Review

"Through multiple points of view, Chamberlain skillfully explores the painful memories of the tragedy. The story of what really happened unfolds organically and credibly, building to a touching denouement that plumbs the nature of crimes of the heart."

Format: Hardcover
I love stories about sorrid pasts coming back to haunt otherwise good people. "The Secret Life of Ceecee Wilkes" does not disappoint. The characters, especially Ceecee, are expertly crafted. The story is full of twists and turns that keep you intersted. It is easily as enjoyable as "Night" and "My Fractured Life." I give it my highest recommendation.

Delightfully heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. Chamberlain beautifully tells the tale of a sordid past that comes back to haunt CeeCee later in life. The characters are masterfully sculpted. The story, while an easy read, pulls you in and doesn't let you go. This book comes very highly recommended. Its a must read.

Format: Paperback
Another wonderful rich book by Chamberlain. CeeCee is 16 when she gets involved with an older man and his crazy scheme...the consequences are lifelong. Wonderfully told and engaging story by a masterful author. She builds a believable story of how girl could end up doing something out of character and make choices that seem reasonable at the time while trying to salvage her life. Note it is slso for sale as The Lost Daughter (UK title). Under any title, a highly recommended read.

This is my third Diane Chamberlain novel and so far the best although I also love the first two I read. Now I can't wait to read all her books.
This book was so well written and it made me care about the characters and what they were going through. Once I began reading I had a hard time putting it down but when I had to, I looked forward to when I could escape to reading it again. This novel deserves better then five stars.
