Give Me Your Hand (Large Print / Library Binding)
Kit Owens and Diane Fleming are thrown together as friends in high AP chem class. Both are budding brilliant scientists, competitive in sports and a little awkward at 15 years of age. They are not the best of friends, just ones that seem to gravitate to one another. Diane shows up one day to share a big secret. A horrible secret. Kit is furious and mortified now that she must keep this secret as well. They drift apart while occasionally running into each other and continue to shelter the horrible secret.
Now, ten years later, both women have their doctorates in advanced chemistry working for high power yet competing labs. Kits lab wins a grant to study PMDD that affects girls and women with menstrual cycles that are life destructive if not violent. Kit wants the job to work closely with the PMDD guru but is stunned when they hire Diane to join her in the studies.
Back together on a daily basis, the secret keeps rearing its ugly self both from Diane wanting to bury it and Kit having to stomach the reality of their past. When a murder of a lab technician brings police into the picture, the plot thickens and races to inevitable exposure of more and more secrets.— Kathleen
