The Unveiling is about the power of a family secret and the struggle to reveal the truth.



Leah Rae Lambert, Author

For thirty years Ettie Burin led friends to believe she was a widow. The truth comes out when her husband dies, and her elder daughter plans a public funeral.

Ettie and her family share memories during the mourning period, recreating struggles to escape from physical oppression in czarsit Russia and later from the stigma of mental illness.  Personal revelations force Ettie and her children to come to terms with the past and break the silence surrounding the mental illness that has shaped their relationships with the outside world.

Surprising events and courageous actions during the following year enable the family to experience the leberation of an unveiling.


Excerpt

When the musicians began to play a fox trot, Jake came over and took Ettie's hand. "C'mon kiddo," he said, "you're gonna dance this one with me."

They moved onto the dance floor, he put his arm around her waist, and they began taking the first steps. Suddenly Ettie felt a hand fall heavily on her shoulder, and she nearly stumbled as it pulled her back. She turned to see Morton, his face dark with fury, yelling at Jake. "I'm not gonna let you break up my family."

Ettie gasped as his fist shot through the air and connected with Jake's face. Jake fell to the ground, and Ettie screamed, horrified at what was happening. Then she swayed, and everything went black.
