This event is free to attend and will take place at Bookshop West Portal. No registration is necessary, but early arrival is encouraged to get your seat. 


All Our Lies Are True is a gripping page-turner and a deeply moving portrayal of a woman longing for freedom from her past.

For far too long, Abby Kirkpatrick has lived with survivor's guilt. She was only six when her twin sister, Cassie, vanished without a trace from the room where they slept, an unsolved mystery that continues to haunt her family. Now, Abby is ready for a fresh start-a new town and a promising career in child psychology. Maybe if she can save just one child, it will ease her conscience about losing Cassie.

But when Cassie's remains are discovered, Abby's family is thrust into a devastating "trial by media," with her father emerging as the prime suspect. Despite her older sister's efforts to protect the family from fresh trauma, Abby returns to the crime scene, determined to uncover the truth about that fateful night. As she unravels a web of secrets, Abby realizes the close-knit family she has always trusted might be protecting a killer.





LISA MANTERFIELD is the award-winning author of A Strange Companion and The Smallest Thing, and two works of non-fiction. Originally from northern England, she now lives in Northern California with her husband and two cats. When not writing, she can be found hiking in the redwoods and daydreaming in her vegetable garden. Learn more at
