In 1994 a woman dressed as a nurse in a hospital’s maternity ward persuaded the father of a newborn baby to give her his daughter. Saying she needs a hearing test; the woman took the little baby, and she wasn’t heard of again.
17 horrible days later, the little baby Abbie was returned home to her parents. It was later revealed that a 22-year-old woman faked her own pregnancy and took Abbie to fix her troubled relationship. This event is what triggered Mr. Robotham to write his own version of the story and thus came The Secrets She Keeps.
