"The Truth According To Us" by Annie Barrows
What I liked about the novel....
This was a very well written story of just how secrets were kept in this Depression era West Virginia town that were brought out by a young woman assigned by the Roosevelt Writer Project to research this towns Macedonia history for its 150th birthday. The stories that were brought out were simply amazing especially for one family ...The Romeyn's. I found the characters were well developed, defined, well portrayed and believable giving the reader a fascinating read up to the point of making the reader feel that they are engaging into some of the conversations.
"The Truth According to Us" was quite a read of what loyalty was to a family, along with family love, and characters with secrets. Then by the end of the read we will see redemption, forgiveness and most of all hope that will come into play....All giving the reader a good read.
