Coming from a home where kindness and honesty are in short supply, it's
no surprise that Christie O'Kelly gravitates toward her uncle's new wife, who
shows her an abundance of both. Included in the package-deal is a new
cousin. Todd becomes Christie’s friend and then her first love. The next few
years pass in a haze of happiness for Christie. Then one day, she gets the
news in letter. Todd is married—to someone else.
Eight years later, he is standing on her doorstep. The first words out of his
mouth are, "I'm sorry about your uncle." When she demands to know what he
means, he quickly backs away. Christie confronts her uncle and learns that he
has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease--the first of many illnesses that
will change the shape of their lives.
When Todd shows up at her house the next day to offer his moral support,
she sends him packing, but she can't avoid seeing him as crisis after medical
crisis throw them together. Todd pursues her relentlessly, determined to earn
back her trust. Then, when all finally seems to be coming right in her world, her
uncle dies suddenly.
Before Christie even has time to grieve, she finds evidence that causes her
to suspect that his “natural” death may have been murder. With her usual
determination, she plows ahead in search of the truth, even though she knows
that finding it may put the final period to her long and stormy relationship with
Set in beautiful Melbourne Beach, Florida, IF TRUTH BE TOLD is a story of a
young woman learning about love and forgiveness--in equal measure.
