    Two girls disappear from their community and the body of one of them floats down the river into town. The other girl returns two years later with her tongue cut out of her mouth, unable to tell the story of her captivity. Judith’s family and friends tolerate her maimed presence, but she feels alienated as “damaged goods.” She retreats into her silence until her community faces a grave danger, and Judith forces herself to break her silence to save the people she loves.

    A murder mystery with an ambiguous historical setting and elements of romance, All the Truth That’s in Me captured my attention and kept it to the very end. With echoes of The Scarlet Letter and The Crucible, I enjoyed the ambiguity of the setting and the unspoken events of Judith’s captivity. This story reinforces the ideas that appearances can deceive and that the true bonds of friendship can weather any storm.

    Rating: 4 stars
