Editorial Reviews


“The human spirit inspires all of us to help another, with the benefit of our own experiences, trials, and tribulations. Lucinda's book is an honest, open, quieting story that so many spouses and family members who have lost loved ones, or experienced extreme tragedy, will learn from. Love and honesty with one another is what improves us all, and Lucinda does just that in Truth Be Told. It is so worth reading!”
--Delilah, National radio personality and author "
Truth Be Told tells an intimate, powerful, and riveting story of success and loss. Everyone has tragedies in their lives; it is what one does with them that matters most. This book will be an inspiration to many, especially to anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide. I highly recommend it." --Daniel Amen, MD “Having been honored to review Lucinda Bassett's remarkable memoir, this day ends with a feeling of gratitude and peace. Lucinda's capacity for love, empathy, and forgiveness is her key to the immortality. I believe that destiny follows from a life that touches fellow travelers in those shared moments of love and beauty that transcend the inevitable losses that intrude in this gift of being.” --Owen Stanley Surman, MD, Psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School
"Lucinda Bassett's life journey will inspire others to move beyond extreme pain and find peace again. I recommend this book to anyone who has experienced loss and heartbreak-and that would be just about everyone." --Kenny Loggins, Grammy®-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist, and author "This is an incredibly moving and candid story of one the most loving and successful couples in direct-response television who made it their business to help people. In this powerful memoir, Lucinda has chosen once again to use her pain and struggle to help others heal. A beautiful tribute to her husband, and an inspiring read for anyone who has experienced tragedy or loss." --Bill Guthy, Cofounder of Guthy-Renker "These are difficult times, and many people are experiencing tremendous anxiety, loss, and tragedy. This compelling memoir is a timely reminder that hope, loved ones, patience, and strong conviction and belief in your own ability to survive, and eventually thrive again, will ultimately get you through and absolutely make you stronger. An excellent, intimate, and highly motivating read." --George J. Pratt, PhD, co-author of
Code to Joy and past chairman of psychology at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, CA  --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
