The Lies We Are: A dead man’s secrets. A girl’s forgotten past. The key to both mysteries is buried within three pages torn from a Civil War diary, raising questions that will pit Sandi Beck against a small-town Southern dynasty, a billionaire developer, and her own conflicting desires. As she untangles 150 years of lies, Sandi is faced with a choice will she pursue the truth at any cost, even if the price is her own life? In a story that could be ripped from today’s headlines, this sequel to Kind Lies exposes the dark influence of greed and bitterness on the human heart.
