I absolutely love Diane Chamberlain's books and this one, of course, did not fail me!!!
I felt so many emotions while reading this book. Tess who breaks off her engagement with the love of her life to marry Henry. Tess who I felt so sorry for and Henry who is hiding something (and all of my guesses were wrong - Ha!!) I only felt contempt. He stayed out all night, was hiding money and never touched his wife. Tess's mother-in-law is a contemptible, meddling old woman still stuck in the ideas of the old south and her sister-in-law dislikes her because Henry was supposed to marry her best friend.
When Henry's secrets did come to light, the story floored me as, of course, I was definitely not expecting that.
A wonderfully great story that I thoroughly enjoyed and was sad to leave.
