Author Kelly returns to Forbes

Locals are encouraged to join internationally best-selling author Kelly Rimmer as she discusses Truths I Never Told You, a heart-tugging story of family secrets, motherhood and marriage.

Kelly, who attended Forbes High School, has been working on a novel since the age of 14, but didn't submit one to a publisher until 20 years later.

She still lives in the Central West, is now a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of ten novels, including The Secret Daughter and The Things We Cannot Say.

She's sold more than one million books, and her novels have been translated into more than 20 languages.

Truths I Never Told You begins with the discovery of a tattered letter in the attic ...

1959: Grace is a young mother with four children under four.

All she ever wanted was to have a family of her own, but there are thoughts Grace cannot share with anyone in the months after childbirth.

Instead she pours her deepest fears into the pages of a notebook, hiding them where she knows husband Patrick will never look.

Fast forward to 1996: When Beth's father, Patrick, is diagnosed with dementia, she and her siblings make the heart-wrenching decision to put him into care.

As Beth is clearing the family home, she discovers a series of notes.

Kelly has spoken at Forbes Library before and her other works include Before I Let You Go, Me Without You, When I Lost You and A Mother's Confession.

She will be speaking at Forbes Library on Tuesday, March 3 at 2pm.

Tickets are free, please book your place online via or call the Library on 6852 1463.
