The First Lie: A short story
If you're a fan of Jodi Picoult, you'll love Diane Chamberlain's The First Lie, an original eBook short story companion to Necessary Lies.
It's 1958 in rural North Carolina, where thirteen-year-old Ivy Hart lives with her grandmother and sister on a tobacco farm. As tenant farmers, Ivy and her family don't have much freedom, though she and her best friend, Henry, often sneak away in search of adventure. But everything changes when Ivy's teenage sister gives birth, refusing to reveal the identity of the baby's father. Soon Ivy finds herself unravelling a dark web of family secrets and trying to make sense of her ever-evolving life in the segregated South.
