Docket Page 56 – All That’s Bright and Gone by Eliza Nellums

CHARGE (What is the author trying to say?): To explore whether secrets are better left alone or exposed.

FACTS: A brother disappears from his sister’s life. She assumes he is dead but is that so? How does a family adapt to their new reality? Ripples of this disappearance flow outward into all aspects of the family’s life. Can revelation of secrets bring healing, or should some things be left unknown? Family dynamics, abuse, and mental health all play a part in this rather improbable story.

VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Guilty, as charged.
