The Midwife’s Confession by Diane Chamberlain is one of the best books I’ve read over the summer. On the front cover, it says that it’s “as good as Jodi Picoult or your money back”. That was pretty much my reason for buying the book as I’ve enjoyed nearly all of the Jodi Picoult books I’ve read!
The first few chapters didn’t really grip me as much as some of the Jodi Picoult books have, but once I got into it I just couldn’t put it down. The storyline follows two women as they try to come to terms with the suicide of their friend (who was a midwife, hence the title). They find out that they didn’t know her as well as they thought and there are quite a few unexpected twists.
I’m never sure how much to say in book reviews as I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone who hasn’t read it yet! If you’re looking for a good book, I’d definitely recommend giving this one a go.
