TRUTH BE TOLD by Carol Cox
Author of thirty novels and novellas, Carol Cox has an abiding love for history and romance, especially when it’s set in her native Southwest. As a third-generation Arizonan, she takes keen interest in the Old West and hopes to make it live again in the hearts of her readers. A pastor’s wife, Carol lives with her husband and daughter in northern Arizona, where the deer and the antelope really do play—within view of the family’s front porch.
From the book’s back cover
When Amelia Wagner takes over her father’s newspaper in 1893 Granite Springs, Arizona, she vows to carry on the paper’s commitment to reporting only the truth. But Amelia soon learns that even the truth can have serious consequences. Her father’s revealing articles about the Great Western Investment Company have caught the attention of the wrong people, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father’s statements.
Determined to find out the real story, Amelia begins her own investigation. She’s joined by Benjamin Stone, a Western employee who’s been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company, a man Amelia finds both perplexing and intriguing.
What they uncover stuns them both—and has far-reaching implications for not only Ben and Amelia but all of Granite Springs. Can they reveal the truth before the enemy finds a way to silence them for good?
When her father dies, Amelia Wagner becomes the owner and operator of his newspaper in 1893 Arkansas. Her father had instilled in her that a newspaper writer always told the truth. The Great Western Investment Company wants her to retract statements her father published. After small incidents don’t scare Amelia enough to retract the statements, the company assigns one of their employees, Benjamin Stone, to get close to her and convince her to retract the statements. Instead of doing that, Benjamin recognizes her bravery and helps her to uncover proof to back up her father’s articles. Cox writes memorable characters, vivid settings descriptions, and emotions of the heart. This book has ample tension to keep the reader turning pages.
