Abstract:

"Bestselling author Patti Callahan Henry is back with a powerful novel about the stories we tell and the people we trust. Eve and Cooper Morrison are Savannah's power couple. They're on every artistic board and deeply involved in the community. She owns and operates a letterpress studio specializing in the handmade; he runs a digital magazine featuring all things southern gentlemen. The perfect juxtaposition of the old and the new, Eve and Cooper are the beautiful people. The lucky ones. And they have the wealth and name that comes from being part of an old Georgia family. But things may not be as good as they seem. Eve's sister, Willa, is staying with the family until she gets "back on her feet." Their daughter, Gwen, is all adolescent rebellion. And Cooper thinks Eve works too much. Still, the Morrison marriage is strong. After twenty-one years together, Eve and Cooper know each other. They count on each other. They know what to expect. But when Cooper and Willa are involved in a car accident, the questions surrounding the event bring the family close to breaking point. Sifting between the stories--what Cooper says, what Willa remembers, what the evidence indicates--Eve has to find out what really happened. And what she's going to do about it. A riveting story about the power of truth, The Stories we Tell will open your eyes and rearrange your heart."--

"Eve and Teddy Morrison are Savannah's power couple. They're on every artistic board and involved deeply in the community. And they have the wealth and name that comes from being part of an old Savannah family. But things aren't as good as they look. Eve and Teddy are fighting about her work, their marriage, and their daughter most of all. Teenaged Gwen is rebelling and Teddy is blaming this on Eve's preoccupation with work. The Morrison marriage is taut with tension, but when Teddy is involved in a car accident with Eve's sister, Willa, the questions surrounding the event bring the family close to breaking point. Sifting between the stories, Eve has to find out what really happened--and just who she believes."--
