Editorial Reviews

Mary Alice Monroe
Henry's writing is as lush and magical as the Lowcountry she loves.
Dorothea Benton Frank
A triumph!
Topsail Magazine
Storytelling is a gift, and Patti has the gift.
Rockdale Citizen
There is a new voice rising out of the South and it belongs to Patti Callahan Henry.
Charleston City Paper
Writes with a lyrical touch.
Southern Lady
Enfolds us in a story that stays with us long after we've turned the last page.
Publishers Weekly
Two years after Annabelle Murphy's husband Knox dies in a plane crash, the wreckage is found-and with him is the body of a woman. In the disappointing latest South Carolina Lowcountry saga from Henry (following Between the Tides), the firm ground under Annabelle's feet suddenly dissolves with questions as to who the woman was, and what her relationship to Knox might have been. Annabelle's teenaged daughter, Keeley, struggles with feelings of anger and betrayal; her college-aged son Jake mans up as best he can. Her close male friend, Shawn, may turn out to be something else entirely. And into all their lives comes Sofie Milstead, a sad young woman who studies dolphins, who avoids most relationships and who knew who the mysterious woman was. Sofie doesn't explain her connection to Knox until late in the story, and a sense of foreboding pervades the entire read. When all is finally explained, the payoff is meager, and a downer.

    The Art of Writing a Good Book

    Patti Callahan Henry did not disappoint me with this book. I wasn't too sure if this would be an excellent read when I read the back of the book in Barnes & Noble, but in the first chapter, the author's writing style completely drew me in. This is a touching story perfect for book clubs or for someone looking to read a book with a realistic story and a writing style that makes you feel as if you're in the pages yourself. Patti Callahan proves one thing to me here: she possesses the art of writing a good book. I highly reccommend this book to anyone who loves Patti Callahan Henry and is looking for a page-turner with unraveling secrets in every chapter.

    If you like Ms. Henri's other books, you will like this one.

    The Art of Keeping Secrets has the same mood as all of Patti C. Henri's books but the characters are loveable and the story has it's own characteristics. Although, it was predictable and a bit lacking.

    Art of Keeping Secrets

    Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It reminded me a little of Adriana Trigiani's books (I've read them all). Since the previous reviewer doesn't think this is her best work, I can't wait to buy another one!

    Loved it

    What's not to love? Great character development and a story that entertained and was at one point quite suspenseful. I liked it because it was different than most plots.

    Excellent quick read

    This was my first Patty Callahan Henry book, it was chosen by our book club. As I wasnt to keen on the choice because it seemed like a typical topic, when I started reading it I found I couldnt put it down. I was captured by the well written and quite different story line that I'd originally expected. It was definately a quick page turner that had me quite interested to the last page. Will definately read more of this authirs writing.
