it was amazing

This is only the third novel of Diane Chamberlain's that I have read, but I wish I could just dedicate all my time to reading the rest of her novels. (That wouldn't be fair to everyone else though!) I just know that whatever else her name is on just has to be great!

The entire story was really interesting. Both characters were easy to feel sympathetic toward. As the story unfolded, there were a lot of surprises. I only was able to guess one thing, but everything else I didn't see coming at all. I really liked the way the story came together and how the mural played into everything and connected Morgan to Anna's truth.

This novel was really well written and captivating, but that's not a surprise knowing who the author is. I couldn't put it down and now I can't wait for it to be published so that others can share in my reading experience. I already am eagerly awaiting whatever Diane comes up with next!

Movie casting suggestions:
Morgan: Elle Fanning
Oliver: Liam Aiken
Anna: Alexis G. Zall
Jesse: Niles Fitch
Pauline: Bella Thorne
Martin: Sam Heughan
Lisa: Regina King

Stephanie She is one of my all time favorite authors! I highly recommend The Secret Life of Cee Cee Wilkes if you haven't read that one yet.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Lloyd Russell Your timing is perfect. Not only have I also read only 2 of her books (did we read the same ones? did you recommend them to me?). But we are looking for our next audiobook. This will do the trick. Thank you!

This book doesn't publish until early 2020. I probably did recommend the other two I read to you.

Lloyd Russell The Dream Daughter and The Stolen Marriage? I'll keep my eye out for the pub date. Thanks.
