnay

I read Sarah's Key this past spring and loved it. I have A Secret Kept in my wish list. I hope Clariisa didn't die because of the tall blond American.


Good teaser! I love the cover, it definitely looks like a book I would pick up in a book store! Reminds me of Suite Francaise a little bit.
