The intricate and fragile bonds of love and sisterhood face new challenges in Thorns of Truth, Eileen Goudge's riveting sequel to Garden of Lies. Rose, the daughter Sylvie abandoned, and Rachel, the daughter Sylvie chose and protected for years, now confront a new generation of entanglements.
Widowed by her husband Max's death, Rose faces a new man in her life just as her first love, Brian who, like Sylvie, chose Rachel over Rose long ago may be free again. Add the engagement between Rachel's daughter Iris and Rose's son Drew and Thorns of Truth makes for an involving and compelling tale. Reviewed by Sandy Huseby.
