When, on the drive home to Paris, she finally summons the courage to reveal what she knows to Antoine, her emotions overcome her and she loses control of the car.

How did he end up here? And, more importantly, what was the secret that his sister wanted to tell him? A Secret Kept plumbs the depths of complex family relationships and the power of a past secret to change everything in the present.
