Now a widow coping with the loss of her beloved husband-yet powerfully attracted to a dynamic radio talk-show host-Rose turns to her mother for help. In frail health, but still strong in spirit, Sylvie is at long last forced to tear free from the tangled web woven by nearly half a century of lies and reveal a truth that must shatter the lives of both her daughters before it can begin to heal them.Sure to rival the success of the original, this spellbinding novel is the answer to the question readers around the world have been asking since the publication of Garden of Lies nearly a decade ago. In Thorns of Truth the heartrending tale that captivated millions is brought to full bloom at last-and it will leave bedside lamps everywhere burning long into the night.
