In this moving sequel to the unforgettable Garden of Lies, Rose Santini Griffin and Rachel MacClanahan, now grown women with children of their own, are once again thrust into a head-on collision with the destiny that has haunted them since the two were switched at birth on the night of a catastrophic hospital blaze.Now they face the greatest challenge of their lives: the impending marriage of Rose's capable and thoughtful son to Rachel's emotionally fragile daughter, which threatens to divide both families forever-just as Rachel's dear mother, Sylvie, learns she is dying.Only Rose knows that Sylvie is in actuality her mother-and what she wants more than ever is to be loved and recognized as Sylvie's own. 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.

display_description Nearly five decades after they were swapped at birth, two women change each other's lives Sylvie Rosenthal is dying, and one great mistake still weighs on her soul. In 1943, as a new mother in a Bronx maternity ward, she feared for her life. What would happen when her husband saw their new daughter, whose dark hair and black eyes proved she wasn't his own? Sylvie couldn't bear to find out, and during a terrifying hospital fire fled the building with another woman's child in her arms. Decades later, she told her real daughter the truth, but asked Rose to keep her secret, lest it destroy Rachel, the girl Sylvie raised as her own. Then, after years of silence, the two women's lives, intertwined in more ways than one, are once more turned upside down. In this sequel to the blockbuster Garden of Lies, Rose and Rachel, bound forever by a secret that only one of them understands, must both find the courage to face the truth. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
