Unsaid, Neil Abramson

In the tradition of The Art of Racing in the Rain, but wholly original in its own right, this novel pulled me in right from the beginning. Helena, an empathic veterinarian, wife to David, partner at a prestigious Manhattan law firm, has passed away. But she lingers, and is, in fact, the compelling narrator of the story. Unable to concede that her life was not as significant as she desired—Helena wanted to make a difference in the lives of the animals she encountered—she lingers, watching over her husband and friends as they try to tie up the loose ends she left behind when she died. It is a beautiful and moving portrait of a human being in concert with other living creatures on this earth, and speaks to the fear that lives in many, if not all of us, about whether or not this life on earth is all we have, and what happens to us after we die. Compassionate and absorbing, this is a great book—I couldn’t put it down. – Jenny Lyons, Center Street, $14.99
