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.

The book is very well written and read but the story is harrowing. I only listened to the end to be sure someone got there comeuppance.
I’ve only given it one star so this review is read. I found it a tough read albeit a very well written and described book.
