Necessary Lies

Fiction by Diane Chamberlain.

This was an amazing story about a social worker in 1960 who is trying to do what she thinks is best for her clients. She is young and idealistic, and she soon finds out her feelings don't always line up with the official manual at work, or with those of her supervisors. In addition, it's difficult to tell what the best thing for another person really is, and there are no easy answers when dealing with real-life poor people. 

An absorbing and thought-provoking story!

I also read by this author: The Courage Tree
