Diane Chamberlain, author of Necessary Lies

Set in rural Grace County, North Carolina in a time of state-mandated sterilizations and racial tension, NECESSARY LIES tells the story of two young women, seemingly worlds apart, but both haunted by tragedy. A social worker and a 15-year-old are thrown together and must ask themselves: how can you know what you believe is right, when everyone is telling you it’s wrong?

Diane Chamberlain, author of Necessary Lies

Bestselling author Diane Chamberlain delivers a breakout book about a small southern town 50 years ago, and the darkest --- and most hopeful --- places in the human heart.
 
After losing her parents, 15-year-old Ivy Hart is left to care for her grandmother, older sister and nephew as tenants on a small tobacco farm. As she struggles with her grandmother’s aging, her sister’s mental illness and her own epilepsy, she realizes they might need more than she can give.
