It was a summer of love, and a summer of secrets … She has built a good life: a husband who adores her, a daughter she is fiercely proud of, a home with warmth and love at its heart. But things were not always so good, and the truth is that she has done things she can never admit. Then one evening a phone call comes out of the blue. It is a voice from long ago, from a past that she has tried so hard to hide. Scott knows who she really is and what she has done. Now he is dying and he gives her an ultimatum: either she tells the truth, or he will. And so we are taken back to that long hot summer of 1976 to a house by the sea, where her story begins and where the truth will be revealed. Told in dual narratives that jump back and forth in time, Elliot Wright has crafted a story with secrets that unfold through the very last page. Compelling, immersive, and thoroughly surprising, The Secrets We Left Behind is a stunning follow up to the author’s acclaimed debut The Things We Never Said.

Summary

It was a summer of love, and a summer of secrets …

She has built a good life: a husband who adores her, a daughter she is fiercely proud of, a home with warmth and love at its heart. But things were not always so good, and the truth is that she has done things she can never admit.

Then one evening a phone call comes out of the blue. It is a voice from long ago, from a past that she has tried so hard to hide. Scott knows who she really is and what she has done. Now he is dying and he gives her an ultimatum: either she tells the truth, or he will.

And so we are taken back to that long hot summer of 1976 to a house by the sea, where her story begins and where the truth will be revealed.

Told in dual narratives that jump back and forth in time, Elliot Wright has crafted a story with secrets that unfold through the very last page. Compelling, immersive, and thoroughly surprising, The Secrets We Left Behind is a stunning follow up to the author’s acclaimed debut The Things We Never Said.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A riveting and vivid novel about a woman who is forced to examine her past. As the narration gracefully alternates between the contemporary and 1976, the reader is pulled deeper and deeper into the narrator’s world, the increasing sense of doom making this a book impossible to put down. Elliot Wright spins a powerful and haunting story where love and loss collide, where impulsive decisions change lives, and where redemption is hard earned.” Ann Weisgarber, author of The Promise and The Personal History of Rachel DuPree
