Fiction Friday - The Truth About Delilah Blue

The Truth About Delilah Blue - Tish Cohen

Tish Cohen is one of my favourite authors and she has done it again. I am wowed, bowled over and in love with this quirky cast of characters that Cohen has created for this gem of a tale.

The Truth About Delilah Blue is, on the surface, a story about a young wanna-be art student who is willing to go to nearly any lengths to get the art degree she desires while she juggles the responsibilities of caring for her ailing father and the shock of dealing with the truth about how they came to be on their own. As the reader dives into this perfectly sculpted story the line between right and wrong gets blurred and just as in 'real life' no one in Delilah's world is entirely good or entirely bad.

It takes little more than the first few pages to fall in love with Delilah, her life and her author. So before you head out to the lake, board a plane or sink into your comfy couch be sure to pick up this fantastic won't be sorry!
