Dahlia Kennedy's sixteenth birthday marks a decade of mysterious dahlias arriving and strange, lonely dreams of being in a forest. The only difference this birthday, however, is that for the first time, someone is there with her. And he's practically from a whole other era.
The more often Dahlia visits Rowan in his land of Ambrosia, the stronger their connection grows. But... is Ambrosia real? Is he real? What is going on between the two of them, exactly, and why does he insist that she keep it to herself?
As secrets usually go, however, it's only a matter of time before everything comes out. And when Dahlia finds out the truth of who Rowan is, who she is, and how he really feels -- it’s beyond anything she could have ever imagined.
Purchase If I Speak True
I am sad to say that I have not finished reading If I Speak True. As I'm typing this, I am itching to pick up my Kindle again so I can continue reading!
A whopping 500+ pages, If I Speak True is packed full of words I can't skim over. 47% into this book and I am enthralled! Brooks has definitely hooked me and I'm not wanting to let go.
I have a feeling I'm going to be very grateful that this is going to be part of a series. I'm not sure how many books she's planning to have in the Flora set, but I will be reading any, and all, that she publishes!
I will have a full review when I finish reading the remainder of the book!
