Genre: Adult Fiction
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Diane Chamberlain, and this book is just one of many examples why. I always worry a little when I pick up a book by a favourite author that the stories will get old or repetitive. This is not the case with this author. She manages to come up with unique and thought provoking story lines each and every time.
Chamberlain is a master at creating such vivid settings that you feel like you are there. I could clearly picture Morrison's Ridge, the loop road and everything else. I could feel every root and stone on the mountain paths. It was as if I was walking beside Molly every step of the way.
The story weaves between Molly's past and present and in each scenario she is dealing with serious and important issues. As an adult she is struggling with the challenges of adoption because she can't have children of her own. In the past we see Molly as a fourteen year old girl who is dealing with the challenges of growing up as well as a father, whom she adores, who is living with a debilitating disease. The story weaves flawlessly between these two stories in order to tell the even bigger story. I should add that this is a style that Chamberlain has perfected and also a style that I adore.
This story deals with a very relevant and thought provoking topic. I don't want to go into detail because there is so much that I don't want to give away. I was able to see where the story was heading but it didn't impact my enjoyment in the least. It is a story that will definitely make you think and even make you cry.
As always I loved every minute of this book. Diane Chamberlain disappoints and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
