Summary:

"Don't part with your illusions, when they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live." Mark Twain. Her illusions perished under the tyranny of the truth. The girl was trapped, but the woman was meant to be free.

 

The Unbearable Weight of Truths Untold is a spin-off story from “The Tyranny of Unintended Consequences”. It can be read as a standalone, TUWoTU is completely comprehensible on its own.

An arranged marriage between the Duke of Whitlock, a man with a tainted past, and Lady Isabella Swan (Cullen), a beautiful English Rose. Her journey from girlhood to womanhood will be a consequence of uncovering her husband’s past. It’s a feminine perspective of a society constrained by stifling rules of behaviour, by hypocritical notions of morality and by the misogyny of laws created to imprison women.
