About

Overview

With her father recently moved to a care facility, Beth Walsh volunteers to clear out the family home and is surprised to discover the door to her childhood playroom padlocked. She’s even more shocked at what’s behind it — a hoarder’s mess in the otherwise fastidiously tidy house. As she picks through the clutter, she finds a loose journal entry in what appears to be her late mother’s handwriting. Beth soon pieces together a disturbing portrait of a woman suffering from postpartum depression and a husband who bears little resemblance to the loving father Beth and her siblings know. Now, Beth finds there may be more tying her to her mother than she ever suspected.

Customer Reviews

“Illuminating . . . engrossing [and] harrowing . . . Rimmer’s suspenseful narrative will enthrall and move readers.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Kelly Rimmer’s shimmering and poignant new novel [Before I Let You Go] broadens our current national conversation about seeking to combat the deadly yet curable disease of addiction while being ultimately a story of relationships.”

— Library Journal (Editor’s Pick)

“The back-and-forth between Beth in the 1990s and Grace’s notes from the 1950s creates momentum, and readers of epistolary novels will nod at Grace’s depiction of the lack of choices for women of that time. Contrasting that with the stigma of getting mental health help, which was still strong in the ‘90s, Rimmer paints a picture of women finding their strength then and now.”
