Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 21, 2011 – Chamberlain (The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes) unravels a heartbreaking mystery about a midwife whose suicide opens the door to her dark past. Noelle Downie was an unconventional beauty whose calling as a midwife defined her among her friends, Tara and Emerson. Because Noelle's career was one of embracing life, her suicide left her friends largely puzzled. More shocking, though, is an unfinished letter discovered among Noelle's belongings that reveals a secret so horrifying that Tara and Emerson embark on a mission to find the woman the letter is addressed to. As they struggle to reconcile new revelations with the Noelle they thought they knew, Chamberlain's hold on the multiperspective narrative weakens, and the hopping back and forth between characters creates a narrative jumble. Chamberlain does pull it together in time for the wrapup, finally giving readers willing to stick through some choppiness a bittersweet story about regret and hope.

Customer Reviews

Riveting story

Terrific pacing.. Great characters...thoughtful. This one will make you mull over your family bonds for a long time.

Good Read

I enjoyed this book a greatly. I couldn't put it down once I got into the book. The first few chapters, to me, were a little dry. A few chapters in, the book picked up its pace and became addictive. I couldn't put the book down and my desire to know what happened next was consistent. I give the book four stars because of the slight predicability.

Intriguing but unmemorable

The storyline is intriguing and very interesting. Certainly, it makes you think about how well you can really know people and are we truly there for the people we love. I found the friendship betrayal detracted from the story and I did not find Noelle very personal nor likable which made it difficult for me to love the book. All in all, predictable and not one of those books that make you think about it after it’s over.
