Read in June, 2012

I didn't realize when I bought this discounted book for my Kindle that it was originally published in the early 90's. But it explains the lack of cellphones and I was suspicious of the "word processor" mentioned throughout the book. Small detail in a big story.
The secrets in this book are haunting and yet beautiful too. Eden returns to her childhood home to create a screenplay about her mother. She knows her mother was troubled, she knew her for such a short time that research is required...and Edens discovers more than she could have ever imagined. She drops all the Hollywood pretense and finds that reality makes her very vulnerable.
I've read some of Diane Chamberlain's books in the past and have to say, they are never a quick easy read. I did read this book quickly (for me) because it captured me to a degree that I couldn't put it down. Not an easy read but well worth your time and effort.

Denise Was it published under a different name. Was surprised my library didn't have this one.
