The Photograph by Penelope Lively

In The Photograph, Kath Peters was a beautiful woman, loved and adored by friends and family, and remembered fondly, yet differently, by each of them after her death. Her husband, Glyn, finds an old photograph of Kath, her hand intertwined lovingly with his brother, Nick. Glyn becomes obsessed about finding the truth behind the photograph and begins to question friends and family about Kath's past. What emerges is a woman whom everyone only knew partly and none of them knew her completely, including Glyn. Penelope Lively's fifteenth novel plays with the idea of what makes a person and how do memories of the past color the truth. The Deseret Morning News calls it The Photograph "compelling and suspenseful."
