The Midwife's Confession
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

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