True to you starts out a little light.  Readers might think it a romance and no more. But the story has a depth that enhances the relationship of two unlikely subjects.

Genealogist Nora Bradford went through a difficult break up several years ago so when she meets John Lawson, a former Navy Seal and famous in his own right with a book and movie about his life, she feels anything but attractive and appealing. John has a steady girlfriend but finds quirky yet intense Nora a breath of fresh air as they spend time together looking for his birth mother.

John has a serious medical condition causing him to make this search. Yet when he meets his biological mother, a strange twist of fate causes a link between his birth and the death of Nora’s mother. The reader will be stunned. How can God bring about good through this and in their relationship? Just watch Him!

The truth may hurt at times but as believers we know that the truth will set us free as it does in True to you.
