    Great preview to Necessary Lies

    Enjoyed this book immensely - a good lead up to Necessary Lies. A topic that needs exposure- will make you ponder about the lives of others.

    Awesome Insight To Necessary Lies!!

    The First Lie is the novella to Necessary Lies and it give you a early glimpse into what happened before Necessary Lies came out. Ivy is a thirteen year old, living with her older sister who is fifteen and pregnant, and their grandmother, living on a tabacco farm as tenants. One night will change everything that Ivy knows and a future that will be filled with secrets. It's 1958 in rural North Carolina, Ivy has sneaked out the house to go play a game in a church with her friend, Henry. When Ivy comes back early in the morning, her sister is about to have the baby and the first lie is about to be told to Ivy about what is gonna happen to her sister. After the baby is born and the lie has been told to Ivy, when Ivy overhears an conversation between her grandmother and a social worker, she realizes that nothing is ever gonna be the same and it sets us up for what happened in Necessary Lies! This may be a very short read, it took me about 30 minutes to read it but it had me wishing that I had Necessary Lies so i can know what happens! As i read this story, I just couldn't believe the lie that was told and you just think about what life was like back then to be able to do something like this and you know this really happened in real life. As with all of Diane's books, you just wish that you had enough money to buy them all to devour them in a couple weeks time! Thank You to Diane Chamberlain for giving people like myself a deeper insight on what is to come in Necessary Lies! This book came from my own personal Library.

    The first lie

    Too short, just get into it & it is over. You want to know what happened to the both of them & William.
