The Safe-Keeper's Secret

The Safe-Keeper's Secret Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Damiana is Safe-Keeper in the small village of Tambleham. Neighbors and strangers alike come one by one, in secret, to tell her things they dare not share with anyone else, knowing that Damiana will keep silent. One late night, a mysterious visitor from the city arrives with an unusual secret for the Safe-Keeper--a newborn baby. Damiana, who is expecting her own child, names the foundling Reed and raises him side by side with her daughter, Fiona. As the years pass and the two children grow into teenagers and come of age, they must come to terms with who they are--and who they may be. Sharon Shinn's many fantasy novels have won her a loyal following. This book, firmly in the tradition of Robin McKinley's bestselling Spindle's End and Shinn's own Summers at Castle Auburn (an ALA Best Book for Young Adults), is thoughtful, warmhearted, and a sheer delight to read.
