About the Book
"So often the truth needed a little spicing up."
Dair Canard has made up tales since she was a child. Now, as an adult, she finds herself lying at the slightest provocation, with greater and greater finesse. She has established herself as an actress, and bonded with her husband, Peyton, on the premise of her greatest lie ever--a fictitious twin sister who died at the age of 10. But Dair now finds herself at a point in her life where her lies threaten to avalanche. The mysterious death of a dear friend, the divorce of her parents, her increasingly serious drinking problem, and the strain of deceiving Peyton all finally collide.
While attempting to sort the truth from the lies, Dair encounters a blurry line between what is real and what she has made up. Groping to make sense of the events unfolding around her, Dair finally begins to listen to an inner voice she has ignored for too long, in a desperate attempt to uncover the secret that has haunted her since child-hood. Yet it is only when she frees herself to commu-nicate honestly with everyone and everything around her that the mystery surrounding her friend's death starts to unravel. As she struggles to get her life back on track, Dair learns the truth about her friend's death…and all her lies come tumbling down to unveil a few basic truths, one of which is that each of us has something to hide.
Two Truths a Lie explores the consequences of self-deception, and the complicated relationships we share with everyone in our lives.
