Kurzbeschreibung

When Anna, Lizzie Thorne's charismatic sister, is killed in a tragic fall from the roof of her school, her family is devastated. One year on and grief still has a hold on them. Kate, Anna's mother, has retreated from her family and is desperate to find someone to blame for her daughter's death. Her father, Jon, is doing his best to care for his family but the pressure of holding his marriage together is pushing him to breaking point. Amid her parents' turmoil, Lizzie, Anna's younger sister, just wants to leave her sister's ghost in the past and find happiness again. But then a devastating revelation begins to raise questions concerning what really happened the night Anna died. Whilst Kate and Jon grapple with Anna's emerging secrets, Lizzie dives headlong into a passionate, but forbidden, first love affair. As the family battle to regain their footing they realise it's the love they have for each other that has the power to finally heal them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sworn Secret 12. Februar 2014
Von Amy L. Yingling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, a little in to it I was pretty sure this was just going to be a "3 out of 5 stars" read but the more I read the more hooked I got. Jennings has written a raw, bare-bones look at what one girl's death can do to so many, especially those closet to her. Kate, Anna and Lizzie's mom, is drowning with the pain and grief of losing her child, but so focused on what she has lost she loses sight of all that she still has. Kate's grief is god awful, I actually found myself teary eyed. Jennings just did an absolutely wonderful job with this, her first novel! You might want to keep some tissues handy.

What 4 out of 5 means to me: {A great read. Memorable and highly entertaining. Recommended, but for whatever reason, not the all consuming experience that I feel characterizes a five star book. Maybe one or two minor issues.}

5.0 von 5 Sternen Secrets and Lies ... in other words, the story of a family 9. März 2014
Von vox libris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Do not begin reading this book unless you have time to finish it, because you will not want to put it down. At all.

The Thorne family has spent the previous year reeling - sadly not really healing - from the death of oldest daughter Anna, who fell from the roof of the school. Some say she committed suicide, others say it was an accident. Jon Thorne believes his daughter suffered an accident, and younger daughter Lizzie agrees. Kate is convinced something happened to her daughter and is determined to blame everyone, even though she might agree - deep down - that it was a terrible accident.

Anna was the light in the Thorne home, beloved by parents and sister. But Anna, as we come to discover, concealed many secrets about herself, none of them savory, none of them what the family thought they knew about her.

As Kate and Jon attempt to maintain their marriage in the face of their grief, Lizzie finds herself drawn to Haydn, the boy Anna was dating when she died. Her parents may be stuck in neutral, but Lizzie wants to live again.

This is an excruciatingly painful book to read because the Thornes' grief is so crushing. On top of that, Jon must deal with an Alzheimer's riddled father, a distant and disapproving mother, and a rogue brother.

But far more pressing is his family, specifically his wife.

Oh, you will hate Kate. In fact, I found myself saying out loud, "I hate you," more than once while reading. She is all but loathsome. Yes, we understand her grief. Absolutely. But she wears it like a badge of honor, as if determined to out-sad everyone around her. Jon points this out to her at one point, and she dismisses it, much like she dismisses him and Lizzie.

Her youngest daughter's need to connect with someone who understands her drives her to a romance no one approves of, and one that quickly becomes very serious. But Lizzie needs comfort. She needs someone to be strong for her, and if it's Haydn, then she makes no apologies.

The events leading to Anna's death will not surprise you. From about the third page of the book, I knew what one of Anna's secrets was, and I suspected others. But this isn't a mystery. I know the blurb calls it a "domestic thriller," but the "mystery" here is whether or not this family will survive together. Anna's secrets are transparent to us from the start, although what actually happened when she died is shrouded in questions.

Like I said, though, the Thorne family's ability to work their way through their grief is the heart of this novel. Can Kate get out of her own way and see that her husband and daughter need her? Can Jon be strong enough for all of them? Can he stabilize his marriage? Can he help Lizzie?

I loved this book on so many levels, including how complicated Kate was. Jennings treats her characters with respect, and if Anna's secret life was too hidden, then we can forgive the lapse. (You would think that Lizzie would know more than she does, but no.) Kate, Jon, and Lizzie are wonderfully drawn, and their stories feel real and unforced. In fact, my biggest complaint is the cover. What in the world? It's horrid. Witness Impulse, please correct that.

Read this one. Seriously. Read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amanda Jennings new best author 12. April 2014
Von bcoltson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Sworn Secret is in the class of Jodi Picoult's best sellers. Jennings' character description, plot development, and understanding of human frailty distinguishes her as a master fiction writer. It's hard to believe this is her first book. I look forward to reading more from her.
