The Secrets We Kept
“Enthralling… This is the rare page-turner with prose that’s as wily as its plot.” - Vogue
“Prescott crafts a cloak-and-dagger story of passion, espionage, and propaganda.” - The Wall Street Journal
“A gorgeous and romantic feast of a novel anchored by a cast of indelible secretaries.” - The New York Times

All funds raised from The Novel Tea will be dedicated to Darien Library resources, including technology, purchasing new books, and supporting programs and guest speakers.
