The Untelling, Tayari Jones second novel, is both beautifully written and a deeply compelling story. Ariadne, who goes by a shortened version of her name, Aria, has found a part of her life cut short just as she is ready to begin it. On the verge of marriage, she discovers that she is experiencing early-onset menopause. But the symptoms¿exhaustion, nausea, no periods¿make her believe for a short while that she is pregnant. Once she discovers the truth, the question changes from how she will accommodate a new life to how she will go forward in her own, with a future that looks very different from the one she imagined. A powerful backstory magnifies the present storyline, starting with a cataclysmic event that continues to haunt Aria and her mother and sister until they pull together to overcome loss once again. Read this, and if you haven¿t already, pick up Leaving Atlanta. I look forward to more from this inspired writer!
