Diane Chamberlain has become one of my Go To authors for transatlantic flights, because I know that her books will keep me engrossed for hours. So when I was offered an Advanced Review Copy of The Midwife’s Confession just days ahead of my recent Disney World vacation I jumped at the chance!
In her latest novel Chamberlain explores the lives of two women, Tara and Emerson, and their teenage daughters as they deal with the death of their close friend Noelle. It is only after her death that Tara and Emerson come to realise just how much they didn’t know about Noelle. And as they start to delve into her past they discover that their friend the Midwife carried with her a heat-breaking secret that will have a devastating effect on all of their lives.
Told from the point of view of each of the characters, Chamberlain blends together information from Noelle’s childhood and teenage years, with the present day voices of Tara and Emerson. It’s a classic page-turner and one that you will not want to put down until you discover exactly why Noelle chose to hide her real self from her closest friends.
The Midwife’s Confession has a place on my “5 star to read again” bookshelf, alongside her other novels, and I look forward to revisiting this one.
