Dear Anna, What I have to tell you is difficult to write, but I know it will be far more difficult for you to hear, and I'm so sorry.
The unfinished letter is the only clue Tara and Emerson have to the reason behind their close friend Noelle's suicide. Everything they knew about Noelle - her calling as a midwife, her passion for causes, her love for her friends and family - described a woman who embraced life. Yet there was so much they didn't know.
With the discovery of the letter and its heartbreaking secret, Noelle's friends begin to uncover the truth about this complex woman who touched each of their lives - and the life of a desperate stranger - with love and betrayal, compassion and deceit.

and the assumptions built into relationships that allow you to think you know the people in your life.This book tells a mysterious tale that is spun out gently while the reader is drawn into the lives of the characters. Their stories are complex and intertwined. They became real people, and I cared about what happened next.
There are many characters and plots throughout the book and it also moves around in time. Despite that, it reads easily and I did not get lost. This book rises above "Summer beach" reading (although I would totally listen to it there). I hope others enjoy the listen as much as I did.
I enjoyed this story, but wanted (and needed) more from the ending, Characters were well developed and well-connected into the story.
The narrator for Noelle had the worst lilt to her voice so every sentence ended in the same tone- very annoying. Everyone else was ok.
The narrators were very good.... Enjoyed the different voices to convey various emotional locations of the characters.
Everytime I thought I had the plot in hand, a new and surprising detail made it's appearance. This book had me pertetually wondering: What will the next surprise be?
interesting, confusing, suprising
the ending, don't want to give away
Grace and her mother at the end
This book was a good read, a little long, but i think because of many intricate twists and turns with each character. I felt myself getting confused as to whose baby was whose and that was a distraction. Overall, I did enjoy the book-sort of a mystery too.
The narration was painful to listen to.
The voice - and not a smooth read.
It seemed like an interesting story, I'll probably read it, but listening to it was not an option for me.
