    1. Oh my god, this book is exactly what I needed!The drama and the twists are TOO good.Unpredictable; kept me at the edge of my seat!Never thought I'd love and enjoy this so much, such a satisfying book. ❤Keeper of the Light is a romantic fiction, but it’s embedded with lots of lessons that we can apply to work and life. It’s a story about love, loss, betrayal, forgiveness and starting over. As I was reading this book my heart ached so bad.The story plot is wonderfully paced and the character [...]

    2. What a horrible book. I am sorry. A very weird love triangle, oops How do you say that but then with 5 people? ;) fiveangle? I have read some of this author's books and I did enjoy some but this I had to stop reading.The begin is quite interesting but then when you get to know the other characters (and they are all very unlikable!) it gets weird. Real weird and stupid.Apparently everybody and their dogs loves this one red head woman. Men hate their wives because they compare them to her. Women t [...]

    3. Another Diane Chamberlain novel I totally enjoyed even though it was just a little outdated (originally published in 1992). It did not, however, detract from the story as the 500 pages just flew by. Certainly look forward to reading more of DC's books!

    4. This is the first book in a trilogy (other novels are Kiss River and Her Mother's Shadow). Diane's books are always full of complex interesting characters, good plots, family relationships and drama, suspense and many secrets to be revealed in the end.

    5. This was not my favorite of her books but it was still a good book. A friend who recently read this said it was too long and I couldn't agree more. Overall though Diane Chamberlain writes damn good stories that keep you engaged and wanting more at every turn of the page.

    6. Time Taken To Read - 1 dayBlurb From As your husband grieves his mistress, You find yourself falling for the family she left behind. But she hid secrets that will destroy himor you. Do you tell? I m going to die as punishment for all the bad things I ve done You are on duty in the emergency room when, despite your desperate effort, the victim of a gunshot wound loses her life.

    7. I cannot even attempt to properly describe this book to you, because it is way better than even the description on the back cover of the book! Really, the description of this book is the bare minimum of what it is really about. Yes that is the main idea, but there is so much more to it! Slowly throughout the novel, connections between people, events, and places are being made. As I read on, I was realizing more and more the weaving of the characters and their lives. The only way I can describe t [...]

    8. Еще одна отличная история от пера Дианы Чемберлен. До чего не люблю в последнее время любовные треугольники и тому подобные любовные фигуры, но тут просто стою и хлопаю Чемберлен стоя. Браво! Автор такую фигурину закрутила, что только успевай переводить дыхание и переворач [...]

    9. Chamberlain spins an absorbing tale of romantic obsession and betrayal. Beautiful artist Annie O'Neill is known as St. Anne on North Carolina's Outer Banks for her selfless devotion to any cause that comes down the pike--she's even donated bone marrow to a stranger in need. Her murder leaves her husband, Alec, shattered. Also broken are Olivia Simon, the emergency room physician who tried to save her, and the good doctor's husband, Paul, who idolized the victim. To recapture Paul's love, Olivia [...]

    10. This review was originally posted on [Between My Lines]I'm trying a new book review format. I just want to give you a short message on how Keeper of the Light by Diane Chamberlain made me feel. And what better way than sending a postcard.Quick Thoughts on Keeper of the Light by Diane Chamberlain Not many authors could have handled the complicated relationships without turning it to a farce. But in Diane Chamberlain's capable hands, it becomes an emotional and heartfelt story.  But be warned the [...]

    11. 3.0 out of 5 stars -- Soap opera at the Outer Banks!The one thing that can ruin an otherwise good book for me is the ending of it. I don't know why I am so picky, but that is the big thing for me. I want the characters to be people I can admire and whose actions follow that quality. I was really looking forward to this book as I have come to expect great stories and in-depth relationship development with a Diane Chamberlain book. As this was one of her earlier novels (1992), I can see how she ha [...]

    12. I have mixed feelings about this book. I am surprised that it hasn't been turned into a movie because it is such a soap opera. If I could give it 2 1/2 stars I probably would have done so.Dr. Olivia Simon is treating a gunshot victim who cannot be saved by anyone. The woman who dies is Annie O'Neill, a free spirit who is loved by an entire town. Annie can do no wrong as far as anyone is concerned.However, no one knows but elderly, former lighthouse keeper, Mary Poor, what betrayals Annie has wro [...]

    13. I absolutely hated this book at first. A married couple separates because the husband is in love with a woman who has died, and with whom he apparently had only a superficial relationship. He reminded me of when my daughter was about 12 and was "in loooove" with a boy she'd never spoken to. But I can't NOT finish a book, so I pushed on. Surprisingly, it did pick up in the last half of the book, with revelations that made the characters make more sense. But this was accomplished by the heavy use [...]

