Product description

Would you read a letter never meant to be opened? Would you want to know secrets never meant to be told? Or should a woman's secrets stay buried? An unfinished letter was hidden amongst Tara and Emerson's best friend's things after her suicide. Noelle was the woman they entrusted to deliver their precious babies into the world, a beloved friend. Her suicide shocked them both. But her legacy could destroy them. For her letter reveals a terrible secret that challenges everything they thought they knew. Taking them on a journey that will irrevocably change their own lives-and the life of a desperate stranger-forever.

A real page turner, I couldn't put it down and was finished it in two days. All the way through I thought I knew what was coming next and at one point thought, 'this plot is going to be so predictable', but I was wrong all the time. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, something completely different happens. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes books in the style of Jodi Picoult as it is similar in it's format.

I gave 4/5 stars
I win it from a giveway i've discovered diane chamberlain books
This story is about 3 best friends noelle who is midwife ; emerson and tara ..after the death of noelle lots of secrets went known and made an eathquake in the tara and emerson life wondering if noelle did trust them for not telling what they are discovering
Emerson is maried to ted and have a daughter named jenny and they live a happy life until some secret been discovered
Tara is a widow from some months ; she lost her husband in a tragic accident and her and her daughter grace have difficulties to communicate and to live without Sam ..
Noelle is rather secret and she explains all her life in the book ..and why she took some decision she did ..she became a midwife because she used to love her mother's job as a midwife .. but she did it in a proper way by doing nursing studies .that's at the university that she met emerson and tara and also Sam ..
And there is Anna who appears in the second part of the book..she is a single mother of haley who has leukeumia ..haley 'father who has just reappeared in their life what to be a great father and regret to have left the family when all went wrong ..they had another daughter lilly who has diseapeared in her early days but they have never stop looking for her ..Anna is working for missing child association

After noelle's death a lot of secrets about her came to be known by the books she has written about her job and with the papers they found in her house ..it was really hard for emerson and tara to see that their other friend lied so much to them .will the 2 of them recovered from those discoveries and understand noelle choices at the time ..
Will tara and grace succeed in having a new life without sam ?
Will anna , bryan and haley will succeed in finding their lost girl and find a donnor for haley ?

As i said the book as been given to me but i really love those stories of several people where the main character speaks in separate chapter so we know all of what they are thinking their hope and wishes and vision of life and their fears
Diane chamberlain did a great book ..but it finished a little too quickly ..one or two chapters could have been added ..by the way it was a book we could hardly stop reading it

I'm a huge Jodi Piccoult fan and this is written in a very similar style from multiple points of view. The story slowly unravels keeping you guessing all the way and I love a good twist at the end. This book will not disappoint

By Emma Harkin 16 Aug 2011 5

This is so far my favourite Diane Chamberlain book! It will appeal to both a younger audience (teenager) as well as an older adult audience. It really was a page turner, and has MANY great twists, some quite shocking and controversial. I didn't want to finish it!
