Secrets abound. Everyone has them. They live in all we do–truth hidden from those we try to deceive, to those we love the most. The Truth That Can’t Be Told, is a collection of stories and poems covering a range of genres and styles which encompass humor, romance, Sci fi, and mystery, allowing expression in narrative or poetic form. Written by an eclectic group of writers, The Truth that Can’t be Told brings together perspectives and creativity with one common theme–truth! Each work is as diverse as the writers, but all are varying tales of our oneness living the human condition: losses our hearts mourn, memories our souls yearn, the evil we are capable of, the hurt we cause, the pain we endure, the dreams we imagine, and the deeds we fail. These works encompass what defines us, nourishing our humanity, exposing the worst and inspiring the best in us, by unraveling what is most hidden–the truths that can’t be told.

Lake Forest Writers’ Roundtable has created something truly special with The Truth That Can’t Be Told. While a multiauthor anthology is challenging to produce under any circumstances, these talented and tenacious writers accomplished it during the coronavirus pandemic and California’s strict stay-at-home orders. They not only encouraged each other to keep writing through this unprecedented time but helped each other to polish and elevate their work, taking on the role of both support network and editing team for every contribution. The result of this rigorous teamwork is a cohesive collection of compelling stories and poems that examine various aspects of hidden, sometimes uncomfortable truths—a timely theme for many of us emerging from a locked-down world. Just as the pandemic and its associated disruptions inspired many of us to reflect on the way we view our families, our social networks, and even ourselves, the stories and poems in this collection present readers with new insight and revelations that are sure to linger in our minds long after we’ve turned the last page.
