The Secret We re Keeping is an emotional and heart breaking tale of forbidden love This book is about a relationship that develops between a teacher and one of his fifteen year old pupils Before reading it, I was a little cautious about it There are so many potential things that could have made me dislike this book, but almost instantly I fell in love with this story I loved the style it was written in, the way it moved back and forth between the 1990s and present day, filling the reader in on what happened back then, and how that impacted on the two main characters over the years Which leads me onto those characters What great characters, very likeable and well developed It was impossible not to get emotionally involved in their lives, both past and present.I couldn t put this book down, didn t want it to end, and oh my goodness, my heart and mind still haven t quite worked out what to do with the ending Such an emotional roller coaster that even brought tears to my eyes on than one occasion.If you enjoy character driven novels about controversial romance, with some suspense and a lot of emotion, then this is probably the book for you.I would like to thank the publisher, Penguin UK Michael Joseph for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I am torn Don t get me wrong, this is a very well written book but the story of Matthew a teacher having an affair with his fifteen year old student left me feeling morally and emotionally drained.This is a book that would not have been published if written by a man methinks. This debut novel is a very emotional and thought provoking read As I read this book I was constantly reminding myself that Jess was a child, aged 15, yet she made all the moves and was the strongest character in the book Was it true love , infatuation or just a 25 year old teacher taking advantage of a vulnerable girl Jess had a mother who was too heavily dependent upon drugs and drink to pay her any attention and Matthew was the one person she spoke to who listened to her.Matthew Langley is a 25 year old teacher at a girls school in Norfolk, Jessica is a 15 year old pupil Their love affair led to scandal, arrest and imprisonment 17 years later Matthew is back in Norfolk He is now known as Will, has a daughter Charlotte and a girlfriend Natalie Jess is a self employed caterer and still living in Norfolk with an on off boyfriend Zak, who wants her to move to London with him where he works as an A and E consultant.Matthew and Jess become reacquainted when she steps out in front of his car and he knocks her over Old memories of their love affair are rekindled and gradually devastating secrets, acts of betrayal and heartache are revealed This is a well written book full of empathy and reminds us all how tricky love is and how teenage daughters need loads of love and support in this arena I can see this book being filmed as it is in the same genre as Gone Girl and the book would make a perfect gift for your daughters. Ending is very disappointing. |Download Book ☪ This Secret We're Keeping ⚖ A Pupil And A Teacher Is It Ever Right To Break The Rules Jessica Hart Has Never Forgotten Matthew Landley After All, He Was Her First Love When She Was Fifteen Years Old But He Was Also Her School Maths Teacher, And Their Forbidden Affair Ended In Scandal With His Arrest And Imprisonment Now, Seventeen Years Later, Matthew Returns To Norfolk, With A New Identity And A Long Term Girlfriend And A Young Daughter, Who Know Nothing Of What Happened Before Yet When He Runs Into Jessica, Neither Of Them Can Ignore The Emotional Ties That Bind Them Together With So Many Secrets To Keep Hidden, How Long Can Jessica And Matthew Avoid The Dark Mistakes Of Their Past Imploding In The Present From Debut Author Rebecca Done, This Secret We Re Keeping Is A Powerful And Provocative Novel About The Ties Which Can Keep Us Together Or Tear Us Apart The blurb and premise for this book really attracted me to it The idea of a student teacher situation decades on was an interesting concept There s a thread of tragedy sliced with a little hope running right through this book but you dread an impending car crash situation.Jess was the seducer at 15 years old Matthew was the weak, misguided and prosecuted maths teacher Decades have passed, names have been changed and secrets are the name of the game Clearly the context of this book makes for a tense but also a discomforting read I felt my moral and ethical compass piqued and questioned by the black, white and grey of the issues narrated.When all was finished I had mixed feelings about the characters Jess, years later is weak and people seem to walk over her, which was a departure from the Jess in adolescence Clearly, she was marked by the events of the past Matthew Will was flaky, unrestrained in his emotions and willing to hurt those around him I felt angry towards the older Will repeatedly.Overall, this book was an interesting read and a unique idea There were periods where it felt a little slow but I was able to move ahead to steadily paced sections This was a solid debut and I would read from this author.The publisher provided a copy of this book in return for an honest review.Reviewed for JoIsaLoveBooks Blog. I liked it Unfortunately I thought it would have a better ending, I m not saying in anyway that it wasn t a good ending because it most certainly was, I just wasn t expecting that ending to happen, I had envisioned a completely different happier one I also knew what the other secret that was in the book before it was even mentioned, I mean come on, it wasn t that difficult Of course Rebecca had to put that as a plot twist or at least a side one if anything in to the story, that didn t surprise me in the least, still the other revealed about the person who called the police on them in the first place I was most definitely not expecting, I thought it was only the one person it never even occurred to me that it was someone else Overall, It was a great book and I enjoyed it I look forward to reading of her books in the future D I finally finished this book, two stars because the characters were good and so were the final chapters Except for the last chapter though, what even was that I m so angry with this ending, honestly This book was so long winded, everything was elaborately described which was somewhat boring I just needed this book to end Like really end, not how it ended Also the characters were quite good but I liked Jess and Will Matthew the best when they were together Thus, two stars and I m glad I finished this book.
