The Truth About Delilah Blue by Canadian author Tish Cohen tells the story of Delilah Blue Lovett, aka Lila Mack, who has lived with her father since a young age. Several years later her mother finds her and explains the circumstances to her (bringing along a precocious younger sister) and everything Lila has believed about her life comes crashing down. Trying to find the answers from her father before Alzheimer’s steals his memory becomes a challenge.
One of the things I thought throughout the book is how well Tish Cohen knows how to write a character. Just wow! Their development made them real to me and made me care what happened to them and what decisions they made. Through her exceptional writing, the author takes you on a guided journey, unhindered, within their lives. It’s one of the most ‘real’ books I’ve read in a long time.
