What I’m Reading: A Keeper

I finished the audio book A Keeper by Graham Norton.  I had told you earlier about my frustrations with my library card being revoked as I wasn’t living in the county anymore.  I was able to get one for the library in the county that uses the same online library service so I’m back to being about to use them again.  This was the first book I put on my waiting list after getting the new card.

The book is a bit of a mystery.  The fastest overview of the book is this: mother dies…a daughter finds a mystery to the identity of her father…daughter goes on a hunt to find her parentage.  Daughter veals a whole story she never knew.  It’s a common premise but it’s one I often enjoy.

Here’s what Amazon had to say:
When Elizabeth Keane returns to Ireland after her mother’s death, she’s focused only on saying good-bye to that dark and dismal part of her life. Her childhood home is packed solid with useless junk, her mother’s presence already fading. But within this mess, she discovers a small stash of letters – and ultimately, the truth.

Forty years earlier, a young woman stumbles from a remote stone house, the night quiet except for the constant wind that encircles her as she hurries deeper into the darkness away from the cliffs and the sea. She has no sense of where she is going, only that she must keep on.

A Keeper confirms Graham Norton’s status as a fresh and evocative literary voice and illustrates his clear-eyed understanding of human nature and its darkest flaws.

Amazon readers give the book 4.6 stars.  I liked the book.  It totally kept my interest.  I’d likely give it 4.4 stars.

You can find the book HERE on Amazon.
