The Lies We Told
Reviewed by- linda (2010/07/11, 07:15 PM)
This is an emotionally gripping book that is beautifully written and perfectly paced. The setting for quite a bit of the book is North Carolina in the aftermath of a double hurricane. Diane Chamberlain adeptly conveys the chaotic state of makeshift hospitals and the extreme working conditions the doctors and other rescue team members are forced to work in. She pulls you in and presents detailed realistic circumstances, allowing a greater appreciation for the men and women who work with real life organization in disaster areas. Between the lines is a powerful message of compassion for our fellow human being. She also has very complex characters you can relate to and a plot thatís multi-layered with twists and surprises, totally immersing you in the moment; itís hard to put the book down. The underlying theme coursing through the story is one of discovering peace and purpose in life. Like so many others, I did not like the bookís ending, but donít let this deter you from an otherwise beautiful story. In summary, a great light read about family, sisters and helping others. Great for anyone who enjoys a good story with strong emotional pull, suspense and intrigue.Back.
