    We will discuss The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain. We have enjoyed books by Ms. Chamberlain twice before and found her an excellent author which interesting, thought-provoking novels.  Born in New Jersey, Ms. Chamberlain now lives in the mountains of North Carolina and often uses the area as the background for her writing.  This book was inspired by the true story of the citizens of Hickory, NC building a hospital and getting it operational in 54 days after the polio epidemic hit in 1944. Twenty-three-year-old Tess DeMello breaks her engagement and marries a much older man.  Moving to Hickory, Tess finds herself an outsider and her husband a much-admired man.  Tess soon learns she is in a loveless marriage. She wonders what the people of Hickory see in her husband that she doesn’t. When polio hits this small southern town,  Tess who is a nurse finds meaning in helping her young patients.  Yet at home, Henry’s actions grow more alarming by the day.  Can she untangle the mystery of her husband’s behavior and save her own life? We welcome new members at any meeting.
