5.0 out of 5 stars A strong follow up story, 25 Sept. 2010
By 
This review is from: Secrets She Left Behind (Paperback)
Secrets She Left Behind is the follow up to Diane Chamberlain's previous novel Before The Storm. This book can easily be read as a stand alone book however, I think in order to get a thorough understanding of all the charcters and view points from all sides then Before The Storm should be read first.

Each chapter of this book is either narrated by Sara, her son Keith, Maggie or her brother Andy therefore there are several different stories running throughout the book although all four characters are drawn together in one way or another.

Similarly to Before The Storm there are some flashbacks throughout this book, this time however they are explained from Sara's point of view instead of Laurel's (as it was in Before The Storm). Therefore, this allows the reader to fully understand the story from both sides and helps to explain what really happened.

After reading Before The Storm I did wonder where else Diane Chamberlain could get the characters to go but she has proven in this book that there was plenty more to write about with each character and she also introduces a couple of new characters which add a fresh look to this story.

Overall, this is a great follow up and although it is a lenghy read (over 500 pages) there is mystery and intrigue throughout which helped to keep me turning the pages until the very end.
