Quick Read because you can't put it down and you stay up way past your bedtime reading it! This book portrays that every decision you make has a lasting impact on your life and others. The ending wasn't really plausible to me as the rest of the book but that doesn't detract from this being a treat to read.

This book completely held my interest from cover to cover. I usually don't take books to work with me, but I did this one. When I finished it, a co-worker borrowed it and read it in two days!

This book is definitely in my top 3 favorite books ever! I read about a book a week and when I read something this good, everything after it is a disappointment. This was fabulous. It was the first time I had read a book by the author and have since read some of her others - none of them unfortunately come close to being this great!

Fantastic suspenseful novel, another Chamberlain masterpiece. I am not a fast reader but I go through Diane's books in record time. I typically finish her books in the wee hours of the night and in two sittings. This book was no exception, I simply could not put it down. The story chronicles the life of CeeCee. When we meet her, CeeCee is an orphaned and insecure teenager trying to make it on her own. She gets mixed up with the wrong guy and the story is filled with kidnapping, death, birth, crime, mystery and a complex web of love and lies emerges the way only Diane can tell it. I can relate to CeeCee in so many ways, her undying love for her family, her desire to overly protect her children and how her rheumatoid arthritis impacts her body, how she tries to hide the pain and stay strong for her loved ones even when the disease flares due to stress.  The story is also set in North Carolina, my home state, and I can just picture the story unfold in a setting that's familiar to me. What does CeeCee get herself into? How will she ever get out of it? Will her family forgive her for her past? I wish I could tell you but I don't want to spoil the journey, I do highly recommend this captivating book.  If you like suspenseful reads or books by Nicholas Sparks or Jodi Picoult, you'll like this book. I think it would make an interesting discussion for a book club, just check out the first question on LitLover's list of book club questions. Nicholas Sparks  and Diane Chamberlain are both NC authors and  I have been enjoying reading stories by NC authors or set in NC.  Diane Chamberlain is often noted as being similar in style to Jodi Picoult. While both Diane and Jodi have a way of capturing my attention, Diane's skill rests in her ability to emotionally connect me to her characters.  I form a bond with them, I agonize with them as they face their most complicated predicaments.  When the book is done, I miss them and wonder what happens next.  That's what makes Diane Chamberlain one of my favorite authors, each book leaves a lasting impression with relatable characters in unforgettable situations.

Such a great read. Makes you think about life's choices and how we are not the same people we were and what might happen to our lives changes based on who we are lucky (or unlucky) enough to meet along the way.

In 1977, 16 year old CeeCee Wilkes made an incredibly bad decision that would change her life and the lives of others forever. She took part in a crime that went horribly wrong. CeeCee changed her identity for nearly 30 years and kept her past a secret. In the end the secret is exposed. This was a good story, although far fetched at times. Our group gave it 3 1/2 stars.

Another great book for Ms. Chamberlain.  Couldn't put it down and hated when I had to.  This is a sit at the edge of your seat and chew your fingernails novel, very suspenseful.  Love the authors story telling ability she has a way of wrapping you into this story and not letting you go until the end.

I really loved this book. It kept me intrigued. While covering a 20+ yr timespan and skipping years between chaptere ,i didnt feel like i was missing anything. I liked how we can see Ceecee change from herself into her new persona and leave ceecee behind.
