Format: Hardcover
Lainey Hollingsworth has lived her life with the secrets of her birth and her Mother's life hanging over her. She knew her Mother had arrived in England from Italy when Lainey was a newborn, and never had contact with her family or Lainey's father, but as she refused to talk about anything to do with her life in Italy shunning the language and her roots it left a gaping hole in Lainey's life.

Her adoptive Father, Peter, is now suffering from dementia and is in no position to share any of what he may or may not know, but Lainey appreciates how lucky she has been to have had a Father like Peter and adores him for giving her the life he gave her.

Lainey is happily married to author, Tom Hollingsworth. She thinks that she has it all, a loving husband, a beautiful home and two healthy children. Then another secret is revealed that will change their lives forever.

She feels that there is a gap in her life that could be filled with the knowledge of her Mother's life, so decides to visit Umbria, armed only with part of an old crytpic letter of her Mother's, and a few names which went back many, many years.

Luckily Lainey finds people that still remember her family, and after a lot of coaxing she gets them to spill the unspeakable secrets that her Mother hid for so long.

This latest offering from Susan Lewis is another compelling treat for readers, again covering realistic and difficult subjects with the utmost of sensitivity.

As always with Lewis the writing is superb, the characters are engaging and likeable; I felt Lainey's strains and hardships along with her and had a knot lodged deeply in my stomach with the storyline of their teenage daughter, Tierney.

The Truth About You by Susan Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have just finished reading Susan Lewis new book. I was gifted this to read with agreement from Random house publishers and author via Net Galley for an honest review.

Susan Lewis is one of my favourite authors and has been for a long time, so I was thrilled to be able to get an advanced copy.

This story is told in the splendour and warmth that this author always portrays in her reads. They lead into people who become real to you, they could be your neighbors, your friends or your family.

This is a family that have secrets. A family with questions pertaining to two different subjects. A daughter who too hides a path of secrets and a brother like any brother. Argues with each other, but in time of need are there for each other.

This is a family tale the way that Susan Lewis perfects it.

I'm a big fan of Susan Lewis but this book was a double disappointment. Like other reviewers I felt it all started off very well but it rapidly became boring and tedious, found myself skipping a lot of meaningless drivel and really struggled to get to the end. The main characters are thoroughly unlikeable, it was hard to tell who was worst, the self centred smug adults or the obnoxious promiscuous teenagers. There were too many strands to this story, infidelity, internet stalking of a young girl, dark family secrets on both sides and the the plot just lost it! So, you might say 'bad luck', it happens to us all sometimes, you see a book you like in the store, have a quick peek at the first few chapters, pay your dosh and head home to enjoy it. The reason I say double disappointment is because when I seen it was a Susan Lewis book, I didn't bother peeking, I just grabbed it fully confident that it would be a great read. I don't like giving such a poor review as Susan has previously done some great stuff. I'd highly recommend 'Losing You' and 'No Child Of Mine'.

When I immerse myself into a book I like to forget about the outside world however this was impossible as on practically every page the phones were constantly ringing the characters were either making phone calls , texting or receiving texts checking emails oh and Skype appeared(in a ridiculous and nasty subplot involving the daughter) Frankly I was amazed FaceTime wasn't included! All this resulted in was constantly interrupted and irrelevant conversations . Now onto the dreadful daughter Tierney , if I as a hormonal 15 year old had spoken to my mum with the foul language as she did my feet wouldn't have touched the ground. I would have had more respect anyway.As for the foul mouthed,lazy work shy,living off parents Max words fail me. Why did Lainey the mother allow them to treat her this way?Then we move to Italy to find out about Laineys past ,what a drawn out boring part of the book this was without a proper conclusion. When Lainey found out about husbands secret which was quite a bombshell they couldn't even communicate properly about this and then we the readers had to accept the fact that everybody in this dysfunctional family were all going to live together happily ever after! Dream on .I don't think a book has irritated or annoyed me as much as this one the only reason I didn't hurl it through the window was because I was bedridden and didn't have anything else to read.The only 2 characters I had any empathy with was the senile old man and his constant canine companion. Glad to have got all that off my chest I will never read another Susan Lewis book again as her writing is absolutely appalling!
