I tripped on this book and loved it!
The Midwife’s Confession by Diane Chamberlain quickly became one of my favorite books of the year. It is the story of two dear friends trying to understand another friend’s suicide. They discover a letter that gives them a hint that there was much more to their friend than they knew.
I don’t often read mysteries and frankly didn’t know this was one when I picked it up. GO READ THIS BOOK- IT TOTALLY ROCKS AND YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN!
The writing is lyrical and I literally was shocked when the truth came out at the end of the book- love that! Some quotes I loved:
“Sometimes it was hard to express how much you loved someone. You said the words, but you could never quite capture the depth of it You could never quite hold someone tightly enough.”
“…one emotion still remained unchecked inside me:fear that I was failing my daughter.”
“Noelle needed ten lives to do all the things she wanted to do.”
“…and I knew I would never have that everhing’s-right-in-my-world feeling again.”
You are going to love this book!
