UNSAID is told from the perspective of Helena Colden, a veterinarian who has just died of breast cancer. Helena is forced to witness the rapid emotional deterioration of her husband David. With Helena's passing, David, a successful Manhattan attorney, loses the only connection that made his life full. He tries to carry on the life that Helena had created for them, but he is too grief stricken, too angry, and too quickly reabsorbed into the demands of his career. Helena's animals likewise struggle with the loss of their understanding and compassionate human companion. Because of Helena, David becomes involved in a court case to save the life of a chimpanzee that may hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of animal consciousness. Through this case all the threads of Helena's life entwine and explode - unexpectedly, painfully, beautifully.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Touching and emotional. - Publishers Weekly

Enjoyed it thoroughly. - Jeffrey Masson, author of When Elephants Weep

...a remarkable book. - Susan Wilson, author of One Good Dog and The Fortune Teller's Daughter

A poignant read on the meaning of life and its priorities - how death and despair can lead to renewal and life, but only if one realizes the interconnectedness of all creatures. - Irene M. Pepperberg, author of Alex and Me

This moving and riveting novel beautifully expresses the transforming power of the human-animal relationship. Read it if you shared your life with an animal, but more importantly, read it if you haven't. - Gene Baur, president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary and author of the bestseller Farm Sanctuary
