something that was previously unknown (and typically surprising); or making such a thing known
  • But that was wrong, he knew; her French was bookish, and what gave him pain was not the memory of Stony Hill but the revelation of her alter-soul's entombment: She came alive, speaking French; all her humor irony and wrath came suddenly together like fire and powder, and the Millie who'd survived went dark and fell away, and the woman she'd once meant to be rose out of the grave of abandoned hopes, came striding forth, as confident as a smiling ghost at dusk.
