"The Shadow Wife" by Diane Chamberlain


This book was a really fast read.  It was the first I'd read by this author, but I'm definitely going to read more.  "The Shadow Wife" is about Joelle D'Angelo and the relationships taking place in her life.  She has a best friend who suffered an aneurism giving birth and has now realized she is pregnant herself.  Although she has fallen in love with her best friend's husband, she knows he is facing inner turmoil in being with her, so she chooses to keep her pregnancy a secret.  In turn, she seeks the help of a healer, Carlynn Shire, to help her best friend, who is in a home, and not functioning.  However, she really helps all of those involved.

I enjoyed that this book had flashbacks and delved into many different relationships.  Throughout the book you really get to know all of the characters and understand where they were coming from.  One of those books you are actually sad to finish.  I HIGHLY recommend this book and author!
