The Truth about Delilah Blue, narrated in very pleasant and clear tones by Samantha Kaye, is the coming-of-age story of Delilah Blue, a 20-year-old women - and part-time nude art model - adrift in a sea of confusion and struggling with the regular pains that come with growing up.
Delilah must care for her aging father who struggles with the early onset Alzheimer's. Due to his condition, an old family lie is revealed, putting Delilah's already fragile world into a tailspin.
A tender, poignant, and ultimately redemptive listen about a girl just trying to figure it all out.
Just as Delilah's father falls further and further into Alzeimer's, she discovers that he's been harboring a horrible secret for over 15 years, but he no longer remembers the motivations behind his deception…or the consequences. Reminiscent of the books of Jodi Picoult (House Rules, Keeping the Faith) and Jennifer Weiner (In Her Shoes, Best Friends Forever) - as well as Lisa Genova's breakout novel about Alzheimer's, Still Alice.
The Truth About Delilah Blue by acclaimed author Tish Cohen (Town House, Inside Out Girl) delivers a touching, poignant novel about one young woman's attempt to come to terms with loss, betrayal, and forgiveness.

The plot kept one invested throughout the entire book
When the climax happened
She sounded empathic towards the character
It is very much worth the long time
