It is rare to find a women-centric novel which also comes with a realistic story, but this is one book that you would want to keep permanently in your library due to its rarity. Who said that "let bygones be bygones"? As much as we would like to kill and bury the past, it is never actually buried. Our past is something that we have to face in form or other form of 'karma' in this lifetime; we simply cannot avoid it. "Confronting Truths" is a book that exhibits this bitter truth. It is a very well structured book with realistically drawn characters. All the three adult women in this book have one or other form of dark past. Jessica's mental dilemma is greatly described in this passage:

"Jessica watched her daughter depart with a swelling pride that simply could not be overstated. She smiled. Nina was her golden child, born at a time in her life when she thought grief over the loss of her son would overtake her. Had they created her out of love—or grief? It did not matter. She had saved Jessica, and that’s all that mattered."

Although their pain is great, thankfully these women don't behave like 16-year old immature girls indulging in self-pity on every page of the ebook. The way the lives of these characters are interwoven with each other is truly one of a kind of artistic accomplishment on the part of the author. The dialogs are sometimes quite humorous, like:

"You can call me anything you want, as long as you don’t call me his wife."

Suggestion for the author: a table of contents at the start would be helpful. Sometimes when reading a particular chapter I wanted to jump back to the previous chapter to get a recap of all the events which happened before - so as to get the right perspective about the story, but the only way I could do it is by scrolling back and forth. That is the only reason I could not award this book five stars
