Unsaid: A Novel

by Neil Abramson

Center Street | August 4, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Unsaid: A Novel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
In this explosive debut novel, Neil Abramson explores the beauty and redemptive power of human-animal relationships and the true meaning of communication in all of its diverse forms.
As a veterinarian, Helena was required to choose when to end the lives of the terminally ill animals in her care. Now that she has died, she is afraid to face them and finally admit to herself that her thirty-seven years of life were meaningless, error-ridden, and forgettable. So Helena lingers, a silent observer haunted by the life she left behind-her shattered attorney husband, David; her houseful of damaged but beloved animals; and her final project, Cindy, a chimpanzee trained to use sign language who may be able to unlock the mysteries of animal communication and consciousness.
When Cindy is scheduled for a research experiment that will undoubtedly take her life, David must call upon everything he has learned from Helena to save her. In the explosive courtroom drama that follows, all the threads of Helena's life entwine and tear as Helena and David confront their mistakes, grief, and loss and discover what it really means to be human.

Abramson's next novel, JUST LIFE, published in May 2016.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unsaid Get your tissue before you start reading. This book is almost uncomfortably realistic. It is a beautifully told story of what are the most heart wrenching times in a person's life. If you have a special pet in your life, you will see yourself in these pages.
