Kate Morton is the best selling author of four novels: The House at Riverton, The Forgotten Garden, The Secret Keeper, and The Distant Hours. Her work takes the reader through time and her writing is flawless for setting, description, and characterization.
Kate Morton is the eldest of three sisters. She was born in South Australia and moved with her family numerous times before settling, finally, on Tamborine Mountain. There she attended a tiny country school and spent much of her childhood inventing and playing games of make-believe with her sisters.
I love this quote from her website: “WHEN I WAS SMALL, I ALWAYS HID TO READ. I COULDN’T SHAKE THE FEELING THAT BECAUSE READING WAS SO PLEASURABLE, IT MUST SOMEHOW BE ILLICIT.”
