You may know Mary McGarry Morris from her novel Songs in Ordinary Time, which was an Oprah Book Club selection and a CBS television movie. In her newest novel, The Last Secret, she explores the riveting story of Nora Hammond, a woman blessed with the perfect life: a charming husband, two bright teenage children, a successful career in the family’s newspaper business, and an esteemed role in the charity work of her New England town. But Nora’s comfortable existence threatens to unravel when she learns of her husband’s longtime affair–and when the specter of a sordid incident from her youth returns with terrifying force.
