In this USA Today bestselling debut novel, Neil Abramson explores the beauty and redemptive power of human-animal relationships and the true meaning of communication in all of its diverse forms. As a veterinarian, Helena was required to choose when to end the lives of the terminally ill animals in her care. Now that she has died, she is afraid to face them and finally admit to herself that her thirty-seven years of life were meaningless, error-ridden, and forgettable. So Helena lingers, a silent observer haunted by the life she left behind-her shattered attorney husband, David; her houseful of damaged but beloved animals; and her final project, Cindy, a chimpanzee trained to use sign language who may be able to unlock the mysteries of animal communication and consciousness. When Cindy is scheduled for a research experiment that will undoubtedly take her life, David must call upon everything he has learned from Helena to save her. In the explosive courtroom drama that follows, all the threads of Helena's life entwine and tear as Helena and David confront their mistakes, grief, and loss and discover what it really means to be human. Abramson's next novel, JUST LIFE, published in May 2016.

For fans of Everything I Never Told You and The Mothers, a deeply moving and unflinching debut following a young Vietnamese-Australian woman who returns home to her family in the wake of her brother’s shocking murder, determined to discover what happened—a dramatic exploration of the intricate bonds and obligations of friendship, family, and community. Just let him go. These are the words Ky Tran will forever regret. The words she spoke when her parents called to ask if they should let her younger brother Denny out to celebrate his high school graduation with friends. That night, Denny—optimistic, guileless, brilliant Denny—is brutally murdered inside a busy restaurant in the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta, a refugee enclave facing violent crime, an indifferent police force, and the worst heroin epidemic in Australian history. Returning home to Cabramatta for the funeral, Ky learns that the police are stumped by Denny’s case: a dozen people were at Lucky 8 restaurant when Denny died, but each of the bystanders claim to have seen nothing. Desperately hoping that understanding what happened might ease her suffocating guilt, Ky sets aside her grief and determines to track down the witnesses herself. With each encounter, she peels back another layer of the place that shaped her and Denny, exposing the seeds of violence that were planted well before that fateful celebration dinner: by colonialism, by the war in Vietnam, and by the choices they’ve all made to survive. Alternating between Ky’s voice and the perspectives of the witnesses, Tracey Lien’s extraordinary debut is at once heart-pounding and heart-rending as it probes the intricate bonds of friendship, family, and community through an unforgettable cast of characters, all connected by a devastating crime. Combining evocative family drama and gripping suspense, All That’s Left Unsaid is a profound and moving page turner, perfect for readers of Liz Moore, Brit Bennett, and Celeste Ng.

Unsaid Words: A Collection of Poetic Family Letters is a collection of poetic letters addressing difficult family conversations. These are conversations we knowingly or unknowing avoid yet if we had spoken these words, it would have improved our family conversations and family relations. In this book, authors Aliker P’Ocitti and Laker Winfred. L. juxtapose the male and female positions in our families to create characters that provoke unspoken words in their poetic letters. In their recollections, the authors open our minds to the salient issues in our families that they wish had been talked about that is never aired out in family conversations. These salient issues are never spoken about because of cultural barriers and sometimes poor family relations in our everyday family life. The authors choice of poetic letters is to symbolize the distant relations between parents and their children and the timing and setting of the book. In the book, the children are already in family relationships and living away from their parents and reminiscing conversations they should have had with their parents and siblings while they were one family. The poetic letters are written by a daughter addressed to her father, a son addressed to his mother, and a brother addressed to his sister. In the response to these poetic letters, the father and mother reply to their son and daughter opening up the family space for conversations, they should have had in their family. The purpose of this book is to incite open conversations in our families today to improve family relations and prepare children for their next family life in marriage and society out there. Poor family relations are one of the leading causes of family breakups, separations and divorce, we hope this book inspires readers to normalize the unsaid words and say them to provoke the difficult conversations we must have to prepare readers for a new family life.
