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!!

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.

A great listen!

This book was a joy to listen to - loved every moment and although there were few surprises I would highly recommend it.

I love Chamberlain, but this was awful!

Spoiler alert: Gram gets struck by lightning, estranged Granddaughter rushed to her aid after leaving years ago to spend the entire book chasing a married, reverend whom she was best friends with growing up. Throw in the menodite community fighting the English over land, oh and don’t forget to add a creepy woman in the woods living on the land that really belongs to gran and Rachel being shunned by the community due to school bombing at the hands of her ex-husband/ former Vietnam Vet suffering from PTSD and you have a book that is slow, doesn’t do justice to any of the themes presented, and is as scattered as this review reads.

Meh..

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE Diane Chamberlain’s books but this one just didn’t do anything for me. It wasn’t terrible but it by far wasn’t great either. Just kind of blah.. :(

Adultery is not romantic

I am a fan of Diane chamberlain books but this one is awful. Everyone is an adulterer in this book and hat makes you feel no sympathy with the characters plight.

One of the main characters is a meninknight minister who thinks he is do

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.

Yuck!

Spoiler Alert!

My first review and I have been listening to books for 5 years. I was very disappointed, some of my favorite books have been by Diane Chamberlain. I didn't finish it once I realized what Michael's decision was...he seemed to think that God just wants him to be happy and to be happy he needs to leave his wife and son...definitely not a love story and the mystery was very far-fetched.
