Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago, a terrible tragedy shattered the tranquility of the small Pennsylvania Dutch town of Reflection. The residents of the village have never forgiven the one woman they blamed for what happened - Rachel Huber. After the incident, Rachel left the town and cut off all ties there. But when Rachel receives the news that her estranged grandmother, Helen, is ill and needs her care, she returns to Reflection.

On arrival she discovers that the town has not forgotten the past, and, among the hostility and gossip, Rachel is forced to seek out old allies and new passions. Soon she finds an unlikely advocate in her grandmother, who surprises her with her wise counsel and rare strength. Rachel comes to realize that they are both trying to overcome the past, and in doing so they bring private guilt and concealed secrets into the light.

    "How did I ever miss this book!!"

    I have read Diane Chamberlin since the beginning of her career! What an excellent story Reflections is!! Diane is such a crafty story teller telling the story of Rachel who hadn't seen her Grandmother since she was a young teenager & not wanting to impose on her life when she struck by lightening! What truths they both learned about the past years sets them both free!!

    Story
    "If you like lifetime movies..."

    This is the first time that I have felt this way about a chamberlain book but I'm disappointed. The narrative was okay, however the story paced on like a slow Sunday driver, it took on vibe of a lifetime movie or even a soap opera. Certainly not my favorite just to far fetched.

    Story
    "Would. you just do it already...Or not whatever ."

    This was a really good story line and it kept me engaged. The ending wrap up was really good. The side stories where even good. However, the constant conversation between the 2 main characters had me screaming "not again. holy shit." Way too much time was devoted to should we ? no well maybe no. If you can hold on and not be annoyed by these two characters and the constant struggle (which should not have been a struggle) this is a great book.

    Story
    "OKAY!"

    I am a fan of DC; however, in my opinion, the best part of this book was the end. Touching, but corny and predictable. I was disappointed. My review of her others have been good. Just couldn't do it this time. She is a good novelist and I will not judge her work by this one.

    "Not as good as the last of hers I read"

    I loved Pretending to Dance and listened to this right after. Mistake. Didn't hold up. Chamberlain weaves a good plot but this one took much longer for me to get carried away than the last one.

    Story
    "Had to return book. Have listened to books I haven't cared for but this one was one of the worst. Could not continue to read ."

    It was very slow with no redeeming story line that I could tell. Lasted through 9 chapters and couldn't take anymore as there still was no discernible flow.

    "The ending was predictable"

    There were many twists and turns throughout the book. However, by the second half, the story and resulting plot twists became quite predictable. The main character is also a little too naive for the reader to actually love. She gets annoying about a third of the way through.
