He’s a decorated war veteran and he wants to die. She’s a prominent psychologist and she won’t give up on him. Neither knows how to lose. 

When a suicidal client seeks her help, Dr. Angela Blackwell cannot turn him away, despite the fact that he isn’t seeking the kind of help she normally provides her clients. The man, who won’t fully identify himself, wants the distinguished psychologist to stand witness after his planned death in six months’ time, ensuring his wife will not be charged as an accessory or be hindered from collecting the death benefit he carefully provisioned for her. He calls himself DJ and won’t willingly share anything about his past.

As Dr. Blackwell is struggling to reconstruct her own life after the loss of her husband, she recognizes his unusual request as a subconscious cry for help and embarks on a relentless effort to guide the reluctant stranger in uncovering the trauma that has permanently altered the course of his existence. Playing a deck of cards stacked high against her and rushing against time, she has no other option but to intervene, searching for the truth herself, refusing to give up. 

A suspenseful thriller and an astonishing, vibrant story of human strength and frailty, of love lost and love found, Stories Untold will captivate as few stories ever do, with unexpected twists and turns, leaving a lasting memory ingrained into the essence of the reader’s being.

    I read the book and even though it’s quite different to the normal type of book I would choose I enjoyed it and jumped at the chance to own it as an audiobook too.

    This is a story about how one persons struggle to save a life and the knock on effect, leaving ripples on many lives. It’s a eye opener and makes you think and wonder about what is happening in other people’s lives and we shouldn’t be so quick to judge people. Even though I needed tissues at some points (when reading and again when listening) I still enjoyed the story and found the narrator very good.

    Let me start by saying this is not a military romance as such. It is so much more. An exploration in desperation and self loathing with serious themes such as suicide that some readers may find distressing. In the end it is a story of hope and a never ending love.

    A thought provoking book that will not appeal to everyone due to its highly emotional content. However it is certainly worth listening to. Just make sure to have a large box of tissues near by before you start…
