Summary
Lydia, the middle and favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, inherited her mother's bright blue eyes and her father's jet-black hair. Her parents are determined that Lydia will fulfill dreams they were unable to pursue - in Marilyn's case that her daughter becomes a doctor, in James's that she is popular with a busy social life. When Lydia's body is found in the local lake, the balancing act that has kept the Lee family together tumbles into chaos, forcing them to confront long-kept secrets that have been slowly pulling them apart

Summary
"A profoundly moving story of family, history, and the meaning of home, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, exploring the divisions between cultures and the rifts within a family, and uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another"--
