Introduction

Winner of New Adult Fiction-- Beverly Hills Book Awards for 2016

Winner of the 2016 SILVER Medal for Best Fiction in Drama from Readers Favorites

Finalist USA Best Books Awards 2016 in Literary Fiction and in New Fiction

A story of the complexity of the bonds between parents and children and how difficult it can be to escape them, Things Unsaid is a highly charged family saga of characters fighting for space to breathe.

Jules, her sister Joanne, and her brother Andrew all grew up in the same household?but their varying views of and reactions to their experiences growing up have made them all very different people. Now, as adults with children of their own, they are all faced with the question of what to do to help their parents, who insist on maintaining the upscale lifestyle they’re accustomed to despite their mounting debts. A deft exploration of the ever-shifting covenants between parents and children, Things Unsaid is a ferocious tale of family love, dysfunction, and sense of duty over forty years.
