More About the Author

Award-winning author Diane Chamberlain, was born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, and attended Glassboro State University. She also lived for many years in both San Diego and northern Virginia, where she still resides.
Diane received her master's degree in clinical social work from San Diego State University.

Prior to her writing career, she was a medical social worker at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego and Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C. She also was a psychotherapist in private practice in Alexandria, Virginia., working primarily with adolescents. Diane's background in psychology and her work in hospitals has given her a keen interest in understanding the way people tick, as well as the background necessary to create real, living, breathing characters.

Several years ago, Diane was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which has changed the way she works: she occasionally types using voice recognition software. She feels fortunate that her arthritis is not more severe and that she is able to enjoy everyday activities as well as keep up with a busy travel schedule.

When not writing, Diane enjoys fixing up her house, playing with her three-legged Bernese Mountain Dog, Bruin, getting together with her friends and grown stepdaughters, and singing with an interfaith gospel choir.

Diane is the author of the bestselling Midwife's Confession. Her new book Keeper of the Light is out in January 2012

3.0 out of 5 stars Started well but was left disappointed 28 Feb 2011
By GemmyNI
Format:Kindle Edition
This book started off very well however the ending (which became quite obvious halfway through the book) was unrealistic and unfortunately ruined the book for me. I found the relationship between Adam and Rebecca hard to comprehend and found myself skipping parts of the book because of this.

All in all its written well and has a very good beginning and interesting storyline but it was just ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 29 Dec 2010
By HappyT
Format:Paperback
Loved this book about two very different sisters and their relationship. Great story, couldn't put it down. Author constantly compared with Jodi Picoult but I found Diane Chamberlain to be much better. Would recommend this book and I will be trying some of her other books too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Read 22 Dec 2010
By Eve2
Format:Paperback
I read this book in a few days, which is great going for me! Diane makes you really care about the characters and I found myself hoping that there would be a sequel to this story. Once I had finished this I went online to find a list of her books as I have sped through reading 5 of her latest...I recommend her books highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars what happened at the end! 15 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i enjoyed the book, as i do with all Diane Chamberlain books but if i hadn't purchased this book via kindle i would have thought someone had torn out the last couple of pages. i felt that i wanted to know more of what happened to Maya, Adam and Simmee. It just didn't seem to finish well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately did not deliver 27 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have found Diane Chamberlain books both believable and enchanting, unfortunately The Lies We told just did not seem to deliver. I found myself on numerous occasions having to put this book down as I simply lost interest in the characters and story. Overall a very disappointing book with an ending that made me throw the book across the room and sigh!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Treacherous Sisters! 4 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed this book right up to the ending. It upset me so much. Oh the treachery of Rebecca! As for Adam, I found him nauseating from the outset, with his smarmy sucking up to waitresses, yuck! Don't marry him Maya! His emotions are so shallow, with the way he flits from wife to wife for what they can give him, rather than for the person they are themselves.The only truly likeable character is Maya. I won't give away the ending, but it made me so mad. But by all means read it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 3 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
This is my first Diane Chamberlain book. I was attracted to the blurb on the book that said If You Love Jodi Picoult, you will love Diane Chamberlain. I am a huge Jodi fan and I really don't think you should compare the two. Jodi pours a lot of research into her books and from what I've read. research didn't really figure in this book so I am surprised by the comparison.

The book started out really well and I thought to myself, brilliant! What a great find. But as I progressed into the middle, I was skim reading just to get it over with (I hate not finishing a book!). It got really tiresome in the middle and I found myself really bewildered at Adam and Rebecca's relationship. The ending totally spoilt it for me as I don't think Rebecca's actions match how she looked after her sister all her life. It didn't add up for me. On the plus side, I enjoyed Diane's style of writing and found the book (the interesting parts anyway) easy to follow. The characters were good as was the plot but I just feel it could have been so much more.

I will try another of Diane's books but if that falls flat, I just going to stick with Jodi!
