USA Today Bestselling Author

Actress Eden Riley’s decision to make a film about her mother plunges her into a shattering confrontation with her own past, irrevocably altering her life and the lives of those she loves. Her mother, Katherine Swift, was a renowned children’s author who died when Eden was very young. Now Eden, recovering from a divorce and disillusioned with her glamorous life, returns to the childhood home of the mother she barely knew. She moves in with her uncle, archaeologist Kyle Swift and his wife, Louise.

Eden gets more than she bargained for when Kyle gives her the journal her mother had kept from the age of thirteen until her death. Eden is spellbound by the powerfully written, intimate diary that chronicles a life of hardship, madness and tragedy. But her fascination turns to horror when she discovers the shocking truth about her mother’s life.

Eden turns for comfort to Ben Alexander, Kyle’s colleague, not knowing that Ben has a secret of his own that could ruin Eden and her career. Now Eden must make a heartbreaking decision as she struggles to lay the ghosts of the past to rest and come to terms with her own future.

Shifting gracefully between Eden’s world and Katherine’s, Secret Lives seduces with the power of its images and the lyricism of its prose.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Never a dull moment!! Touching portrait of love as well as mental illness. Easy read look forward to more of this author’s stories.

*******

Secret Lives by Diane Chamberlain is an entertaining, highly original story that like all good novels, stays with you long after you’ve finished the last page. Eden and Katherine Riley are two intriguing strong willed women, and their stories compelling.

*******

I absolutely loved this book. It keeps you at the edge of your seat with all its twists and turns. I have recommended this book to anyone who knows the true meaning of loving ones child. As a parent we always sacrifice our needs and desires for the sake of our children, the loves of our lives.

*******

I really enjoyed this book. It’s a good story with many angles and it is well paced and well written. The characters are painted vividly, I found myself being drawn to and sympathizing with them all.

*******

This is one of the few books that I can say was nearly impossible to put down. Almost from the beginning, I was transfixed by the world of Eden and then of Kate. Definitely one of my favorite novels by this author! So glad she made it available as an e-book!

About The Author

I grew up in Plainfield, New Jersey where, at the age of twelve, I wrote several dreadful novellas, read and admired only by my family. When college rolled around, I forgot about writing and received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Social Work from San Diego State University. I was a hospital social worker in San Diego, and later in Washington DC. I also had a private psychotherapy practice working mainly with teenagers. All the while, I was writing on the side. I viewed my writing as a hobby, but it quickly became a passion. I finally decided to take a class in ‘writing the novel.’ I was very shy about showing my work to the instructor, but when I finally did, he loved it! He encouraged me to aim for publication and I decided to go for it. A few years later, my first novel, PRIVATE RELATIONS, was published.

Since then, I have become a USA Today and London Times bestselling author. I’ve written about a book a year- twenty-three at last count. I now live in North Carolina, the beautiful state where many of my books are set and where I’m ten minutes from my grandbabies. I share my life with my soulmate, John, who’s a photographer as well as my muse, and with my two shelties, Keeper and Jet.

Are you wondering what my books are about? One of my readers in Japan had this to say about my work: “You make me believe life is beautiful even if it is full of pain and rage.” Her words touch me deeply. They hang on the wall above my computer and help me remember exactly what it is I’m trying to achieve in my stories. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Diane Chamberlain and ENT appreciate it.
