If Only I Could Tell You by Hanna Beckerman

 Audrey's family has fallen apart. Her two grown-up daughters, Jess and Lily, are estranged, and her two teenage granddaughters have never been allowed to meet. A secret that echoes back thirty years has splintered the family in two, but is also the one thing keeping them connected. 

As tensions reach breaking point, the irrevocable choice that one of them made all those years ago is about to surface. After years of secrets and silence, how can one broken family find their way back to each other?


I received a copy of this from NetGalley in return for an honest review (this was earlier in the year before my Blog and Bookstagram)

I had been Seeing this book all over my Twitter feed for weeks, I follow the author and Publisher, so I knew the book looked pretty interesting. So as soon as I noticed it was available for request on Netgalley, I jumped at the Chance of getting to read it before its release.

This book is amazing. There is no other way of putting it. A family orientated Story, with a hell of a lot of drama. The story is told from the perspective of a few different Characters. I like this style of storytelling, as I think it gives you a better understanding of how each person is feeling. 

Ok, so there is Audrey, an older lady who is the main character, her daughters, Lily and Jess, and her teenage grandaughters Mia and Phoebe, and a few extras thrown in along the way. The daughters haven't spoken in years, no one knows why. The grandaughters have never met, and Audrey wants to fix things, while she still can.

I loved Audrey. She seemed a very caring soul, a young at heart Gal, who wants nothing more than to reconcile her daughters. But this big secret controls them all in ways the others don't even understand.

I would thoroughly recommend this book, but beware, you will need a stack of tissues (also, don't read this while you're "watching you kids play twister", or they'll Start to wonder what they've done to make you cry!). 

Beautiful Story, with Such a twist you won't have seen coming. Plus... counting to 30 will never feel the same again.
