Pequena biografia
Diane Chamberlain is the author of 17 novels published in more than eleven languages. She writes complex stories about relationships between men and women, parents and children, brothers and sisters, and friends. Although the thematic focus of her books often revolves around family, love, compassion and forgiveness, her stories usually feature a combination of suspense, mystery and intrigue.



This book tells the stories of Ellie and Kayla.

Ellie's story starts in 1965 where she is 20 years old and a college student in North Carolina. She decides to join SCOPE, an organization that canvasses neighborhoods to convince black folks to register to vote. She will live with black families while working with SCOPE. Her parents do not want her to do this but she does anyway. She meets a lot of people doing this, especially Win, and they fall in love with each other. However, Win is black and Ellie is white so they cannot act on their feelings.

Kayla's story starts in 2010 when she and her daughter move into a home she designed with her husband. Sadly, her husband passed away before they moved in so Kayla doesn't really want to be in the house. Then, weird things start happening and she begins to wonder if the house is cursed. She meets Ellie, who has moved back home to care for her mom and brother, and they form a casual friendship. After a while, Kayla finds out her dad was Ellie's boyfriend before Ellie joined SCOPE.

There is an underlying mystery to this story which is not solved until the very end. My first book by this author and I will be checking out more of her books in the future.
