Publisher's Summary

In this intense, multilayered domestic drama, two families become entangled in a web of lies, secrets, and betrayal that results in an act of violence so shocking their love may not survive.

On the outside, Lily Isley's life seems perfect: a wealthy husband, a ritzy gated community in Dallas, and a handsome son, AJ - a decorated marine about to be married to his love, Shea. But when a bridesmaid is murdered in AJ's apartment and he can't be found, Lily's world collapses and a long-held family secret is at risk of exposure.

Dru Gallagher's life took a different course. After her ex-husband, suffering from post-traumatic stress, threatened her and her daughter, Shea, with a shotgun, Dru was forced to leave her marriage and forge ahead as a working-class single mom. Now, the anger she sees in war veteran AJ's eyes is heartbreakingly familiar - and makes Dru deeply afraid for her daughter's safety...especially after Shea's best friend and maid of honor is found dead.

With a killer on the loose and time running out, Lily and Dru, two very different women, unite in a single goal: to save their precious children from scandal, even from death. But will the mothers' protection be enough, or will the fateful secret they expose - and the truth it reveals - destroy every hope of love?

    "Storyline good but narration terrible"

    I liked the storyline but the narration was terrible. Reminded of guy who narrated Michael Bennet books by Patterson.....a lack of emotion when emotion was needed!

    "Lots of twists and turns!"

    I didn't see who was behind the killings until they were exposed. The characters in the story were great, you either loved them or hated them; which is awesome when they can evoke that kind of emotion.

    "the truth"
    What disappointed you about The Truth We Bury?

    Mostly the narrator. the dialog was very corny. Seems more like a young adult book


    What could Barbara Taylor Sissel have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    improve dialog and ge another narrator


    What didn’t you like about Donna Postel’s performance?

    It was over done. She had too much intensity when it wasn't needed. Just made it sound silly.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    So far I haven't found any
