Dear Anna,

What I have to tell you is difficult to write, but I know it will be far more difficult for you to hear, and I'm so sorry…
The unfinished letter is the only clue Tara and Emerson have to the reason behind their close friend Noelle's suicide. Everything they knew about Noelle—her calling as a midwife, her passion for causes, her love for her friends and family—described a woman who embraced life.
Yet there was so much they didn't know.
With the discovery of the letter and its heartbreaking secret, Noelle's friends begin to uncover the truth about this complex woman who touched each of their lives—and the life of a desperate stranger—with love and betrayal, compassion and deceit.
My Thoughts:
This was a wonderful book. If you haven't read it yet, you are in for a wonderful surprise. Ms. Chamberlain is quite the storyteller. The book is a page turner from page one.. It is about three best friends. I am not revealing anything more... There are so many different emotions going on in this book, love, deceit, so many mixed emotions, right up to the end of the story, with a surprise ending, I had no idea where the ending was going until it hit me between the eyes. I loved the way it kept me wanting to keep reading. All I can say is I LOVED THIS BOOK. If you haven't read it yet, run to the nearest bookstore, library or e-reader and enjoy the bumpy ride ahead for a day or two. 

I loved this book so I am giving it  5*****

I bought this book, it is now in my personal library
