Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not Change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

Where mystery & romance collide with and even Bigger Faith…


Truth Be Told brought to mind the powerful narratives a grandmother weaves about the past, holding your attention until she’s done speaking. The story was taken over by Professor Annalee Spain’s voice, leaving me captivated and eager to uncover the identity of the person who poisoned a young black woman, in a time when our worth is diminished.

The addition of charming details, like discussions about flowers and a comical mishap with a roast, brought laughter and relief to an otherwise gloomy moment in Black history. That poor husband on the bus. I don’t have words to express how vivid the moment felt. I can’t fathom living in that era. What I really love is that the author referenced one of my favorite Psalms and even talked about my absolute favorite verses. I received this book through Net Galley and was not required to give a positive review.
