The Good Father by Diane Chamberlain

The Good Father by Diane Chamberlain goes on sale, April 24, 2012. This is one book you don't want to miss out on. If you like authors such as Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve you will love, Chamberlain.

The Good Father is narrated by three characters, Travis, Robin and Erin. Each one of them has their own story and they are all connected to young, Bella. Travis is raising 4 year old, Bella on his own and one devastating accident after another leaves him feeling helpless and alone.

He needs money and he needs it fast, so he makes a choice. An, illegal one. Unbeknownst to Erin, Bella is left in his care. When he fails to retrieve Bella, Erin makes a choice that will challenge her and endanger her life and Bella's.

This book has to much more going on. It is very involved and I don't want to give much more away. So, I apologize for being so vague. The energy from this book stays with you long after you've finished it.

It is full of suspense, terror, friendship, innocence, evil, secrets, grief, love and lies. All the things that make up a good book and are true to life. The characters are realistic the writing is superb. I couldn't put down this powerful book and I strongly recommend it.

Grade: A+
