Book Review | The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain

I don't want to give too much away about this book, but I couldn't not feature it on my blog because of how amazing it was. It really was one of those books that you couldn't work out what was going to happen, I actually found myself gasping and crying at how shocking the story line was - a brilliant read!

It tells the story of three best friends (Tara, Emerson and Noelle) , and what happens when one of them commits suicide. There are lots of secrets revealed along the way, and its a truly heartbreaking but heartwarming story at the same time. I couldn't put it down...


"I don't know how to tell you what I did.

Would you read a letter never meant to be opened? Woudl you want to know secrets never meant to be told? Or should a woman's mistakes stay buried?

An unfinished letter was hidden amongst Tara and Emerson's best friend's things after her suicide. Noelle was the woman they entrusted to deliver their precious babies into the world, a beloved friend. Her suicide shocked them both. But her legacy could destroy them.

For her letter reveals a terrible secret that challenges everything they thought they knew. Taking them on a journey that will irrevocably change their own lives - and the life of a desperate stranger - forever."

This book really was brilliant, I don't think I was even expecting it to be as good as it was, even though I'd been desperate to read it for ages! Thinking about the plot twists now makes me want to reread it all over again.

This was the first Diane Chamberlain book I have ever read, but I'll definitely be heading to the bookshop to look for more.
