The Book

A courageous, true account of the loss of love over the course of a 23-year interfaith and interracial marriage. Beatriz is a young, spirited Brazilian woman who dreams of opening up an English language school in her home country. She comes to Canada to improve her English where she falls in love with and marries a young Muslim refugee. Although there is love in the beginning, it soon becomes apparent that Beatriz cannot live up to the religious, cultural, and traditional expectations of her husband. She had married the man she loved, but at what cost to herself? Only decades later would she realize that the love she thought would save her had become the weapon that nearly destroyed her.

Reviews

“This book is a fluent and seductive narrative that makes us uneasy at the outcome of ever-surprising situations. Everything is very lively and dynamic enough to urn the reader into an eyewitness of the story told. We want more, Helen!” 

“This book explores the difficulties of cultural differences in a long term relationship. The couple in the book came from two completely opposed background experiences and met while immersed in a third cultural environment. As time passes they try to accommodate each other for their different points of view but it becomes obvious to search for alternative arrangements while there is so much oppression. Difficult decisions have to be taken. The author is very convincing and makes it impossible to stop reading it.”

“Helen Dantas does an excellent job of conveying the challenges faced not only in arriving to a new country but in finding oneself in a difficult marriage. The cultural clashes the protagonist is faced with mirror many of the issues found today in our society. Dantas handles these delicate themes with extreme poise and opens a window into what is for many an unknown world. A must read.”

“Helen Dantas knows how to tell a story! As someone who usually has a few books on the go, I could not put this one down. Highly recommend.”

“This real story novel is fantastic. It really shows how love may lead you to dark places and the price to pay for jumping into a relationship that is forbidden by certain cultures. The book is very well written and extremely interesting. Once you start reading it, you may not be able to put down until its finished.”

“Unveiling the Truth” provides a great insight into the unexpected challenges and misunderstanding that can arise within intercultural relationships. Although the story concerns some sensitive issues, it is written in such a funny, witty way that it made me laugh and smile at many passages, making the book extremely compelling and hard to put down. A real must read!”

“A Great story that reveals the reality of multicultural challenges that the new society faces nowadays. The book is a journey into the multifaceted dimensions of cultural established prints that are impossible to ignore or to try to minimize. “Unveiling the Truth” is more than a novel, it is a deep view into the difficulties and limitations of multicultural relationships! Very well written and enlightening! Deserves to be transformed into a movie!”

“This is an amazing book written with a lot of courage and magic touch that keeps you reading it with a avidity and interest. Helen, you are a tremendous heart!!! Congratulations!!!”

“Not even love can overcome the differences between different cultures. Unveiling the Truth is a book written with emotion and sincerity. The marriage between people of different religions and cultures is a difficult topic to address. The author has managed to develop a touching and interesting story while exposing the everyday situations that makes living together harder when it involves people from dramatically opposed cultures. I recommend the reading.”
