Review: Truth Be Told
Author: Carol Cox
Genre: FICT, Historical Fiction
Short Book Description:
Sometimes the truth can be dangerous…
When Amelia Wagner takes over her father’s newspaper in 1893 Granite Springs, Arizona, she vows to carry on the paper’s commitment to reporting only the truth. But Amelia soon learns that even the truth can have serious consequences. Her father’s revealing articles about the Great Western Investment Company have caught the attention of the wrong people, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father’s statements.
Determined to find out the real story, Amelia begins her own investigation. She’s joined by Benjamin Stone, a Great Western employee who’s been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company, a man Amelia finds both perplexing and intriguing.
What they uncover stuns them both–and has far-reaching implications for not only Ben and Amelia but all of Granite Springs. Can they reveal the truth before the enemy finds a way to silence them for good?
I couldn’t put the book down once I started reading it. It held my interest throughout the whole book, which is a must for me to have the book become a fixture on my shelf or wherever else there is room.
Every character in this book was one that I loved, excluding the bad guys of course. Ben and Amelia were the perfect couple even though their relationship didn’t start with honesty. Homer was very ‘human’ in that he had drawbacks in his Christian life and points where he fell back into his past habits. Clara was hilarious and her brother Martin was the best neighbor to have around.
Reading through the pages made me angry how some men think that they can manipulate everyone into doing what they want them to do for them. Especially back when women had no rights and were just starting to get noticed in the business world.
Anyways, I really loved this book and can’t wait to read more books by the same author.
