I love Kelly Rimmer and the emotion she brings to all of her stories. This was no exception. This does deal with some heavy topics so be mindful of that before jumping into this one.

This one broke my heart. It is told in two perspectives and two different time periods. I actually enjoyed both connected stories. I was emotionally connected to both and each brought tears for their own reasons.

I do feel this dragged a little too long at times. However; I still really enjoyed it. ( )

Last year I was introduced to author Kelly Rimmer by one of my book reviewing friends. I devoured The Things We Cannot Say and was blown away by Rimmer' ability to share multi-faceted characters that felt so real and raw while also diving into a heartbreaking part of our not so distant history.

I loved the dual storylines and how they wove together and kept me guessing until the end. Rimmer captured the power of sharing our stories while also reminding us that many people have a history we might know nothing about. ⁣

When I saw that Rimmer was publishing a new book in 2020 I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Truths I Never Told You captivated me from the very beginning. The topics in this book were something I could personally relate to. While this might not be the case for all readers, I think this is a powerful and important read either way. In the age of new parenthood being portrayed in such a polished (and often super unrelatable or honest manner) on social media, this book was just so spot-on and important.

I was super impressed with Rimmer's ability to write about the struggles of new motherhood when dealing with some of the mental health issues and general ambivalence that can arise and are often not talked about. This is something that is starting to be more common in nonfiction writing about motherhood but not in such a readable fiction format.

Truths I Never Told You alternates between Beth, a new mother in the mid-1990s and her mother Grace who was struggling immensely in the 1950s with raising her four young children. Just like in The Things We Cannot Say, there is a family mystery element that keeps us guessing until the very end. This part of the book is woven so beautifully between the layers of family dynamics and the important complexities of her carefully crafted and multifaceted characters.

Rimmer is absolutely amazing at writing stories that are both compelling and nuanced. She doesn't shy away from interweaving thought-provoking and sometimes very challenging topics while also being a complete page-turner.

I am struggling to write this review without giving away any of the important elements of this powerful story, but I will just say that is is a must-read and if you haven't really any of Rimmer's writing yet, you need to ASAP!

I can't wait to share more about this book when it is published this spring and I already know it will be one of my top books of 2020.

Thank you to NetGalley and Graydon House Books for an advanced copy. All opinions are my own. ( )

I am so impressed with Kelly Rimmer's ability to research and write about a subject in a novel that is so incredibly important to women around the world. Where are we currently headed right now, in this country, with still another effort to overturn Roe versus Wade? I'm wishing every member of the Supreme Court could read this book because it is based on real women and families. Anti-abortion advocates have no substance to their arguments unless they take the entire picture of a woman's life into consideration and continue to ignore the life of the child, the woman and the family into which a child is born.

This is the second Kelly Rimmer book I've read this year and it did not disappoint! I originally got it on audiobook and had planned on listening to it while falling asleep, setting thr timer for 60 minutes... after staying up all night and unable to pull myself away, I realized this is a book I needed to feel in my hands and so I'm now awaiting a physical copy to enjoy as well. I cannot recommend this book enough! ( )

Very good emotional book. Makes you think about relationships and how people really are compared to how they are prescribed.
