what a tangled web....................,
This review is from: The Midwife's Confession (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
'The Midwife's Confession' is brilliant!! Noelle is the midwife in the story, and Emerson and Tara are her best friends. Or so they thought. As Noelle's story unfolds, it becomes apparent that no one really knows her - not her friends, lovers, colleagues, or anyone. Her life is so entwined with those of Tara and Emerson, in ways that they had no idea of. Tara is married to Sam, and has a daughter, Grace. Emerson is married to Ted, and has a daughter, Jenny. Jenny and Grace are best friends, just like their mothers. Noelle is the midwife who has helped many women in their hour of need, assisting the birth of their babies, encouraging and supporting them. However, it soon becomes apparent that all is not as it seems, and that Noelle is nursing a dark secret that threatens to overwhelm everyone. Basically, this book illustrates that we never really KNOW anyone - we only know the bits that they want to share with us. The truth will ALWAYS come out, bringing devastation and destruction with it. This is such a well written, well plotted book, with totally believable characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would happily recommend it.

Yes, but I bet I could easily guess what happens. It is so nearly given away in this review. Swapped at birth?

I don't think I gve away too much information in my review - the information is readily available on the books' synopsis. I merely gave my opinion.

If you are referring to me, I would just say that I reviewed this book, giving my opinion, and that's it. I did NOT reveal the ending, I did NOT reveal anything, I merely gave my honest opinion. Some of those who commented on my review however, are the ones that you should blame for being spoilers.

I agree and apologies as this was not intended to be directed at yourself but to others who commented on your review (you know who you are!)

No problem. I understand how you feel, as I felt some of the comments were unnecessary. I have no problem with my reviews being criticised, but there are always some who have to go too far. It IS a very good book, well worth a read.
