A Secret KeptBook - 2010
"Antoine Rey thought he had the perfect surprise for his sister Mâelaine's birthday: a weekend by the sea where they spent happy childhood summers. It had been over thirty years, since their mother died and the family holidays ceased. But the trip reminds Mâelaine of something deeply disturbing about their last island summer. Suddenly, the past comes swinging back at both siblings, burdened with a dark truth about their mother, Clarisse. Trapped in the wake of a shocking family secret shrouded by taboo, Antoine must confront his past and his troubled relationships with his own children" --Cover, p. 4.
