The secret keeper's daughter

King, Samantha (Novelist)2021
Holly Mayhew has the perfect family set-up. But when her seven-year-old daughter, Marley, begins to act strangely, refusing to speak and rushing off to hide in her room, she knows something isn't right. Desperate to understand why Marley has become so withdrawn, Holly creates a worry box, where Marley posts her thoughts each day. At first, the messages seem innocent. But when Holly finds a note saying secrets make me sad, she begins to question everyone entrusted with her care. Including her family. Holly's past is shrouded in a mystery of its own, and Marley's notes trigger memories of her own childhood - full of muted conversations and locked doors. To help her daughter, Holly must first confront her fears. But with a whole life built on lies, the secrets threaten everything she thought she knew. Once the truth is out - there's no going back.
