(55)The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain

I think that Diane Chamberlain is one of the most underrated authors in her genre. Her books are always well written, well plotted, and so engrossing that I am thrilled to read each and every one. The Midwife's Confession is absolutely no different.

After the suicide of their friend, Noelle, Emerson and Tara discover a partially written apology letter. An apology for taking her newborn daughter to replace the newborn daughter she dropped as a direct result from her use of painkillers. As Noelle and Emerson start digging into the life of the friend they thought they knew, they discover shocking secret after shocking secret. Can they put all of the pieces together without tearing apart their own lives?

Over and over again Diane Chamberlain provides us with books that provoke conversation on subjects that are somewhat taboo in polite conversations. She has once again written a book that I think would be a wonderful book club suggestion, it even includes a Readers Guide. If you have yet to read anything by Diane Chamberlain, I encourage you to do so now. Start with The Midwife's Confession! You won't be disappointed!

I have been tangled in the web of words for a very long time. I remember being a child and riding my bike to the local library, only needing help getting home because I had checked out so many books.~~ My love of the written word has grown over the years. I recently left my dream job at Barnes & Noble to marry the man of my dreams. I am writing this blog to share with you the books I have read throughout the years. Please feel free to comment and discuss.

I just have to say, it was my girlfriend's pick for book club this month. I suggested this book to her and after much deliberation she chose it. I am enjoying it so far and suggested it fully on your recommendation :) I'll come back and let you know how it was rated by us girls.
