Hannah Beckerman pens a life-affirming novel that tells the story of a family divided and the secret that can possibly unite them??a must for fans of This Is Us.

"I loved it (even though it made me cry)."??Jojo Moyes

A secret between two sisters.
A lifetime of lies unraveling.
Can one broken family find their way back to each other?

Audrey's dream as a mother had been for her daughters, Jess and Lily, to be as close as only sisters can be. But now, as adults, they no longer speak to each other, and Audrey's two teenage granddaughters have never met. Audrey just can't help feeling like she's been dealt more than her fair share as she's watched her family come undone over the years, and she has no idea how to fix her family as she wonders if they will ever be whole again.

If only Audrey had known three decades ago that a secret could have the power to split her family in two, and yet, also keep them linked. And when hostilities threaten to spiral out of control, a devastating choice that was made so many years ago is about to be revealed, testing this family once and for all.

Once the truth is revealed, will it be enough to put her family back together again or break them apart forever?

"Utterly compelling and completely heartbreaking. I couldn't put it down."
?? Ruth Hogan

"Totally engrossing, achingly sad and so perceptive about the corrosive legacy of family secrets."??Kate Eberlen, author of Miss You… (mere)

So often I find that conflicts between family members are meaningless and kind of stupid in novels (and generally in real life too, but that's a different conversation) but, while I still think this one was a bit stupid because Jess seriously never confronted Lily about it or told her why she was angry? Communication, jeesh. it did feel far more worthy of having a conflict than most family books do. I cried at this one, and loved the teenage granddaughters. I think Zoe should have been introduced far earlier. But on the whole this was pretty good. ( )

Honest to goodness, this was not the story I thought I was walking into when I first started reading....and I think that's why it was bothering me for a while as I read. There were all these secrets being alluded to, but unrevealed, one in particular that seemed to start them all, and if it didn't come out sooner rather than later, I thought I might throw my first book. Hey, I'm being honest! It kept circling round and round the hidden truth without lifting the curtain it was behind. Eventually about two thirds in, it happened...and from there my outlook on everything changed. The losses felt so deeply among this family, the divisions that were the fallout of misunderstandings and assumptions...they all changed their lives so drastically, and filled them with so much hurt and resentment. It certainly speaks to clearing to the air and speaking your heart in lieu of getting lost between the what ifs and might have beens.

I had such a hard time getting through this book which is very rare for me. It is such a tragic and heart breaking storyline that describes miscarriages, illness, and suicide in such horrifyingly vivid details. Picking up this book felt almost like a chore and left me feeling depressed when I put it down. I felt like the book was entirely redundant and boring until they finally revealed the “big” secret that Jess had been holding onto for 30 years. They built up this secret so much throughout that entire book that by the time they revealed what it was, it was very anticlimactic and ended up being a huge misunderstanding. Overall, just disappointed I wasted my time reading this. ( )

Very well written. The book pulls you into the story right away. ( )

If Only I Could Tell You was one of my highly anticipated fall reading picks. I love books that weave family history into present-day issues and this book kept me guessing while also having a relatable storyline. This was definitely heartbreaking at many moments but also had elements of hope.

Sorrow and loss and the choices we make can have life long ramifications that many readers will be able to relate. This book consists of big tragedies and smaller everyday ones and while I think this will affect readers differently, I connected a lot with this. I enjoyed how the story slowly evolved and I felt like it had a satisfying ending. I love books that suck me in while also having me think about things that have happened in my own life and this was a great balance.

Thank you to Harper Collins & NetGalley for an ARC of this book. All opinions are my own.
