The Truth According to UsThe Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful book about small town life and hidden stories waiting to be uncovered. The quirky characters, the 1938 Great Depression setting West Virginia, and the intertwined stories made this a difficult book to put down. Good insights regarding the "truths/lies" of both written and oral history and the importance of loyalty and forgiveness. Anne Barrows is the co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society which I also loved. I listened to the full-cast audio version which is very well done.
