Publisher's Summary

Joelle D'Angelo's best friend, Mara, is left with brain damage after she suffers an aneurysm giving birth to her son. Alone and grieving, Joelle turns to the only other person who understands her pain: her colleague - and Mara's husband - Liam. What starts out as comfort between friends gradually becomes something more.

Torn by guilt and the impossibility of her feelings for Liam, Joelle sets out determined to find help for Mara, no matter how unconventional the source. Her search leads her to a mansion in Monterey, California, and into the life of a woman shrouded in mystery. Carlynn Kling Shire is a healer and, according to Joelle's parents, saved Joelle's life when she was an infant. As Joelle is guided down an unfamiliar path by a woman keeping her own shocking secrets, she discovers that while some love is doomed, some love is destined to survive anything.

Wow!

I very rarely find a Chamberlain book that I do not enjoy however, the word of enjoy is a vast understatement for this selection. This book takes you through modern day with reflections of the past by intertwining two very compelling stories. The last few chapters is sure to raise your eyebrows then reach for tissues. Loved!!!

Mixed feelings about this

I expected more out of Diane. Her previous books that I’ve read were much more exciting and emotion driven. This was very blah

THE SHADOW WIFE

This novel was entertaining and a pleasure to listen to. The characters very well developed and the story told very well. A story of love and loss.
In my opinion a story of romance and friendship. Listened using Audible Romance.

not crazy about the narrator

I actually stopped listening to this one after about 5 minutes bc of the narrator s voice and manner of speaking. listened to a different book, came back to this and managed to get past the annoying voice. Very good story, well written and intriguing, not predictable. Good overall.

Story interesting, Narrator was terrible.

Narrator ruined the book for me! Good story but the voices were irritating. Would not buy another book with this narrator

Different

This one was a little different. Some alternate healing involved and a big twist at the end.

Another good book by Diane Chamberlain

I enjoyed the book and the narrator who had a nice American accent :) It's a gripping story about a few women. I really liked it.
