WOW! Sherri Leimkuhler, author of “What’s Left Untold” has written a suspenseful, intriguing, captivating, compelling, and thought-provoking novel. The genres for this novel are Literary Fiction, Suspense, and Women’s Fiction. The story is set in the present and in the past, where it pertains to the characters and events in the story. The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. This is a story about family, friendship, betrayal, loyalty, forgiveness, love, and hope.
Anna Clark is a loving wife and mother of three daughters and would love to have a son. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t seem to be in the cards to have any more children for Anna and Jack, who were high-school sweethearts. Often Anna misses her best friend Lia Clay, who just left one day. She finds a note that Lia had given her years ago that there was something important she had to tell Anna before she disappeared. Somehow as hard as Anna has tried to move on, Lia is always on her mind.
Anna does go to a therapist, and tries to make friends, and does things she likes. Anna is ambivalent about a 20-year school reunion that is coming up. She wants to see Lia and is afraid to see Lia. The question of why Lia left suddenly, with no explanation has Anna very upset.
There are deep dark secrets and betrayals, twists and turns, that make this a very edgy and suspenseful story. I would highly recommend this thought-provoking and riveting story.
