The Secrets She Left Behind is an great story and Chamberlain is a wonderful storyteller.
This book is intriguing, full of suspense and fast paced.
I had no idea there was a book before this one, so it does and can stand alone. That being said, I will be reading the first book, Before the Storm because these characters are so well developed that I am anxious to learn more about them and their stories.
Maggie is a young women who just spend time in prison for causing a fire that took lives and damaged others. She returns to her community on the same day one of her victims mothers goes missing.
The characters have emotional, physical and biological ties to one another and as their stories unravel, you find yourself sinking deeper into their world.
