The Midwife's Confession

From Goodreads:
Dear Anna,
What I have to tell you is difficult to write, but I know it will be far more difficult for you to hear, and I'm so sorry-

The unfinished letter is the only clue Tara and Emerson have to the reason behind their close friend Noelle's suicide. Everything they knew about Noelle - her calling as a midwife, her passion for causes, her love for her friends and family - described a woman who embraced life.

Yet there was so much they didn't know.

With the discovery of the letter and its heartbreaking secret, Noelle's friends begin to uncover the truth about this complex woman who touched each of their lives - and the life of a desperate stranger - with love and betrayal, compassion and deceit.

From Me:
I loved this book.
I know that some reviews say that it's overdone (the drama), but it kept me interested and wanting to keep reading to find out what, who, when and HOW.
I thought it a complex mystery with lots of twists.
A book about friendships and how well we know a person and how much we really don't know.
I listened to this on audio and thought the narration was great.
It has a cast of characters---two of my very favorites:  Xe Sands and Cassandra Campbell.
I would recommend this book without any reservations.
4.5 stars!
