    The story of Clay and his messed up past with his ongoing struggles to overcome all the bad stuff and to turn his life around was riveting. Clay used whiskey as a crutch to combat the emotional and physical pain of past and present failures. Quite honestly, he seemed like a hopeless case as I got into the book. However, unlike many in this world, he was surrounded by people who cared and would not give up on him. As the story unfolds, he discovers that others around him have experienced huge failures in their lives as well. Of all the characters, I admired his sister the most. She puts up with him and his constant turning to the bottle, allowing him to live in her house, knowing he has whiskey hidden in several places. She comments at one point about being a recovering alcoholic herself. Many recovering alcoholics would have probably started drinking again if they had to put up with someone like him. Although the story is primarily Clay’s story, his sister was truly a hero. I recommend this book to anyone who has failed and struggled to get back up, sometimes hardly caring enough to keep trying. The truth will set you free. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    With God nothing is impossible, is surely shown in The Lost Truth by T. K. Chapin. I am not going to say that this was what I would not call an easy read. Several times I wanted to give up on Clay. However, Mr. Chapin clearly show how God never does and we shouldn’t either.The Lost Truth is a compelling story that was hard to read and yet hard to put down, too. While Clay seemingly had lots of support at times, each of these people had their own struggles including his young daughter, Cindy. It amazed me how all of these lives were intertwined.In the end, the age old question of why God allows bad things to happen to good people is still not clearly answered. What is shown is how people who turn to him can come out stronger as they can depend on Him. I do wish Clay had turned back to Him sooner.4.5 StarsThe author provided a copy for an honest review.

    This is another one from this author that I thoroughly enjoyed. T. K. certainly knows how to write a story with wonderful characters and a story line that wouldn’t let me put the book down until I had finished it. The Lost Truth is a beautiful story of second chances and how no matter what has happened in the past, God is always there waiting to redeem and restore. I was privileged to receive an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review, and this is another one from this author that I highly recommend.

    A true story of how God works in mysterious ways to show us that we don’t have to be perfect to experience that love. He will be there no matter what.

    This story is powerful, complex, heavy, but ultimately hopeful. The Rascal Flatts song from which the title was taken could be used as the theme for this book. “This much I know is true/ That God blessed the broken road/ That led me straight to you…” I recommend it due to the complex characters, plot twists, the honest depiction of the thought processes of a man using alcohol to dull his pain, and the man’s ultimate redemption.

    Mr. Chapin never fails to amaze me with how he can take ordinary things we often take for granted, put them in a book at different intervals and pull them all together at the end to make a book filled with inspiration. In true Chapin form he has done it again in “The Lost Truth”.In this book Clay Roberts lost his way after an incident on his Sunday morning church bus route stop at the Country Corner Trailer Park. He lost not only his family, but also his faith, his home and his job. With no way to support himself he was forced to move in with his sister, Janice, who required him to go to counseling. Clay wanted no part of it, but knew his sister would enforce “tough-love” then he really would be homeless. As he began counseling with his pastor-friend, John, along with long-time friend and therapist, Katie, Kip, a bird with a damaged wing and a boat, his soul and body began to heal.Once again Mr. Chapin takes devastating events in life and shows how God can turn your life around and restore your faith. He shows the journey is not always easy, but the love of God is unfailing. You will be captivated from the first page as you watch Clay struggle with his demons and lash out at those who love him. For me, the ending of the book was very surprising but most fitting.This book is inspirational and thought-provoking. It provides a simple guide-line for getting your life with God back on track without being “preachy”…I highly recommend this book. Your life will definitely be enriched for having read it.Disclosure: I was given a copy of this eBook by the author, T.K. Chapin, for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.

    The Lost Truth: Inspirational Christian Fiction, written by T.K. Chapin, is the first book of The Lost Truths series.This book introduces us to Clay Roberts. He’s a guy that could be anyone we know…He has a wife, a daughter, a good job, and was a faithful follower of Christ, but then one Sunday morning he went to the Country Corners Trailer Park…life as he knew it would forever be changed.I loved how Chapin takes this story to a different level than in his other series. He begins this book with the verse from I Peter 2 where it mentions “lost sheep gone astray…” He weaves in the background of why Clay is the way he is today because of an incident that happened. Throughout the story he uses a unique character which helps bring Clay to a point where he has to see what a mess he’s made of his life. Clay has been floating along in the boat of the life he created and doesn’t realize he was made to fly…not to be eaten up within the mess he’s made of his life. Chapin takes this character on an adventure through life in search for The Lost Truth…can he actually find it himself or is it a lost cause?After reading this book, I sat back and really thought about all the aspects that happened to Clay and the other characters within the book. There were so many things that touched me and Chapin was able to really help the reader feel what was going on in their lives. I actually had a dream the night after I read it of the story’s continuance! I definitely didn’t feel this was a shallow read, but rather one that could make a difference in a life of the reader. Totally recommend this read!
