Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Hold Your Breath"

    Fabulous storytelling. I felt like I was holding my breath waiting for the conclusion. There are so many twists and turns that you'll never see what's coming next.

    Story
    "Don't give up too soon!"

    I nearly quit this book before the end of chapter 1. The narrator that reads Noelle's chapters has a really mechanical, automated phone directory vibe and I hated it. I persevered and the other readers are much better. I still cringe when a Noelle chapter comes up...but it is doable. The story is quite good and worth the intermittent subpar narration.

    "Twists and turns keep you coming back for more!"
    Any additional comments?

    The story and characters in this book took hold of me and never let go! The writing, editing, and performances are wonderful. By the time I got to the second half of the book, I couldn't put it down, staying awake until 6 AM to get to the end! This is the second Diane Chamberlain novel I have listened to, and will be listening to many more.

    "loved it"

    I enjoyed the story, the characters, plot and the twist. I got lost in it and listened to the whole story twice. I enjoyed it both times. I recommend this book. it's a bit slow at the beginning but quickly pick up and the chracter voices may throw u off a bit but overall a good story.

    "Good story"

    It was not Diane's very best book, but it was good. It took me awhile to figure out the relationships of all the characters. The ending had an unexpected twist and was the surprise that I have come to enjoy from Diane Chamberlain. I would recommend.

    "Riveting!"

    A twisted trail of secrets and a surprise ending.Very entertaining.
    You must pay close attention or you might miss a clue.

    "Could not stop listening"

    This was my first Diane Chamberlain book and I am adding all the rest of hers to my Wish List or Shopping Cart. This story was so good and had me craving the next chapter from the very start. Each of the 60+ chapters left me wanting to go ahead and listen to the next. Such an awesome story.

    "Good Book"

    This was a very good read. I personally found it very hard to put down. I am going to recommend it to my book club as our next read.

    Story
    "Would be great except for the narrators..."
    Would you try another book from Diane Chamberlain and/or the narrators?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.

    Story
    "Good read.... more predictable at the end."
    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrators were very good.... Enjoyed the different voices to convey various emotional locations of the characters.
