The Face Tells the Secret by Jane Bernstein is a story of a woman who discovers love and learns how to open herself to life’s happier relationships.

The main character, Roxanne, a single 40-year old product designer living in Pittsburgh, finds out that she has a twin sister living near Tel Aviv in a group institute, Chaverim, who is profoundly disabled. This is a deeply moving story about the ways we are loved and the ways we let ourselves be loved.

A definite page-turner, The Face Tells the Secret reveals family secrets and the realization that Roxanne’s mother is not capable of maternal love.

Bernstein’s characters come alive.

The author brings together her considerable skills as a writer and has told her finest story with much for the reader to discover.
