“Deceive Me Not” was in fact quite deceiving! As soon as the story started rolling,
my family knew to leave me alone until I was finished!
Imagine learning at the age of forty-nine that you were adopted, and in the course of tracing your birth parents, find
your happy thirty-year marriage threatened by the outcome.
This is the dilemma facing Barbara McNab when she returns alone to the English village of Littlingham where she believes
she was born. Before her search is over she will learn how children suffer psychologically when war separates them for many
years from their families; how, for some whose entire families died as a result of war, the guilt of survival causes lifelong
Missing her husband, but afraid to reveal her search’s unimaginable conclusion, Barbara struggles alone to solve
the mystery. Underlying the adventure, mystery and even murder, is the story of a love that, having thrived for thirty years,
is strengthened by coming so close to being lost forever.
“I’ve just been treated to Jura MacLean Sherwood’s third book Deceive Me Not and found myself
drawn in from the first page. This book has something for everyone. There is adventure, mystery and murder as well as a love
story. This is contained within one woman’s search to unravel family secrets and is told in a very compelling way.”
– Marsha Markham
The two main characters were the fair Barbara, unaware of just how much she lost in World War II until she is in her older
years, and her husband John, who would love to be able to forget losing his whole world during the same time. “Deceive
Me Not” begins with Barbara’s family as her world is about to change forever, then moves to America 1985
as Barbara tells John she has bought tickets for them to travel to England for their 30th anniversary.
From there the story flashes back and forth between the past and the present in a whirlwind of activity, memories, and
fears for the future.
This is definitely a worthwhile read! Just don’t think you have it all figured out though… I promise you that
you don’t! - Anne Marie C. Raymond, Reviewer for Keep It Coming
