I had such a hard time getting through this book which is very rare for me. It is such a tragic and heart breaking storyline that describes miscarriages, illness, and suicide in such horrifyingly vivid details. Picking up this book felt almost like a chore and left me feeling depressed when I put it down. I felt like the book was entirely redundant and boring until they finally revealed the “big” secret that Jess had been holding onto for 30 years. They built up this secret so much throughout that entire book that by the time they revealed what it was, it was very anticlimactic and ended up being a huge misunderstanding. Overall, just disappointed I wasted my time reading this. ( )

Very well written. The book pulls you into the story right away. ( )

If Only I Could Tell You was one of my highly anticipated fall reading picks. I love books that weave family history into present-day issues and this book kept me guessing while also having a relatable storyline. This was definitely heartbreaking at many moments but also had elements of hope.

Sorrow and loss and the choices we make can have life long ramifications that many readers will be able to relate. This book consists of big tragedies and smaller everyday ones and while I think this will affect readers differently, I connected a lot with this. I enjoyed how the story slowly evolved and I felt like it had a satisfying ending. I love books that suck me in while also having me think about things that have happened in my own life and this was a great balance.

Thank you to Harper Collins & NetGalley for an ARC of this book. All opinions are my own.

If you like a sad tale, this is probably the book for you, as it proves to be a real tear-jerker. Centring on the lives of two sisters, Jess in her late 30s and Lily in her early 40s and their mother, Audrey, the events of 28 years previously have torn apart the two sisters who were the best of companions and now have not spoken to each other for over 12 years. The story is related by the three of them, together with descriptive interludes from 1988 when the event that lead to the rift took place. In the early chapters, the rift seems to be caused by one action, but as the story evolves, Beckerman gradually reveals the real reason. Her writing captures the heartache of Audrey as she attempts to reconcile her two daughters, revealing that each from their own point of view have misunderstood the events of 1988. This makes for a moving story, slightly marred by an ending that seems a little weak.

. If they could have only told each other, the characters in this book could have had much better lives and relationships. Audrey is the mother of estranged sisters, Lily and Jess. Audrey has terminal breast cancer and she wonders, “How do you get to the end of your life and feel as though you’ve barley begun?” Audrey is desperate to mend her family before she dies.

The book is told back and forth from the past and the present and is told from all three women’s point of views. As the book progresses we learn about all the horrible secrets and tragedies that these women have kept to themselves over the years. If this book teaches you anything, it should be to make sure you tell people how you feel.

“A person’s story didn’t follow a straight narrative trajectory from birth to death. There were countless beginnings and endings, countless opportunities to start again. There were as many different beginnings to a life as someone was brave and kind enough to allow themselves.” ( )
