Description

"Narrator Susan Bennett offers a moving performance of this multilayered story of two women whose lives are affected by a WPA mural.... Overall, Bennett adds an exciting dimension to a gripping story of racism, madness, murder, and even romance." (AudioFile magazine, Earphones Award winner)

From New York Times best-selling author Diane Chamberlain comes a novel of chilling intrigue, a decades-old disappearance, and one woman’s quest to find the truth....

North Carolina, 2018:

Morgan Christopher's life has been derailed. Taking the fall for a crime she did not commit, her dream of a career in art is put on hold - until a mysterious visitor makes her an offer that will get her released from prison immediately. Her assignment: restore an old post office mural in a sleepy Southern town. Morgan knows nothing about art restoration, but desperate to be free, she accepts. What she finds under the layers of grime is a painting that tells the story of madness, violence, and a conspiracy of small town secrets.

North Carolina, 1940:

Anna Dale, an artist from New Jersey, wins a national contest to paint a mural for the post office in Edenton, North Carolina. Alone in the world and in great need of work, she accepts. But what she doesn't expect is to find herself immersed in a town where prejudices run deep, where people are hiding secrets behind closed doors, and where the price of being different might just end in murder.

What happened to Anna Dale? Are the clues hidden in the decrepit mural? Can Morgan overcome her own demons to discover what exists beneath the layers of lies?

A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press

Praise for Big Lies in a Small Town:

"Chamberlain’s depictions of creative beauty and perseverance across time and in the face of inevitable obstacles will keep readers turning the pages." (Publishers Weekly)

"Chamberlain’s writing is reminiscent of a quilt made up of pieces from different people, places, and times, stitched together into a single, emotional story." (Booklist)

5++++🌟

This book is fantastic! It’s one of those books where All of the details are so vivid you can see everything the author conveying in words. Another review described as depressing but Theres absolutely nothing that left me depressed. I was fully engaged and was happy with the resolution! I finished much too fast. I highly suggest this book ...narrator is spectacular 😉

Oh how I’ve missed you both!!!

Diane, you have done it again! FANTASTIC book with a wonderful flowing dialogue. No stone left unturned and nothing felt rushed. I have said it before and I will say it again, Susan Bennett needs to read ALL of DC’s books. She makes all of the characters come to life without going overboard. You are never wondering who is speaking and you never cringe when the characters change. I will listen to anything this duo puts out. Read/listen to this one.. you won’t be disappointed!

Great book!

This is a wonderful story. I am not going to go into what it's all about because the book description does that just fine. My mind was going in all directions trying to figure out what was going on.
I was not a big fan of Lisa. I was ready for someone to just tell her off.

That ending?? Why a cliffhanger with that part of the story? Will we ever know? Is it a lead in to another book maybe?

Narrator Susan Bennett is as wonderful as usual. I love a narrator who can do both male and female voices and it not even occur to you that they are doing a voice of the opposite sex.

Foy-ya

Did the Obama’s pay for this book? I found 3-4 references to them to be nauseating. Also, if I have to hear the word foyer pronounced FOY-YA one more time.....

The actual story was interesting but I was annoyed by the above.

Disappointed

I wanted to like this book, but couldn’t get past the thinly disguised anti-Southern propaganda and politically correct racial and feminist overtones. I want an honest story, not a revisionist lecture.

The Best

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed all of Diane Chamberlain's books, I can easily say that this my favorite. The narrator, Susan Bennett, is amazing (as always!) and is the perfect voice for this story. You won't be disappointed. Just click "purchase" and you will have yourself a story that you can go back to time and time again, one that you can get lost in and just enjoy. I won't summarize the story line, as Audible does a great job in that arena. All I will say is that the pieces of the story wrap together at the end in a perfect way that only Chamberlain can create.

nice read

Mystery is easy but emotionally compelling listening. The voice work is excellent and feels accurate to the work.

big lies in a small town

one of the best books I've listened to in very, very, long time.. I will be looking to hear more of Diane Chamberlain books and or listen to to any books with the narrator Susan Barrett. I felt like I was there, watching a movie listening to this book. I couldn't stop listening. it was so emotional, the characters in the book were awesome to the end. I will recommend this to others to read. whomever disliked this book didn't listen to it all the way through. or whether this book is fiction or not. these are things everyone has gone through and probably still have to go through maybe not to the extreme they did in that era but prejudism is still out there unfortunately . but the strength and courage that was displayed in this book. I loved!

LOVE LIVE LOVE IT!!

This is one of those books that will be a keeper. The worst part of the book was that it ended. The writing sucks you in and you fall in love with all the characters. I couldn’t put it down. It’s been awhile that I enjoyed a book this much. Now to find my next read? It’s like a hangover

Tolle Geschichte und von Anfang an mitreißend...

Irgendwie ist auch dieses Buch wie alle von Diane Chamberlain und doch wieder so anders.

Extrem gut ineinander verwoben werden parallel 2 Geschichten von 2 Frauen erzählt, die in unterschiedlichen Zeiten leben, ihre individuellen Schwierigkeiten haben und am selben Wandbild arbeiten. Ich war von Anfang an gefesselt von den Geschichten und das blieb auch bis zum Schluss so. Obwohl mir - durch die anderen Bücher, die ich von Diane Chamberlain kenne, klar war, dass sich alles am Ende zusammenfügt fand ich wieder sehr faszinierend, wie die Autorin immer neue Inhalte bearbeitet und so toll darstellt.

Ich kann das Buch nur empfehlen. Leider gibt es ja sehr wenig Bücher von Diane Chamberlain auf Deutsch (schade, ich würde meinen Freundinnen oft gerne diese Weiterempfehlen, um mit ihnen darüber sprechen zu können), aber wer gerne englische Hörbücher hört sollte dieses nicht verpassen.
