Two sisters are very close . . . or are they? One of them dies . . . or does she? Her husband grieves with the surviving sister, and they grow very, very close. Exactly how close? And what the heck is really going on?
This was the seedling of an idea that prompted the storyline for The Lies We Told. From that seedling grew my two physician sisters–wild, thrill-seeking Rebecca and cautious Maya. When they were teenagers, their parents were murdered and that incident–and the lies each of them told about what happened–will always haunt them. Now, while working as part of a medical aide team after a hurricane destroys part of Wilmington, North Carolina, Maya is in a helicopter crash. Rebecca and Maya’s husband, Adam, believe she is dead, but Maya is actually trapped in an area with a few people who, for some reason, seem intent on keeping her there.
Things are not what they seem. That is always my favorite element in telling a story. I want to surprise you as well as entertain you, and I hope The Lies We Told will do both.
Beginning June 1st and running for two weeks, I’ll have an online booksigning on my website. You’ll be able to request up to four special “The Lies We Told” bookplates, autographed by me and personalized for you and your friends (You like to give books as gifts–I know you do!) and the postage will be on me. I’ll let you know when the form will be available on my site.
FreshFiction.com said about The Lies We Told:
“The Lies We Told is a tender story of two sisters’ path toward rediscovering their friendship for each other. . . Chamberlain beautifully bares their dreams and their souls in The Lies We Told.”
I love that! The writing of The Lies We Told followed a rocky path and I’ll share bits and pieces of the journey over the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, if you’d like to read an excerpt, it’s available here. Enjoy!
