I don't know how to tell you what I did. 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 mistakes 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.

Reviews

"So full of unexpected twists you'll find yourself wanting to finish it in one sitting. Fans of Jodi Picoult's style will love how Diane Chamberlain writes." (Candis) "Diane Chamberlain is the Southern Jodi Picoult." (New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe).

Chamberlain (The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes) unravels a heartbreaking mystery about a midwife whose suicide opens the door to her dark past. Noelle Downie was an unconventional beauty whose calling as a midwife defined her among her friends, Tara and Emerson. Because Noelle's career was one of embracing life, her suicide left her friends largely puzzled. More shocking, though, is an unfinished letter discovered among Noelle's belongings that reveals a secret so horrifying that Tara and Emerson embark on a mission to find the woman the letter is addressed to. As they struggle to reconcile new revelations with the Noelle they thought they knew, Chamberlain's hold on the multiperspective narrative weakens, and the hopping back and forth between characters creates a narrative jumble. Chamberlain does pull it together in time for the wrapup, finally giving readers willing to stick through some choppiness a bittersweet story about regret and hope. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

I absolutely loved this book by Diane Chamberlain. It is written so well, so easy to read and impossible to put down. The people in the story feel real and tangible, without there being too much overly dramatic description. Couldn't wait to know the true identity of the baby girl. Such a sad, touching, entertaining story.

Really enjoyed this book. Unusual format chapter by chapter which made it hard to put down. Just when I thought I might have the answer along came another little twist. Well written, easy to read. Sad but heartwarming at the same time. Highly recommend.
