It’s very rare that I read a book and somewhere along the way it starts to minister to my soul. Tell Me Lies did exactly that and it took me longer to read than it should have because I had to stop and reflect on my own struggle with forgiveness and being able to give it to others and even myself. Michelle Lindo-Rice once again defies how some think the genre of Christian fiction should be written as she deals with some pretty edgy topics and she handles them in a way that the reader does not feel as if they are being preached to.
This book centers around two things: forgiveness and love. Those are two things that most folks have found great joy in as well having problems giving and receiving. At times, love and forgiveness are interchangeable and that is truly the case when reading Sydney’s story. Sometimes we must learn the very hard lesson of forgiving those that have done us wrong so we can really see love and then welcome it in our hearts. Lindo-Rice already has some excellent books in her portfolio, but it is my opinion that Tell Me Lies is her best piece of work yet!
