If you're a fan of Jodie Picoult, you'll love Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain, best-selling author of The Midwife's Confession.... North Carolina, 1960. Newlywed Jane Forrester, fresh out of university, is seeking 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.

Gripping and yet moral and informative. Another page turner.
I loved this book. Such a serious topic given insight with a powerful, moving storyline that made me feel excited to return to every time I had the opportunity to continue listening. I have serious worries in my life right now and this book put them in perspective and intense and exciting enough to distract me. Thank you Diane Chamberlain.
