Hi, Sophie's mother is scared that David might reveal her daughters mutation. She might also know that David's father, Joseph Storm, is the ultra orthodox patriarch of Waknuk.This could be dangerous for Sophie. Here are some quotes I think are appropriate,

"It must be a secret between us" , she repeated, driving it home...It was such a heavy promise that I was quite resolved to keep it completely....

By the way there are probably others on this site that know this book well too.

Glad to help though.
