Stolen Truth

260 Kindle edition pages


Stolen Truth is a modern-day psychological thriller written by Henya Drescher and expected to be released in the spring of 2020. The main character in the story is Bree Michaelson, a new mother, who wakes up feeling groggy and disoriented to find her husband and brand-new baby boy missing from their home. Immediately distraught and concerned for her baby’s safety, Bree starts contacting family and the authorities to get a jump-start on finding her missing son.

Though Bree seems to jump into action as any other concerned mother would, she is viewed with a suspicious eye due to some psychological episodes from her past. Along with her missing infant son, Bree’s husband Todd is also missing, along with her live-in midwife, Connie, as well as any semblance that they had ever existed. Does Bree actually have a husband and a new baby? Are they indeed missing? Or is this all part of her calamitous past coming back to haunt her?

Stolen Truth is an action-packed novel fueled by the revelation that you really never know anyone, especially those who appear closest to you. There were times where I felt like society was truly failing Bree and other times when I became overwhelmingly frustrated with her character’s lack of communication skills needed to get her situation handled. I was also disappointed with the way her character was repeatedly taken advantage of or disregarded by her family, acquaintances, and male companions.

Though I did have some internal struggles with the main character, I was enthralled by this story and immediately informed my sister that I had the best recommendation for her. As a lover of psychological thrillers, Stolen Truth did not disappoint and I’m thrilled to give my rating of 4 out of 4 stars. Some of my favorite psychological thrillers have been Gone Girl, Sometimes I Lie, and Baby Teeth, and this one seriously gives off the same feeling that just sticks with you long after you’re done. You don’t want to miss out on reading Stolen Truth when it’s released!

I’ve certainly had the luck of the draw for 2021 so far and have immensely enjoyed almost every book I’ve picked up. No complaints here, I think that’s the best way to start a new year. 🙂
