Truth in Patience concludes the story. . .
 
Truth in the past. 
Truth in reality. 
Truth for tomorrow. 
Finally adjusting to life in small town Texas, Ashley Asher sees a glimmer of what happiness really is. Even her new relationship with the attentive Joshua Brandt shows promise of a first romance. But Ashley's fear of intimacy after years of unspeakable abuse may cause friction and distance in their relationship. Determined to prove to her that she's healing, Dr. Matt, her beloved therapist, shows her that "life is messy." And he doesn't know how messy it is about to get. When her mother decides that Ashley belongs back in their hometown with her, Ashley is forced into another family feud that she isn't prepared for. Refusing to leave behind the new life she created in Texas, Ashley and her mother go head-to-head. But can Ashley finally find the courage and strength to battle her demons when her mother might be the biggest demon of all?

Truth In Patience is the third and final book in the Patience Trilogy.  As Ashley tries to get settled in a small town, her past is still haunting her to the point that she can finally remember what really happened when her Step-Father abused her. As she copes with that, her Mother comes back in the picture wanting to be with Ashley again but as Ashley is realizing that her Mother maybe the bigger monster in the picture in an epic showdown that will have you cheering on Ashley in her new journey of life. 

All I can say is that this book is kinda amazing and I never even read the first two books in this series and that says a lot about it coming from me! You can feel Ashley's pain in what she had to go through and her dealings with her Mother, it just makes you think about everyone who is going through something like this in real life. This book needs to be in Public Schools just to get everyone talking and maybe just maybe, get someone to speak out about what is going on at home. 

Thank You to Beth Fehlbaum for writing a series that deals with a very touchy subject that needs to be talked about more!
