This book was SO GOOD!! Another great read by this author! I loved it!Takes place on the Outer Banks so that in itself makes for a great setting; characters are well developed and there are enough surprises/twists to keep you reading until the wee hours!
This was definitely a fun book to read. I loved all the twist and turns this one took. It was all about who had given birth to a baby 22 years earlier and trying to find out who had left her on the beach to die. Fortunately for the baby, she was found and adopted and when she is an adult, wanting to find out who her birth mother is. This book was awesome because you don't figure it out until the very end. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, the author would change it and go in a complete different way. I love books like this. Two thumbs up for me!!!!!
This is one I couldnt put down ! I love her books !!! If you have never read one of her then get one !! A baby is found on the beach and then the story goes on years later to find out who had the baby.
Another excellent read from Diane Chamberlain. She never disappoints and is never predictable. The descpriptions of the Outer Banks are vivid and beautiful, I can't wait to visit one day. Loved all the characters and the story had plenty of twists and turns to keep me reading late into the night. Highly recommend.
I think I have found my new favorite southern female author! This was a great story that kept me guessing, I cant wait to read more by Chamberlain. I know she has been compared to Jodi Picoult, but while I often cant make myself finish some of Picoults books, this book kept me up late reading!
Another one I could not put down. Ms Chamberlain doesn't dissapoint. Characters become real & you get so into their lives. Also a mystery, who's the mother of the baby found on a beach. Won't say anymore or it spoils it. Get this one; really good I give it a four & plan on reading more by this author.
"Early one morning, on the beach beside her North Carolina home, eleven year old Daria receives an unbelievable gift from the sea-an abandoned newborn baby. When the infant's identity cannot be uncovered, she is adopted by Daria's loving family. But her silent secrets continue to haunt Daria.
Now twenty years later, Shelly has grown into an unusual, ethereal woman whom Daria continues to protect. But when Rory Taylor, a friend from Daria's past and now a television producer, returns to do a story on the mystery of Shelly's birth, something precarious shifts in the small town of Kill Devil Hills.
The more questions Rory asks, the more unsettled the tiny community becomes, as dark sins and closely guarded secrets begin to surface. Piece by piece, the mystery of summer's child is being exposed, a mystery that no one involved-not Shelly, Daria, her family, not even Rory-is prepared to solve."
