Diane Chamberlain recommends
The Language of Trees (2010)
Ilie Ruby
"Ilie Ruby's haunting story seems to spring fully formed from the mystical setting she so beautifully describes. The Language of Trees will make you believe that spirits live on, that hands can heal, and that if you open your heart wide enough, the world is full of second chances."
The In-Between Hour (2013)
Barbara Claypole White
"The Unfinished Garden is a touching and accomplished debut."
Incense & Peppermints (2014)
Carole Bellacera
"...heartfelt and real, yet her moving story of love, loss and healing is timeless."
The Last Embrace (2015)
Pam Jenoff
"Warm and heartfelt."
The Second Mrs. Hockaday (2017)
Susan Rivers
"Susan Rivers sets this spellbinding, haunting human drama against the backdrop of the Civil War. Told through exquisitely crafted letters and diary entries, the delicious pacing leads to revelations both intriguing and unnerving. I was sorry to reach the end of this stunning debut."
Follow Me Down (2017)
Sherri Smith
"No one can be trusted as the flawed but sympathetic protagonist struggles to find her missing twin brother. This engrossing page turner will keep you guessing right up to the delicious ending."
The Sisters Chase (2017)
Sarah Healy
"Sarah Healy's The Sisters Chase will stay with me for a long time. It's a heart-rending tale of survival filled with deftly revealed surprises and twists."
Before I Let You Go (2018)
Kelly Rimmer
"One of the best books for discussion that I've read in years."
The Girls At 17 Swann Street (2019)
Yara Zgheib
"Heartbreaking and beautiful . . . a brave book, stark in its realism, yet tempered by its lyrical prose."
The Liar's Child (2019)
Carla Buckley
"Carla Buckley is a sly writer. Just when you think you have things figured out, she flips the story on its head. Deft plotting and psychologically fleshed-out characters make The Liar’s Child a ripping good read!"
Every Now and Then (2020)
Lesley Kagen
"Kagen deftly illustrates her gift for blending the serious and the funny, the light and the dark. As a reader, I feel safe in her hands."
