Diane Chamberlain: The midwife's confession

'I don't know how to tell you what I did.' The unfinished letter is the only clue Tara and Emerson have to the reason behind Noelle's suicide. Everything they knew about Noelle - her calling as a midwife, her passion for causes, her love for her family - described a woman who embraced life. But they didn't know everything. Because the unaddressed letter reveals a terrible secret...and a legacy of guilt that changes everything they thought they knew about the woman who delivered their children. A legacy that will irrevocably change their own lives - and the life of a desperate stranger - forever.

After a somewhat slow start the storyline became more and more fascinating and interesting. The characters have been well developed and it was easy to empathise with everybody involved. Once I got to page 200 I could not stop reading and despite feeling tiredness I finished the story late into the night...
