Publisher Description

From the author of the Oprah Book Club Selection An American Marriage, here is an emotionally powerful novel that "succeeds mightily...truly a wonderful story" (Boston Globe).

Aria is no stranger to tragedy -- as a young girl, she and her older sister and mother survived a car crash that took the lives of their father and beloved baby sister. And although relations with her remaining family are strained, she's done her best to establish a solid, normal life for herself, living in Atlanta and teaching literacy to girls who have fallen on hard times.

But now she has a secret that she's not yet ready to share with Dwayne, her devoted boyfriend, or Rochelle, her roommate and best friend: Aria is pregnant. Or so she thinks. The truth is about to make her question her every assumption and reevaluate the life she has worked so hard to build for herself...as it sends her reeling in a direction she had no idea she was destined to go.

The Untelling

Tayari Jones has written a story about life, how circumstances can alter it quickly how children and adults are affected by death. The main character witnessed her fathers death due to a car accident, and the death of her baby sister, as did her mother and older sister. The back is how it affected their lives. As an adult she experiences another loss not death but just as devastating. The story brings to light how death can bring families together or tear them apart. In this case it's the latter. Their hope is in the Untelling bittersweet at the end. Looking forward to more stories from Ms Jones.a
