Life After Truth by Ceridwen Dovey – Our Review
On a weekend to remember, five Harvard graduates return to campus to celebrate their success and achievements at their fifteen year reunion. Together the friends are now middle aged, with varying lives of their own to contend with and as they reunite it is one beautiful mesh of very distinctive people.
Jules is a famous actor who from the outside seems to have it all. While Mariam and Rowan are wrestling two young children and their budget after prioritising meaning over well earning careers.
Eloise is a well regarded professor of psychology who is an expert on the art of happiness, while Jomo the founder of a thriving jewelry company knows a stunning ring when he sees one but can’t bring himself to propose to his girlfriend with the one he carries in his pocket.
When the most notable student in their year, Frederick ends up dead at the reunion the friends discover that perhaps they don’t know as each other or themselves as well as they thought.
Life After Truth by Ceridwen Dovey is a fantastic character centred book, one that is ultimately about love, friendships and the choices we all make in life to pursue happiness.
