Necessary Lies

Производитель: "Pan Macmillan"

North Carolina, 1960. Newlywed Jane Forrester, fresh out of university, has sought what most other women have shunned: a career. But life as a social worker is far from what she expected. Out amongst the rural Tobacco fields of Grace County, Jane encounters a world of extreme poverty that is far removed from the middle-class life she has grown up with. But worse is still to come. Working with the Hart family and their fifteen-year-old daughter Ivy, it`s not long before Jane uncovers a shocking secret, and is thrust into a moral dilemma that puts her career on the line, threatens to dissolve her marriage, and ultimately, determines the fate of Ivy and her family forever. Soon Jane is forced to take drastic action, and before long, there is no turning back.

Diane Chamberlain is an American author of adult fiction. Her first novel (began in 1989 but published in 1993), Private Relations, was started while she was waiting in a doctor’s office. Although this is when and where she started the novel, she did not finish it until four years later (1992). She focuses all of her novels around relationships, whether they are between a man and a woman, a parent and their child, siblings, or friends. Her books incorporate a mixture of family drama, suspense, and romance.

Biography

Diane Chamberlain is an award-winning author. Prior to her writing career, she was a psychotherapist in private practice in Virginia, working primarily with adolescents. Diane’s background in psychology and her work in hospitals has given her a keen interest in understanding the way people tick, as well as the background necessary to create real, living, breathing characters. Several years ago, Diane was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which has changed the way she works: she occasionally types using voice recognition software. She feels fortunate that her arthritis is not more severe and that she is able to enjoy everyday activities as well as keep up with a busy schedule.

When not writing, Diane enjoys fixing up her house, playing with her three-legged Bernese Mountain Dog and getting together with her friends and grown stepdaughters.
