L'esperada nova novel·la de l'autora de El jardí oblidat

1959
En un dia calorós d'estiu, mentre la resta de la família fa un pícnic a la vora del rierol de la seva granja, a Suffolk, una adolescent s'amaga a la caseta de l'arbre de la seva infantesa. Des d'allà, la Laurel fantasieja sobre un noi anomenat Billy, una fugida a Londres i un futur esplèndid que ella espera amb ànsia. Però res és tan senzill, abans que aquella tarda idíl·lica s'acabi, la Laurel serà testimoni d'un crim aterridor que ho canviarà tot.

2011
Convertida ja en una actriu cèlebre, la Laurel viu envoltada de les ombres del seu passat. Els records i el misteri del que va veure aquell dia, l'assetgen de tal manera que torna a la casa familiar per començar a desxifrar cada racó de la seva memòria a la recerca de la veritable història.

Una història de tres desconeguts amb uns orígens molt diferents (Dorothy, Vivien i Jimmy) que coincideixen en el Londres dels anys de la Segona Guerra Mundial, i les vides dels quals quedaran unides de forma funesta i inexorable.

Alternant els anys trenta, els cinquanta i el present, L'aniversari secret és un relat fascinant de misteris i silencis, falsedats i enganys, d'un assassinat i d'un amor indestructible.

Comentaris:
«Un enigmàtic drama familiar en el qual s'exploren els secrets de joventut d'una mare, que ressorgeixen d'una manera impressionant quan la seva filla és testimoni d'un crim inesperat. Kate Morton, una narradora magistral de prosa immaculada, indaga amb destresa en les incògnites eternes de l'amor, la traïció i la reconciliació».
MARÍA DUEÑAS, autora d' El temps entre costures
