About the Book

On his deathbed, an old man has summoned his youngest daughter to relate the story of his life and the love shared with his wife, her mother. And at the end, he will reveal the lie that he has kept hidden from her, the lie that will be shattering and yet, rewardingly beautiful. Thus begins the memoir of a man who finds and falls in love with the only woman that could change him. He relates his life's story of when he met her mother and their life together. He can still remember, vividly, how they first met on a chance encounter, their first date, even their first kiss, the courting, marriage and child rearing. And through all of their triumphs and tragedies, the one constant was his love for his wife and her, a love that lasted all of their lives together. And beyond. At the end there is a shocking twist. As the man pulls from his arms the needles and the tubes that bring the fluids to his failing body, he reveals to his daughter the truth, a revelation that will keep readers thinking long after they discover the secret to THE LIE.
