The Mystery: Finding True Love in a World of Broken Lovers is a book about finding faith, written by Lacey Sturm, the lead singer of the band Flyleaf. In the book, Sturm talks about how [possible spoilers ahead!] she felt like an orphan – and even found a substitute father figure through church – but ultimately found the best Father figure through her relationship with Jesus Christ. The book also chronicles how Sturm built a healthy romantic relationship after severing an emotional affair with a married man.
Calling a book “authentic” may not have much meaning, since how does a reader know whether a new memoir is truly authentic or not? But the book certainly feels authentic – and personal, and true. It feels like the author is showing readers that God can and will deliver them, even at the lowest times in life.
