Young Adult Novel, by Sally Lotz
Available on Amazon (Kindle and Print)
Inspired by actual events, The Truth is a Lie is the story of fifteen-year-old Sara, a devout member of the Truth. Sara is dedicated to the ways of the Truth: keeping separate from the Worldly and obeying all that Jehovah requires. Her reward? Eternal life in Paradise Earth after Jehovah destroys the world in Armageddon. When Rachel, an 18-year-old Sister, moves in and shares with Sara, she was sexually assaulted by someone in the Truth, someone close to them both. Sara's world is torn in two when she has to decide whether to follow the rules of the Truth, stay silent, and let Jehovah take care of it. Or, risk losing her family, her salvation, and everything she knows by running to the Worldly, the people she was taught to fear and hate, for help.