    14. Chamberlain has an amazing gift in her ability to script believable characters, all whom have flaws, all of whom are sympathetic. This is the story of a love triangle (actually, more of a rectangle). Olivia is married to Paul, who still carries a torch for Annie, who is married to Alec. Annie dies and Paul leaves Olivia, who then begins a friendship with Alec. Still keeping up? It's somewhat convoluted, but Chamberlain manages to keep it all in check, and honestly I wasn't sure what was going to [...]

    15. Amazing!!! I do not believe Diane Chamberlain could write a bad book – everything she writes is extraordinary! I loved the book and looking forward to reading the other two in the Kiss River series, as just purchased the next two Nook books. My favorite characters were Olivia and Alec!!. Wow, did Annie have everyone fooled along with Mary, the old lady! Loved the setting¸ the lighthouse, and the twists and turns which were page turners! Highly creative writer and each of her books are differe [...]

    16. This book was a very easy read. I really enjoyed the story and how it unfolded. I thought the characters were developed well. And the story had a really good pace. It was a page turn as I wanted to know more about the characters and the story that was unfolding. It is the first book of 3 books. I have the next two ready to read. I am sure I will enjoy them just as much as the first book and am sure I will enjoy other books by this author.

    17. This is obviously one of her earlier books. It's good but not as good as her more recent books. This is part of a trilogy and ive read the last one first! May have to revisit it now I know Lacey and Annie's pastsThis is based on the lies that everyone tells. They all live happily ever after but who ends up with who???? Annie certainly cast her spell on all the men around her but with devastating consequences

    18. Overall, a good read. The flashbacks were sometimes awkward but the storyline delivered and the characters were developed enough that I cared about what happened to them. I have heard good things about Chamerlain and since this is an early effort, I will definitely read more, even in this series. Solid.

    19. Wow, what a tangled web the author weaves in this novel, excellent. I now can't wait to read 'Kiss River'which seems to follow on in the same area.

    20. My review for this book may seem like a contradiction. On one hand, it took me a while to get immersed into the storyline and to feel attached to the characters, but when I did, I was fully in! With that said, I wound up completely unable to stomach Paul and couldn't stand to hear anything else about "Saint Ann." However, I'm sure that was done intentionally by Chamberlain. But how can so many lies be told without no one knowing ? Not one person in the community? I do know that sometimes when we [...]

    21. I first read this in 1993 and it's one of those books that haunts you until you reread it and reread it again. It still touches my heart each time I delve back in.

    22. Olivia Simon is working in the ER when Annie O'Neill is brought in with a gunshot wound. Knowing Annie won't make it to the closest hospital, Olivia decides to operate and Annie dies in the process. Olivia breaks the news to Annie's husband, Alec, his daughter, Lacey, and his son, Clay. The entire town mourns the loss of Annie, who was a humanitarian and philanthropist, always volunteering and helping others. She was also known for her exquisite stained glass, which is displayed throughout Alec' [...]

    23. She wrinkled her nose. “Yes. Turns out she’s a windsurfer herself. She said the only risk she could see was that I might actually have fun for once and not know how to cope with the experience.”You know what? At the beginning of this book I really didn't think id be able to get into it. Stick with it! Once I got to about a quarter of the way in everything was starting to make some sense and I was starting to enjoy the book more and more.Olivia was a good character for me she was insecure a [...]

    24. This book captured my attention after the first 100 pages or so. For me, the unlikeable nature of character Paul and the annoying Saint Annie mantra throughout the first bit of the novel was hard to enjoy. Paul doesn't change much throughout the novel, but Annie's past reveals a completely different character and it was that which captured my attention!I think the thing with Chamberlain is that her novels focus on family, the relationship between friends and family is heavily focused on - it's r [...]

    25. I innocently thought that it would take me weeks to finish this book cos A) it's 500+ pages; and B) thick book intimidate me. But oh my God how wrong I was. It took me less than a week to finally know who's Olivia gonna choose. It's quite obvious towards the end but judging from 70% of the book, she really really wanted to get back together with Paul. (view spoiler)[ I'm team Alec, all the way. I think he's the only one in the story who didn't screw up. Paul ditch his wife for Annie, Olivia kind [...]

    26. KEEPER OF THE LIGHT may be my third or fourth book I've read of Diane Chamberlain--and she is definitely ranking up there as one of my favorite authors! This book was originally published in 1992 and re-released in 2011 (perhaps by a different publisher, but I couldn't be certain). Don't let the first pub date steer you away. It does not come across as dated. Okay, two exceptions that come to mind: 1) At one point, a male character is wearing "stone-washed" jeans. 2) Lack of cell phones (the doc [...]
