The Bay at Midnight by Diane Chamberlain

The Bay at Midnight by Diane Chamberlain (2005)
This story takes place in present day, with flashback memories to 1962, when a 17-year old girl was killed at her family’s summer beach house. Now, over 40 years later, the mystery of her murder is reopened, due to a note left by a childhood friend who recently died. The story unfolds in chapters that are alternately narrated by the victim’s mother and two sisters. We learn how each influenced and was affected by the earlier tragedy. The characters are well-defined and believable. Well-written drama regarding family, friendship, issues of race, forgiveness, and guilt.
