Just finished reading this – thoroughly enjoyable, a love story and a bit of mystery never go amiss! It’s my second read by author Diane Chamberlain. She’s Jodi-Picoult-esque in style for me, so if you like Picoult’s books, you’ll definitely like this. I see she has also written a number of other titles, might have to try another soon because I like how they have more substance in terms of plot than the average boy-meets-girl novel, but at the same time they are not too heavy (I read intermittently and like to be able to pick up and put down without losing track of the story!) “Laura Brandon’s promise to her dying father was simple: to visit an elderly woman she’d never heard him speak of before. A woman who remembers nothing – except the distant past. Visiting Sarah Tolley seemed a small enough sacrifice to make. But Laura’s promise results in another death – her husband’s. And after their five-year-old daughter, Emma, witnesses her father’s suicide, Emma refuses to talk about it…or to talk at all. Frantic and guilt-ridden, Laura contacts the only person who may be able to help, a man she’s met only once before – a man who doesn’t know he’s Emma’s real father. Guided only by a child’s silence and an old woman’s fading memories, the two unravel a tale of love and despair, bravery and unspeakable evil. This is a tale that links them all. It is a tale shrouded in silence…”
