Allie just wants the truth.

When Allie’s brother and sister-in-law die in a car accident, Allie is left with the care of their adopted son, Danny—and enormous debt. Now she’s forced to sell part of the farm to make ends meet. Still reeling from her broken engagement, Allie has no interest in men—especially those who lie.

Derrick is on a mission. His dying sister’s last wish is to know her son is happy with his adopted family, so Derrick hides behind his job as Realtor to investigate Allie and Danny. But soon his reconnaissance mission turns into much more when his feelings grow for Allie and the nephew he’s never known.

Will Derrick’s half-truths spin a destructive end? Or can Allie and Derrick overcome a web of deceit to finally see the truth and admit their love?

Question for you--Have you ever had someone fool you with only half the truth and how did that make you feel? 


  1. Wow, that's a tough question. I think I've been fooled more through seeing what I wanted to see.

    I love the cover of this book. So beautiful!

    Wow, interesting question. I respectfully disagree with it a bit. I think a half truth is really a lie. Telling only part of something is just as misleading as telling it incorrectly, if that is the intent. This is why I really, really do not like the movie "Liar, Liar" because he is able to mislead people when he is supposed to not be able to lie. But I digress... I actually had a similar situation very recently and it has put a strain on a friendship. As Christians, we should always approach everything with the utmost integrity. Thanks for the food for thought.

  3. Aaron, thanks for your comment. You are right, of course. A half truth is still a lie.

  4. This is something the hero in the book had to come to grips with. . .the fact that even a half truth was still wrong. It was his spiritual conflict.
