Reviews - What do customers think about Truth Be Told?
The Urban Book Source Aug 13, 2007
Truth Be Told is not your ordinary Christian Fiction novel. Far from preachy, Victoria Christopher Murray has crafted a page turner that takes you on a spiritual journey into the lives of Grace and Conner, a well-to-do African American couple who seem to have everything perfect, until a secret surfaces and threatens to shatter their marriage and test their faith. Although the plot is a staple in many books, Murray adds a fresh twist of faith that will keep the attention of her readers. Mrs. Christoper Murray has indeed mastered the art of contemporary ministering through story-telling.
Wasnt for me May 10, 2007
This was the first time I read a book by this author and the story just was so unrealistic and predictable for me. Its a decent read and I would purchase another book by her.
What's done in the dark, comes to the light Apr 3, 2007
Like always, Victoria seems to bring marriages through tough situations but in the end, God gets the glory. This was a story of a man having an affair before he became a christian. Once he learned years later that he bared a son during his affair; the truth had to be told to his wife in order to live a normal life.
"Truth Be Told?...So What!" Nov 1, 2006
There's really nothing to say about this novel other than it was boring,predictable and the chapters were too long to get to the point.
The Truth Was Some What Told Jan 7, 2006
This is the 3nd book that I've read by this author. This is a good story about infidelity and how a family deals with a child out of wedlock. Although this was a great story-line, the author failed to go into detail regarding the underlying issues regarding infidelity and lack of spiritual connection with God. Rather, the author scrubs the surfaces of both these issues.
