The Color of Truth (The Chain of Lakes Book 3) by Stacy Monson is a heartwarming story about Marti, a young adult who has had an extraordinarily bad life. Having a father in jail and a drunk for a mother, Marti has felt anything but loved. Her sister, Katie, who is still a minor and has been placed in foster care, is developmentally challenged and Marti carries that burden on her shoulders as well. Unknowingly, Marti allowed a very bad man (a drug dealer) to come into her life. A decision that will put her and her sister in danger. And then there’s Sam, who has suffered much himself. After a tragic event at the youth center and his pregnant wife walking out on him, Sam struggles with his own issues of guilt and self-worth.
The Color of Truth is a truly encouraging story of God’s love and grace. Stacy Monson has created beautiful characters that speak to the heart. I couldn’t help but love and feel for Marti and Sam. I enjoyed the way God worked in Marti’s life to give her the self-confidence she needed to realize just how capable she was. I felt a strong connection to Marti. Her lack of self-worth and feelings of inadequacy touched me on a whole new level. This is the third book in The Chain of Lake series and, although I haven’t read the first two, I had no problem following the story. The Color of Truth is easily a stand-alone book. I look forward to reading the first two in the series. Applause to Stacy Monson for creating a beautiful story.
