The Thorn of Truth


Having read four of SL Russell’s previous books, I was keen to read this one too. What I find so memorable about her writing, is her ability to create characters that stay with me long after I have finished the book. The Thorn of Truth is no different. I got drawn into the world of Anna and the moral, ethical and spiritual issues with which she is grappling. I was also delighted to see characters from SL Russell’s previous book The Healing Knife appear in this book as well.

The Thorn of Truth is the second book in a short series of related stories. The first, The Healing Knife, had me so enthralled that I read it in one sitting. If you enjoyed The Healing Knife you won’t be disappointed with this new work. Although S.L. Russell writes in a genre I would not normally read, hers are books for which I gladly make an exception. Why? Beautifully written in an engaging style, her refreshing contemporary Christian novels stand out as authentic, realistic, sometimes gritty and always compassionate.
