Buried Truths tells the story of 14-year-old Zoë, who after the death of her mother moves from Toronto to small town Newfoundland to live with a father she believed was dead. Whenever you delve into the mind of a teenager you are bound to wind up with a certain amount of selfishness and---while not lacking here---there is more than the typical teen heartache and jealousies. While working at an archaeology site in Newfoundland, Zoë really comes into her own. Digging into her own history she finds turmoil after reading her mothers old journals. Each chapter in the book starts off with a quote from Shakespeare’s The Tempest and the Bard is thoughtfully woven into the plot line. While sometimes predictable there are a lot of unearthed secrets and a few unexpected surprises in the novel. Buried Truths is a page-turner I didn’t want to put down. (Book release at Uncommon Grounds, 1030 South Park Street, Thursday May 9, 5:30pm.)
