Spotlight on A Better Truth by Valerie Joan Connors + Giveaway!!

Publisher: Deeds Publishing
Pub. Date: May 17th, 2016
Pages: 318

When the frantic pace of her Washington, D.C. life becomes too much for her to bear, Willow St. Claire takes refuge in the North Georgia Mountains. She buys a bookstore, hoping to spend her days talking to customers about the latest releases, and her evenings in the quiet oasis of her mountain retreat. Alone in her cabin, two miles away from the nearest neighbor, Willow must learn to cope with the terror of her past, heal from the loss of her mother, and maintain a relationship with a teenaged daughter who refuses to leave D.C. where she lives with her father. But a knock at Willow’s kitchen door late one night sets off a series of events that will shatter her newly found peace and tranquility, and threaten to trigger another breakdown. Willow has held tightly to her own version of the truth for over three decades, because for her, real truth is far too disturbing to acknowledge.

Praise for A Better Truth

"I loved taking this thrilling journey with Willow, who learns that the truth will set you free--if you can survive it. Fascinating, with twists and turns that keep the pages rolling!" —Lynn Cullen, nationally bestselling author of Mrs. Poe and Twain’s End
