Overview Betrayed by the fertility expert who helped her bear her late husband's child, Lara Godfrey fled before the birth to protect her son. Now, five years later, the child has the ability to see through lies, making him all the more valuable to the man who brokered the genetic experiment.
A five-year-old boy can sense who is telling the truth...and who isn't. It's a gift some will do anything to silence and a mother will do anything to protect.

Placing her life in the hands of a doctor she believes she can trust, Lara doesn't relize a web of deception is being woven around her. An unseen voyeur, with dreams of immortality, plans to use the child for a test--an unbelievable experiment that could have genetic consequences not only for Lara's baby, but for the entire human race. In the face of danger, Lara must make impossible choices. That's why she flees the clinic before the baby's birth. It's why she changes her name and hides. She knows she must protect this gifted child who can see through lies and identify truth. Yet how can an innocent truth-telling boy survive in a world that wants to destroy truth at any cost?

A Must Read Feb 8, 2009
I read all of the time; but I never write reviews. This book merited one. Angela Hunt obviously knows the Lord AND is a great story-teller. Hard to find in the Christian fiction world these days. Great plot, great read- very enjoyable and uplifting- all at the same time. Thank you Angela!
The Truth Teller Jan 21, 2009
The Truth TellerThis was, by far, the best book of Angela Hunt's that I have read. I loved the facts she included about genetic research. Lara was a courageous antagonist. I rooted for her every step of the way. The book kept me in suspense to the very end. I love the way the author weaved the character's faith and prayer life into the story as part of her everyday life. Sloane was a drasty villian. I highly recommend this book.
The Chick Flick that Would be Thriller Sep 19, 2007
Although I wasn't bored with this book, I felt that it missed a lot of potential and ended anticlimactically. What could have become a story of international intrigue was ultimately just another Christian romance novel. It's too bad the Christian book world rarely dares to be more.
She just keeps getting better and better. Dec 27, 2006
Angela Hunt is one of my favorite Christian authors! THis book keeps you going to the end.
Great novel. Very well written and engaging Mar 30, 2006
"The Truth Teller" is a great novel. The characters are very believable and the dialogue is well done. The story involves a young widow who wishes to have a baby. Her late husband has left a sperm sample, but he died of cancer. Should she risk the pregnancy? Complicating it all is an evil and rich man. This smooth operator with a hidden agenda plans to use and exploit Lara, by having her become pregnant with DNA from an "iceman" who froze to death thousands of years ago. The story is GREAT! Many plots twists and turns. I loved it.
