About the Book

While growing up as the favorite child in a large family in Alabama, Henrietta Fogg is first introduced to church in the den of her home where worshippers gather every Sunday morning with fans, tambourines, and seat cushions. But when her mother eventually becomes pastor of a small church, she makes her family conduct themselves as saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost. However, all is not what it appears to be.

As she matures in a strict home where beatings are a common occurrence, Henrietta embarks on a coming-of-age journey from innocence into adolescence that includes diverse experiences, bullying, and crushes on boys. While Henrietta battles to find her true self amid the chaos, exploration, and angst surrounding her teens and beyond, she must sort through all the lies and deceit in her world. But when her journey leads her to ultimately unveil a long-held family secret, everything changes as she becomes intertwined in a nightmare she never imagined.

Lies and Deceit is the tale of an innocent church-going girl’s experiences as she matures into a determined young woman who passionately pursues everything she desires in life.
