A tangled web of secrets threaten to destroy the lives of each person involved – Donna, her boyfriend Bobby, and Rick, Bobby’s best friend. Will the truth make them free, or will they lose their friendship forever?

My review
This book is an interesting one, since it deals with a time period that a lot of Christian authors shy away from, the late 1960's. I felt like, for the most part, it did a great job of bringing to life the time.
This one does deal with some tough issues, so I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone. I feel like the characters could of had a bit more feeling to the difficult situations they were put in (like apprehensive about being sent off to war?). I do look forward to reading more by the authors though!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.

Take a step back in time…

If He Only Knew is a novel set in the late 1960s. The book deals with family relationships, loyalty, friendship, love, and loss. The main topic is somewhat controversial in nature, but we won’t mention what it is lest we spoil the story for readers. A similar book was written in a different genre under another name and the story really resonated with readers. We felt compelled to share this story with others who perhaps wouldn’t pick up that particular genre, and that is how this book came about. It may be set in the sixties, but the message is as relevant today as ever. Our prayer is that God will touch readers’ hearts and draw them closer to Him.
