One thing which really bothered me was the constant repetition of the title. Unspoken truth this, unspoken truth that.
Since several folks have mentioned this, I was intrigued, so I went through the ms. just now and counted.

Not counting the title, "unspoken truth(s)" is used six times.

I'd intended it as a leitmotif, my version of "the wine-dark sea," if you will. Didn't realize it was so intrusive.
