Book Review: HOME TRUTHS by Susan Lewis


Jonathan Ball Publishers gifted me a copy of this book in return for an honest review.


Angie Watts used to have everything. A new home. A beloved husband. Three adored children.

Then Angie’s perfect life is shattered – and it’s up to her to hold the family together.

Her son is missing. Her daughter is looking for help in dangerous places. And it’s getting harder and harder for Angie to keep them safe.

But Angie is a mother. And a mother will protect her family whatever it takes…

Page-turning and emotional, Home Truths is the stunning new novel from the Sunday Times bestseller.


When I finished this book the following sayings came to mind: “Every cloud has a silver lining” & “There’s light at the end of the tunnel”

This was a beautiful story of the love of a mother and the lengths she would go to keep her family safe and together.

From the very beginning I was hooked. I needed to know what happened and why it happened. The book though, started off with a cliffhanger and then went into the life of a mother that is given a really raw deal. She struggles keeping it together.

This book deals with issues of debt, missing children, violence, trafficking of drugs and people. This might be a trigger if you have dealt with issues before. It’s heart-breaking and emotional. As a mother, it hit me to the very core. I was so empathetic of Angie. I kept asking myself if I would be able to go through this as a single parent.

Loved it! If you love emotional books that give you that real life feel, I would recommend this book.
