Publisher's Summary

Maya and Rebecca Ward are both accomplished physicians, but that's where the sisters' similarities end. As teenagers, they witnessed their parents' murder, but it was Rebecca who saved Maya from becoming another of the gunman's victims. The tragedy left Maya cautious and timid, settling for a sedate medical practice with her husband, Adam, while Rebecca became the risk taker.
After a devastating hurricane hits the coast of North Carolina, Rebecca and Adam urge Maya to join them in the relief effort. To please her husband, Maya finally agrees. She loses herself in the care and transport of victims, but when her helicopter crashes into raging floodwaters, there appears to be no survivors.
Forced to accept that Maya is gone, Rebecca and Adam turn to one another - first for comfort, then in passion - unaware that, miles from civilization, Maya is injured and trapped with strangers she's not certain she can trust.

Very good, if not great.

What did you love best about The Lies We Told?

Dianc Chamberlain always gives pleasure as well as food for thought. This was a very good book, but not her best by a long shot. Another reviewer found the ending lacking, but I thought it was perfect. Just sit back and enjoy.

Good but not my favorite by chamberlain

Definitely another good chamberlain book but not her best. I absolutely didn't like the ending. It probably could have ended any other way but the way it had and I would have felt better. Like the sisters in this novel, I am the youngest of just two girls. Our parents had no other children so we were close growing up. There is absolutely no way this ending would be okay with anyone in my family and I'm sorry but if a reader out there says otherwise I would have to question the family dynamic going on there. That just simply is not okay I don't care what circumstances surround them.
