The Stolen Marriage is a compelling historical novel from New York Times bestselling author Diane Chamberlain.
“[A] well-crafted crime-tinged tale.” —Publishers Weekly
It’s 1944. A twenty-three-year-old nurse named Tess has just ended her engagement to the love of her life when she agrees to marry another man. She moves to Hickory, North Carolina, a small town struggling with racial tensions and the hardships of World War II, where she soon realizes she’s trapped in a strange and loveless marriage with no way out.
The people of Hickory see Tess as an outsider, treating her with suspicion and disdain, leaving her feeling alone and adrift—and terrified. As Tess tries to understand her surroundings and untangle the truth behind her husband’s mysterious ways, can she find the love—and the life—she was meant to have…before it’s too late?
“Combines the issue-driven style of Jodi Picoult [and] the romantic tension of Nora Roberts.”
