Description

A haunting debut
novel about a mixed-race family living in 1970s Ohio and the tragedy that will
either be their undoing or their salvation

Lydia is dead. But they don't know this yet ...

So begins the story in this exquisite debut novel about a
Chinese American family living in a small town in 1970s Ohio. Lydia is the
favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee; their middle daughter, a girl who
inherited her mother's bright blue eyes and her father's jet-black hair. Her
parents are determined that Lydia will fulfill the dreams they were unable to
pursue—in Marilyn's case that her daughter become a doctor rather than a
homemaker, in James' case that Lydia be popular at school, a girl with a
busy social life and the center of every party.

When Lydia's body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos. James, consumed by guilt, sets out on a reckless path that may
destroy his marriage. Marilyn, devastated and vengeful, is determined to find a
responsible party, no matter what the cost. Lydia's older brother, Nathan, is
certain the neighborhood bad boy Jack is somehow involved. But it's the
youngest of the family, Hannah, who observes far more than anyone realizes—and
who may be the only one who knows the truth about what happened.

A profoundly moving story of family, history, and the
meaning of home, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping
page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, exploring the divisions between
cultures and the rifts within a family and uncovering the ways in which mothers
and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives,
to understand one another.
